This morning I created an account with Adobe so that I could transfer a book which I borrowed through Overdrive to my Kindle Reader (I have a desktop computer and do not want to be stuck reading the book on the desktop).
Two problems emerged. Each time I tried to input the e-mail address/password into the Authorization page it kept telling me, "Activation Server error. Digital Editions encountered an error on the activation server." In an effort to resolve the problem I reset my password. Still the same error message. The second problem is that while I am signed in, everything is copacetic. I can access my profile page, etc. The minute I sign out and attempt to sign in again, it tells me my password is incorrect. It did this BEFORE I reset my password.
Note: Years ago I signed up with Adobe to post in the Flash forum. Since I no longer use that e-mail address I created the current account from scratch. But I do not know whether the info for that account is not messing things up.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Happy to report, problem solved. I followed the instructions shown on the following page:
Authorize your computer
and deleted Registry entry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept. After that I was able to successfully authorize my computer.
Thanks for the indirect help!
