Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify, it was the latest (1.7.2) release and yes, it was a "Run as" prompt. Unfortunately, regardless of which option I chose (I tried both "Run as\Admin" and "Run as\Current User" (also an Administrator account) I get an ADE Setup error message. With current user, it's "This installer required administrative access, please try again" and with Administrator it's "Unable to elevate to administrative rights, error 6". I've never seen either message before.

Windows should prompt you for administrative access rather than outright denying it. One thing that I can suggest doing is right clicking on the ADE installer icon and selecting "run as administrator".

At any rate, there are two different approaches to reading ebooks from different vendors on the Vox. One is to use Calibre and convert everything to ePub. The other is to install 3rd party reader software (e.g. it is possible to install Adobe Reader and Amazon Kindle alongside Kobo).
