    Check Activation


      Recently, my Digital Editions stopped working completely, and would no longer open. I tried restarting my laptop, verifying files, all of that, and it still would not open. Upon uninstalling and reinstalling, every time I try and add a book to Digital Editions, I get an "Error! Check Activation" message. My computer and Digital Editions are registered, and I have absolutely no idea how to open books anymore. In desperate need to know how to fix this, as I use Digital Editions a lot for my work, and I am now seriously behind due to the application not working, and now even more behind due to this. Thanks.

              Close all applications.

              In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.

              In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept

              Remove the Adept Folder.

              In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.

              Close the Registry Editor.

              Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize..




              quit Adobe Digital Editions.
