That's what have experienced a few days ago, but problem has been fixed now since I have downloaded Nook windows app.

I had Nook Study before. I found it a bit of a pain at times, but I may try it again. Or, I may try uninstalling Nook for PC and re-installing, and see if that fixes the problem.
Please update your test result!

I was trying to see what works and what doesn't and here's what I came up with.
  • NOOK for PC doesn't work anymore.
  • NOOK Study starts to sign me in works!
  • NOOK for Windows works for me.
  • NOOK for Android works on some of my devices.

The Windows app downloads books and I can remove the DRM using Calibre, BUT the key that the Calibre dialog retrieves no longer works. The NOOK Study key works, though, and even after the incomplete login, the instructions in the B&N readme from the Tools found the working key.

The Android thing appears to be related to the TLS 1.2 updates a while ago. Older devices don't work, newer ones do. Unfortunately, Android-x86, even the latest version, no longer works, so I had to use a legit Android phone. The Android app also uses the same key as NOOK Study and books can be retrieved from a rooted phone ("/data/data/bn.ereader/files/B&N Downloads/Books").

Edit: If you need a copy of NOOK Study, this link still works.

For Nook Study:


My trick to get Nook Study to log-on.
Quote:
You can try to trick Nook Study by
  • entering you account information
  • press enter
  • then while it is logging on close the program--do not let it time out
  • if it asks do you really want to close, closing will prevent syncing etc,etc,
  • click yes close.
  • Now reopen the program and see if you are logged in.
I would suggest trying this with Nook for PC. Remember Nook for PC uses your default browser for security and internet communications.

The problem with NOOK for PC is that the login is fine and the library syncs, but downloading any book with DRM fails. Samples and some indie books download, but any with DRM give a "Download: 2157" error.

This is not good on Monday I tested Nook for PC ono my windows10 tablet it worked, could download books both drm and drm free plus do all functions. Today I can no longer download drm books, but all functions still work.

Nook Study on my Linux machine under wine stills downloads all books drm and drm free.

Thank goodness I downloaded all my books when we first started having problems with the download links on their website. This sounds like a mess! And as someone still on a Window 7 computer, I couldn't install the app.

I don't remember. But from memory, if you install the Alf plug-ins to Calibre it will find the key.

That used to be true, but the plugin now retrieves a different key. The instructions for manually getting the key from NOOK Study were also removed from the readme a few versions ago.

Here's a link to an old version of the readme at github with the NOOK Study instructions:
DeDRM_calibre_plugin/DeDRM_plugin/DeDRM_Barnes and Noble Key_Help.htm from Tools v6.2.0.

The instructions you want start with "There is a work-around."

A long time ago Nook Study had trouble connecting. I know there's a work around, but I installed the B&N Windows 10 app and that works, so I've never bothered.
