I only have one Kobo reader presently authorized for ADE.  At one time I had two.  For some reason, one unit dropped the authorization, and now I cannot reauthorize.  How many units can I authorize with an Adobe ID?  How can I unauthorize that which I cannot see.  And how can i begin to authorize my second unit. When I attempt to authorize I get an error message stating Limit of number of machines authorized for this ID has been reached

Limit of number of machines allowed per ID reached

code: E_ACT_TOO_MANY_ACTIVATIONS http//adeactivate.adobe.com/adept/Activate 5883:883;6883 um:uid:0f425b44-3118-12b3-8054-9c42ccb22555

this computer cannot be authorized with your ID because you have reached the limit number of computers or devices that can be authorized with the same ID

I am assuming, because I have tried many times, that may be the reason that I have exceeded.  In that case I would need a method to reduce the supposed activations

I don't know about you, but my authorizations are now working.  As I did not do anything lately, I can only assume that Adobe has done something at their end.  I will never know

Another Sylvie. Same problem. Frustrating. Any news? It seems to be a very common Adobe Digital Editions issue.

I also have a problem with ADE.

 

It worked fine up until July 15, 2020. Since then, when I click the PDF link at Archive, nothing happens except that I get an empty new tab. ADE does not start up as it used to. I tried erasing authorization and re-authorizing, to no avail. Running Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron, if that's relevant.
