Operating Systems and System Requirements
This service requires a compatible operating system for reader software. At present, Adobe Digital Editions is available for the Windows and OSX operating systems. Adobe Digital Editions is not available for Linux.
Unknown File Type (URLLink.acsm)
Ebook downloads are accomplished by opening the received URLLink.acsm file in the reader software. In some cases, it is possible that the file type is declared as unknown and reader software is not found for opening the file. In such cases, the file association must be set manually by pointing the file to Adobe Digital Editions. The easiest way to do this is to reinstall the reader software, but it is also possible to associate the file manually.
Firewall or Proxy Limiting Software Access
In some cases, firewall or proxy software can block the download of ebooks or reader software. When using the reader software, the firewall connection to the outside must be allowed when activating ebooks. Previously blocked network access must be allowed manually if there are some problems downloading ebooks or reader software.
