When installing Adobe Digital Editions, I  received a corruption error message."

This occurs because the installation software coming from  Adobe's Web site is unable to communicate and pass information through  your companies Firewall or PC security to save to the computer, or there  is potential that your network is "locked down" limiting the  accessibility on the PC to install or uninstall software.

"I'm having problems opening my  electronic documents."

The Electronic documents cannot be opened by Adobe Reader,  they can only be used with Adobe Digital Editions. Be sure that Adobe  Digital Editions was successfully installed and the File type  associations are set correctly for your machine.

Resolution: Uninstall Adobe Digital Editions and  reinstall. Do not authorize the computer, then contact an NAIC  Representative to assist you in obtaining your publication.

If you are getting error "E_ADEPT_REQUEST_EXPIRED http://adeactivate.adobe.com/adept/Activate 2010-04-11T06:51:59-07:00%20(1270993919000)%20is%20before%202010-08-11T06:21:57-07:00%20(1281532917795)"

"I am getting the error 'Error getting  License: License server communication problem:  E_LIC_ALREADY_FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER' when opening Adobe Digital  Editions."

This error message is a result of a several different issues:

  1. User has installed an Adobe ID on more than one machine
  2. User has modified the clocks on their computer
  3. User has modified their account from a "Do Not Authorize" to  an "Adobe Activated ID"
  4. User has uninstalled and re-installed Adobe Digital  Editions, but the installation is not being completely removed from the  computer.

Resolution: Follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall Adobe Digital Editions using one of these two  methods:
    • Start > Programs > Adobe > Adobe Digital Editions  > Uninstall
    • Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add Remove  Programs
  2. Initiate Uninstall
  3. In order to remove all remnants of Adobe Digital Editions /  Adobe Adept from the machine a "Registry Edit" will need to be  performed:
    • Start > Run > Regedit
  4. Search for HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Adobe >  Adept and Delete the full "Adept" folder
  5. Remove only the structures that are under the "SOFTWARE"  extensions. This will remove the Adobe ID / License and Activation Keys
  6. Clear any outstanding tasks that may be associated to Adobe  Digital Editions downloads
    • C:\data\my digital editions
    • C:\my documents\my digital editions
  7. Delete any documents within these folders:
    • Restore > Tasks

You will need to work with their publisher tech support to get a new .acsm file/download link which has not yet been associated with a particular user and then activate your computer with the new Adobe ID. Please refer to the below forum link, if that helps.

Authorizing your ereader with ADE

In most cases you can register your ereader quickly and simply. IF the following instructions do not work, please contact our ereader manufacturer directly.

1. Connect your ereader to your computer.

2. The ADE Authorize Device  window will pop up. [On rare occasions where the pop up does not happen automatically, please try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + E after connecting your ereader.]

3. Click on Authorize Device.

4. ADE should now recognize your ereader, and will list it within the “Bookshelves” area of the ADE window.

Note: Nook readers come with an Adobe ADE type directory preinstalled. It MUST be deleted from the Nook before ADE will recognize the Nook. Delete the directory from the Nook. Fire up ADE and everything works perfectly!

For error: "E_ACT_TOO_MANY_ACTIVATIONS http://adeactivate.adobe.com/adept/Activate 552:8552:8552 urn:uuid:5268ee4f-5511-4b47-b668-f42b089db9c0"

Ctrl+shift+T will enable error logging and can be used to find the issue with the complicated errors by Adobe specialist.

If you get error: E_AUTH_FAILED http://adeactivate.adobe.com/adept/SignInDirect email address

They reseted my activation count, the counter - or I don't f*** know what it is - 4 times, so they told me it's not their problem and I had to contact Adobe support. Strange that Adobe chat support is just able to redirect to the forum. Strange that Adobe forum support does not support users: I can read a lot of threads in the forum and most of them without a solution or ANSWER!  O.o

Anyway... after I tried to unistall, cleaned, re-install, again and again, I detected another error (E_ADEPT_DOCUMENT_TYPE_UNKNOWN) of which I read some thread, without success. I'm sick of this negligence.

So what's the point? Why did you make me try to open a "normal" ePub file if my file is ACSM ?

Anyway, is there a solution?

When I downloaded the Adobe digital editors software 4.5 11., documents compatible with the software are supposed to look like the image below (see image). However, when I download a URLink.acsm document, the format I end up with, is PDF format. How do I change the properties so that acsm documents look like the image I have provided?
