I am puzzled regarding how to load Adobe plugins that are listed in the Digital Edition Help menu selection "About Adobe Plugins".  The info window for this topic shows a collection of Adobe Plugins that (I guess) came with my install of the software.  But some of them are shown as loaded and some are shown as not loaded, such as the DRM plugin for example.  Some of them seem to be loaded at some times but not loaded at other times, and there is no control or function that I can see .that provides this functionality.  I cannot find any info on how to find, load, unload, actyivate, or whatever in the Help files.  The list is pretty long and most are loaded, but I would like to now where to get plugins, how to install and activate and control them, and so on for the DC reader so that I can control what is available etc.  Any help would be appreciated.

This reader is the greatest PDF reader for my Win desktop PC ever, I wish there was a version for my Android tablet that was as marvelous and as functionable as the desktop version....

The DRM plugin will be loaded when you open a PDF file with Adobe DRM protection.

Thanks for the reply. Should I presume that the Reader software itself will determine and control the enabling and disabling of plugins behind the scene so I do not have to control this function? Where can I get more information on Adobe plugins, how to acquire, install, and use them etc.? I could not find anything specific in the Help file or FAQs or anywhere else on the website.

OK that does answer my question. Sorry, but I went on the forum website and do not see any way to indicate the closure, unless you are referring to the Action selection, which merely pops up a meaningless message. So feel free to close the thread for me, with ny thanks.

Every time I try to open the DRM PDF eBook in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC or Reader (opens fine in Adobe Digital Editions just sucks to read/note take/do anything useful with the PDF) I receive an error message stating "There was an error opening this document. The security plug-in required by this command is unavailable."

How do I fix that? Is this the same problem as the person above?
