      Hello, I´m trying to log in Adobe Digital Edition and ir showm me the following error:

      E_ACT_TOO_MANY_ACTIVATIONS http://adeactivate.adobe.com/adept/Activate 414:8414:8414 urn:uuid:bd2c6055-e92f-4be2-ab6f-f442f84a1d01


      I activated and deactivated my computer many times in Adobe Digital Editions, I didn´t know that it´s not allowed.


      What can I do to use it again with the same Adobe Id?

          I'm having the same problem.  I had to get a replacement Nook due to warrantly issue.  The first one took forever to set up but once it got it working everything was perfect.  Now I am trying to authorize the new one and I get the too many activations message.  When I "try again" I get the bad device message.  I have tried for a week to submit a web case but I keep getting the "error processing your request" screen, same when I try to fill out the form.  From what I understand this application has no phone support, so how can I get my authorizations reset if Adobe won't let me submit the problem online?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

              In order to fix this Activation error you need to open a web case with Adobe. Only they are the people who can fix this error by resetting Activation for your Adobe ID. This can only be done via email as they do not support Digital Editions on phone.


              In order to open a web case with Adobe you may follow the steps as suggested below.


              1. Go to www.adobe.com

              1. Login to your Account..

              2. Go to View Support Information

              3. Choose Issue Type : Using a product or service

              4. Choose Additional Products - Digital Editions

              5. Fill out the form. You can leave the Support Plan ID blank (says the customer service chat person)


              I hope that helps!

                Thanks for your help.  I was finally able to get web case submitted and adobe responded and reset my authorizations within about 8 hours!

                  I too have run into this error today.  I work at a library and often deactivate my ade to help other staff and patrons.  I have my personal laptop, my droid and a computer at the library, so only 3 devices, but ade will not let me activate my work computer this time.  I tried to fill out a web issue and Adobe will not let me access the form.  So, how do I get my device activated again?
