After multiple attempts and while logged in as an Administrator, with a password, I'm still unable to install Adobe Digital Editions. Any suggestions? It seems that all the removal tools are dependent on ADE. Are there other DRM that affect ePub books for Kobo?

I have Adobe Digital Editions and can save books on my Kobo Touch no problem, as well, I can drop books onto my grandmother's Kobo, so this is great.  My problem is that Adobe Digital Editions does not recognize the Kobo Vox (it doesn't show up as an option on the left hand side to ADE). So I d/l Caliber and copied all of my ebooks over.  Caliber recognized the Vox no problem, but when I sent the books to the ereader, there was a problem with the import and none of the books will open. It says that they are DRM protected. Please help...

I have purchased 12 books from the Kobo store, for my Kobo Vox and I can't transfer them from my PC to the Kobo Vox reader. ADE does not recognize Kobo Vox. There is no icon to drop these books into.
When I purchase a title from my Kobo Vox it is saved with no problem. I will continue to purchase items this way but I really want the titles that I have already paid for and can't  access.

Kobo says that Kobo Vox books are not compatible with ADE, thereby rendering all my formerly filed ebooks in my ADE library useless. BEWARE!!!

Don't worry about it. As Kobo official site says, ADE supports all Kobo books. So your books might not be the ADE-supported version.

Just take the following steps.
1. Sign in at Kobo’s official site.
2. Click “MY LIBRARY” on the top navigation bar and you will find all your purchased Kobo books.
3.Click “ADOBE DRM EPUB” on the right side of your book and an ACSM file will be downloaded to your computer.
4. Drag the ACSM file to ADE. The EPUB book will be downloaded to your computer during this process, and make sure you can read it on ADE.
