Downloading the Adobe Digital Editions software
You need to install Adobe Digital Editions if you want to transfer ebooks protected by Adobe DRM (.acsm) to e-readers form brands other than Vivlio, or to applications other than those offered by our partners.
You do not need to download Adobe Digital Editions to read on your computer, read on a Vivlio e-
reader, or read on an application from one of our partners.
To download the software, go to the Adobe Digital Editions page on the Adobe website.
Click on “Save file”, then double-click on the downloaded file “ADE_4.0_Installer.exe” if you are on
Windows or on the file “ADE_4.0_Installer.dmg” if you are on Mac OS. Allow the program to make
changes on your computer if you are asked for it to do so.
