Ain't supposed to do that - and doesn't in a lot of installations.
But let's have more information: What computer system (Windows x or MAC)?
What anti-virus and firewall if you're on a PC? What version of the
software? Did you register with Adobe before downloading the software and
All of these factors will be important to answering your question. If
you're a Windows person, then the anti-virus settings could be causing a
problem. If you didn't register with Adobe before installing the software,
you could have problems, and so on.
I'm looking forward to the challenge of this puzzle.
Thanks for the help. Will download epub but not pdf from the local
library. Windows 7 Avast free virus protection, zone alarm firewall. I
would think that if it were a virus protection or firewall issue it
would not download either. Digital Editions is registered or it would
not download the epub and it says registerd.
The pdf book downloads from the library but when it comes into Adobe
Editions I get this message
Sorry, the file you are attempting to open cannot be opened by Digital Editions.

The pub comes in fine.
The message you're getting could be generated because the .pdf format from
the library is not supported. ADE has some limitations on certain .pdf
formats, and you can get more information on that from the FAQ's in ADE's
Hope this helps!
