Recently I had a computer crash (MacBookAir) and had to replace it (MacBookPro) and did a restore from the Time Machine. Since then I cannot borrow books from the public library; I get the following error message: E_ACT_NOT_READY. Any suggestion how to fix this?
I had the exact same problem & this worked for me. All I needed was the first step. Good luck!!!! (copied from another thread):
"Sometimes ADE gets its registration/activation confused and in a semi-authorized state.
Uninstalling and reinstalling does not help, and indeed installation can even trigger this state.
Unfortunately, it often then gives misleading error messages about what is wrong.
A common incorrect message informs you that the ID is already in use on another computer and cannot be reused.
Another is "E_AUTH_NOT_READY"
This can often be resolved by completely removing any authorization using ctrl-shift-D to the Library screen on ADE (cmd-shift-D if on Mac).
Restart ADE, and then reauthorize with your (old) Adobe ID.
In extreme cases on the mac, the following extra step has helped some people. Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash. If you are using 10.7, see Access hidden user library files | Mac OS 10.7 Lion. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1265248?tstart=0
I get the same code. And then when I try to deauthorize, I get Unable to erase authorization.
I also get this code
Ah, it doesn't show. It's: "E_ADEPT_INTERNAL"
