Hello to everybody,

I am struggling with a blocker with Adobe Digital Editions because I cannot open any ebook, it just the app does not load. I was searching in the event viewer and I found this:


Faulting application name: DigitalEditions.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5e85fa7a
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.746, time stamp: 0x197b16c5
Exception code: 0xe0434352
Fault offset: 0x0012a842
Faulting process id: 0x3c84
Faulting application start time: 0x01d6f51659251343
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Digital Editions 4.5\DigitalEditions.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll
Report Id: d9d47a95-2e22-4185-a506-6143b64c29f4
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:


It seems that is related with a problem with .NET Framework.


There are more info in another log:

I tried uninstalled and install the previous version 3.0 and I have the same issue.

Also I removed both .NET framework 3.5 and 4.8 from Control Panel -> Windows features and installed again but nothing changed.

Anyone knows how to fix this issue? I really will appreciate it...

Thank you
