book key error

Ok, so I've tried ineptpdf versions 1-5, and I downgraded to ADE v1.71, and I'm still getting the book key error. I bought the ebook from lulu, and it's pdf v1.6.

One other slightly complicating problem is that based on someone's advice somewhere on here in a way earlier post, I deleted a registry key having to do with adobe. Now when I try to run the ineptkey, it comes up with this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users...ineptkey.py", line 198, in main
retrieve_key(keypath)
File "C:\Users...\ineptkey.py", line 159, in retrieve_key
type = winreg.QueryValueEx(regkey, None)[0]
WindowsError: [Error 2]

The system cannot find the file specified

I had already ran it before that though, so I've been using the older adeptkey file when I'm trying to decrypt. Which is from before I downgraded ADE. Should that matter? If so, anyone know how to fix the registry?

Thanks so much for all your work on this. I bough the book quickly without reading the fine print and I was shocked to find out it wouldn't display on my kindle. I thought we were out of the stone age with this DRM nonsense. The book industry should get its act together very soon on this stuff or they're going to pay with huge piracy losses.

If you have upgraded to 1.7.2 and it had already changed your registry keys you've got a problem. You either should have saved the old registry (so hop on your time machine ) or you have to delete the registry entries relevant to ADE and reinstall ADE 1.7.1 and activate again (if possible).

HELP ME

I downloaded an ebook from ebooks.com, i cannot remove its protection.
I did everything. First, i installed ADE 1.7.2, downloaded the ebook. Later i installed ADE1.7.1085.
I tried with the script ineptpdfv5.pyw but i get somekind of error "Error: Dict requiered: 1215"
I don't understand... later, i tried with ineptpdfv2.pyw and I get the error "error decrypting book session key", I don't understand, it's unfair, I paid for the ebook I could do everything I want with it.

Please help me, i'm tired and desperate.

You have to uninstall 1.7.2 - remove registry entries, install 1.7.1 and download it with this version (not with 1.7.2) then it should work ...

Btw. stop wining about it ... delayed gratification is the best of all.

If you have updated to 1.7.2, and the key doesn't work anymore, do this. It has worked for many people.

Quote:
Just uninstall the new version, delete the ADEPT folder in the Registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Adobe>ADEPT

Delete the My Digital Editions folder in My Documents. Reboot computer. Re-install the old version provided in the link below. Reactivate ADE.

Run the Ineptkey again to obtain the Adeptkey.der.

Then you should be good to go. I even tried the update again, and I was still able to remove DRM.

I'm able to decrypt the file, but it's corrupted, which version of the script should I use?
Can someone send me that version by PM?

Thanks.

Amazing! I can now read the book I paid for on my kindle. Thanks for the help! I can't believe how amazing it is that I now have access to my own content. Thanks for nothing adobe!

I have inept working with my library with Digital Editions under Mac OS X Snow Leopard, thank you for your efforts. Some of the files seem to have an extra layer of compression on them; after successfully decrypting them they can't be opened with Preview, or some of them can be opened but are garbled. Any thoughts on what might be going on?

If ineptkey 4.3 works for all win versions (and it looks that way) adeptkey.der ist better (the scripts are also compatible to the mac ineptkey). The adeptkey4.der tools are trying all available keys so they are more error prone (if adobe changes the scheme again).

I recommend: Go with the newest (adeptkey.der) scripts and if they doesn't work for you report and fall back to the 'old ones'.

The script has problems with a pdf 1.5+ feature (xrefstreamdirectores) - the problem is known and would like to be fixed (but no pdf format expert has volunteered to share his/her wisdom yet).
