You can download install it from adobe.com, in case you don’t have it. (Adobe page may load slow, so please be patient).
After the installation is finished, you will have to authorize the device when the 'Adobe Digital Edition' will ask you for it. In case you don’t have an ADOBE ID, please click on the "get an Adobe ID online". For Registration, you will be taken to 'Adobe site', once you click on 'get an Adobe ID online'. Enter your new adobe-id, when you are done with registration, in the dialog box and then allow the 'Adobe Digital Edition' to this adobe-id.
Warning: In order to access the downloaded file from different PC/Machine, users must make sure that they authorize their 'Adobe Digital Edition' with adobe-id (which is their email-id registered at adobe.com). If the users do not authorize your 'Adobe Digital Edition' with adobe-id, any ebooks downloaded to it can be read only and only on the same machine. With the support of various devices, this application holds up with PC/Desktops with Windows/Mac-OS and e-readers where you can also copy the ebook on at most 6 devices.
Click 'library view' of your 'Adobe Digital Edition' and select 'Authorize computer' from the drop-down to authorize.
Users must follow the steps mentioned above to authorize with an adobe-id.
The system may now automatically ask you to open the downloaded file with 'Adobe Digital Edition'. You must click 'OK'/'yes' and proceeding to this, the PDF/EPUB file will automatically get downloaded in a few seconds and appear in your library for reading.
Please save the folder, in case the system doesn't prompt you to open the downloaded file. It will be a file with ".acsm" extension. Then open 'Adobe Digital Edition' application and drag/drop the ***. acsm file into the reading-pane of 'Adobe Digital Edition'. This will automatically download the associated file.
This file can open with any device authorized with the 'same' adobe-id as it gets associated with your 'adobe-id'.
Still the file may not open and throw an I/O error #2038, according to which even though the 'Adobe Digital Edition' edition has the meta information for the file, but it doesn't have the actual pdf in the 'My Digital Editions' folder (in the 'My Documents' folder). Either it was moved by you or got deleted accidentally. Try to restore it if possible. There is a possibility that you had 'Download Manager' enabled when downloading which would have interfered with the download; please turn off the 'Download Manager' and re-initiate the download.
