To solved the issue can try this:
Uninstall Adobe Digital Edition.
Restart the System.
Install Version 3.0: Adobe Digital Editions downloads
Now try to open a eBook of the Library.
I had a same issue. Installed v3.0, no problem opening the ebook. Thanks for the tips!!
So I just tried uninstalling 4.5.6 and installing 3.0 but that still didn't work for me. I have the same hang and crash problem that the original person posted about in this thread. Anything else I can try?
You also used Windows 10?
Try to start software with right click and run as admin?
Yes I also have Windows 10. I tried right clicking on it and running it as an administrator but that still doesn't work. Thanks for trying to help though!
My problem isn't really hanging and crashing. It more freezes when I try to open a book and then says "not responding." So I have to close the program. Any other thoughts? (I already tried to uninstall/reinstall 4.5.6 as well.)
In my case, I had to delete the authority from 4.5 first. Register again in 3.0 Client. Removed & re-added the book from the library.
OK, so you mean that I should "Erase Authorization" in version 4.5 and then uninstall it, correct?
Thank you so much teapot88! Your suggestion finally allowed me to open the book.
I do think it is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous though that I had to jump through so many hoops to use this incredibly flawed Adobe program. Windows 10 has been out for an incredibly long time now so there should be a better fix than having to erase my authorization, uninstall the latest version of ADE, go back and install ADE 3.0, and than reauthorize.
Come on Adobe!
Thanks for the reply.
The reply raises the question, though, of when it will be appropriate to move to the newer version, and how will we know that it's appropriate to do so.
Totally agreed. I didn't uninstall the latest version, afraid the some books won't run on v3 so I kept both versions running on my machine.
