How to open B&N social DRM books with ADE?

I've read posts here from trustworthy members indicating that it is possible to open B&N social DRM-encumbered ebooks with ADE. I've just tried it myself with no luck. I downloaded a DRMed epub directly from the B&N web site, then tried opening it with ADE, finally just dragging the file over into the ADE window. I get a "Document is licensed for a different user account". How do I link my B&N DRMed books to ADE so I can open them there?

Are you using ADE 2.0? B&N DRM support was added in the 2.0 version.

Ah, that was it. I hadn't realized my copy of ADE was so old. Upgraded to the latest and all is well. Thanks, Geertm!

 Be advised the 2.0 is hella buggy and you may have trouble with opening ADEPT books in that version.
