I can't access any of my books on digital editions because when the program opens I get an error message saying I must download the newest update. When I click on this message to update it just shuts down Editions and doesn't take me to an update webpage. Also, when I click to update later, it shuts down Editions as well. I tried downloading the newest version on the adobe website, but this just opens my current program with the same error message. Help! This is so frustrating. I paid for my e-books and I want to be able to read them!
You can download the latest version of Digital Editions by going to http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions , however since that doesn't seem to be working for you will want to use the stand alone installer which you can get at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/digitalpublishing/ (click on "Digital Editions Stand Alone Installer" link)
