How to set up your computer to access ASCM URLS with Adobe Digital Edition for DRM-protected eBooks

  1. I downloaded the Adobe digital Edition from here: http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html
  2. I installed the downloaded Adobe  Digital edition like so:
  3. clip_image001
  4. clip_image002
  5. clip_image003
  6. I can now run the Adobe Digital Edition program:
  7. However, File / open / paste url won’t work.
  8. clip_image004
  9. Also, if I download the ASCM file, Windows still does not know which application to open ASCM file with
  10. clip_image005
  11. I CAN HOWEVER DOWNLOAD AN ASCM FILE AND DRAG drop this into an open digital edition window, to get this at least
  12. clip_image006
  13. I went  down the "authorize your computer" route:
  14. clip_image007
  15. clip_image008
  16. clip_image009
  17. clip_image010
  18. Here is my first example (from the Adobe samples website):
  19. clip_image011
  20. From now on, I can simply click on adobe digital edition links  with ASCM files.
  21. When getting the download dialogue, I can skip saving and click "open":
  22. clip_image012
  23. clip_image013
  24. clip_image014
  25. Note: you are consuming a license if you open te ebook with your account.
