    ADOBE DIGITAL EDITIONS 4.5 it is stated:


      In the
      Getting Started With ADOBE DIGITAL EDITIONS 4.5 it is stated:

      • If
        you choose to authorize without an ID, ADE will enable reading of the book only
        on your computer. You will not be able to read it on other eReader devices or
        other computers (or the same computer if you re-install). If you don’t plan on
        moving your books to other computers (or re-installing), this approach will
        work for you.

      When I
      installed ADE on my PC it was done without an ID authorization. I have tried to
      change this to authorization with an ID by using the help function in ADE.

      I have
      filed in ID and password and then pressed continue but I only get up:

      • You can only authorize this computer with an Adobe ID that has not been
        previously used to authorize any other computer or mobile devices. Please try

      How do I change my computer authorization to
      with an ID?
