The computer is telling you that you don't have the ADMIN rights that are
needed to install the software. I'm going to guess that you're using
Windows 7 software. In that case, your user rights may be set by Win7 as a
'user', not as 'administrator'. You need to go back and log into the
computer as the ADMIN.
About that access to your ebook only when you were online. That can occur
when ADE has not been installed properly (see above).
The sequence of installation makes all the difference. The first step is to
go to the Adobe website and establish an Adobe account with an Adobe ID and
password that you choose. When you've done that, you can install ADE on
your computer ( assuming we get around this administrative access issue ).
When that is complete, you can go to the website where you bought your ebook
and download it to ADE on your computer. Then you can read it from the ADE
There are some technical considerations. If you have installed ADE on your
computer without having established an Adobe ID (which you can do - but
shouldn't), then you might not be able to reinstall it and still be able to
access the ebook you bought. This is because the publisher and distributor
could have set the ebook's digital rights to permit ONE download only.
Also, when you download the ebook - or when you did - you have choices as to
whether to OPEN or SAVE it. If you elect 'OPEN', then ADE will open the
ebook in Reading mode. It will not save the ebook in the library, so when
you open ADE in Library mode, the ebook won't be visible - although it's
still on your computer. If you can find the title in the folder inside
Digital Editions, then you can add the ebook to the library, using the Add
Book to Library function within ADE.
Much of what I'm saying here is pretty general, and there are certain tasks
that you perform to accomplish these steps. I don't know your level of
expertise with the computer, so I don't want to burden you with all of the
tasks at this time. Repost with more information, and we can go to that
level if we need to.
Hope this helps!
