I know there has been a fair amount of kickback regarding ADE and Windows 10.  In my case I have verified over and over that ADE 4.5.11 running on Win 10 1903 Build 18362.720 will NOT pull ePUB books from my public library.  I consistently get the E_ADEPT_DOCUMENT_TOO_SHORT error message back from my local library server.  Now as a further test to try and isolate this critical fault , I loaded a fresh copy of ADE 4.5.11 on another machine, my laptop running Win 7 SP2.  Browsed to my local library ePUB download site and brought downloaded the same ePUB book .acsm file I tried on the Windows 10 machine.  Voila, the .acsm file loaded into ADE and was processed perfectly and the ebook was deposited into the default library 'My Digital Editions'.  Other older ePUB books are also readable in my Win 7 library through ADE without any problems.  So its definitely the Windows 10 OS environment that ADE is choking over.  I also tried on the same Win 10 installation all the compatibilty switches, Win 7, 8, VISTA etc. to see if that might fix it.  Nope, on my Win 10 installation I still consistently get the file (XML reading) error when it tried to process it in ADE.  BTW when ADE is  running in my Windows 10 environment it doesn't display some of the other anomolies users have  reported such refusing to load, freezing, crashing or otherwise abending, just critical inability to process a .acsm ePUB download without error.  Is Adobe ever going to fix this is it so low on their fix list that whatever support team they have will never get to it?  I suspect with the suck big $$$ thru subscriptions from deep pocket companies model that Adobe has been running with the last few years that their 'Free' products are at rock bottom priority for any fixes.
