Titles Do Not Automatically Open Into Adobe Digital Editions – Windows 7

A PDF document of these instructions with images is also available.

If you download an eBook title to your computer from the HCPL Digital Media Catalog and either Adobe Digital Editions does not open automatically when downloading an eBook, or a different program other than the Adobe Digital Editions attempts to open it, please follow the instructions below.

1. Verify that you have Adobe Digital Editions installed. You may need to look in your programs folder. You may also have the Adobe Digital Editions icon on your desktop. The icon is grey with a maroon image of an open book. Older versions of Adobe Digital Editions had a brown background with a white image of an open book.

The first time you download an eBook from the HCPL Digital Media Catalog, there are many steps to do before everything will work properly. You will not have to do these again once they are done and downloading eBook titles will become simple. Please make sure your device is not plugged into your computer at this time.

Getting an Adobe ID – Pre-Software Download Steps

In order to read the eBooks from our digital library on your computer, or to transfer them to a portable device, you will need to install Adobe Digital editions to your computer. Please do not have your device connected to the computer until you are finished installing Adobe Digital Editions.
