  1. I found the Inept PDF Decrypter 8.4.50 script but i get an error at the final Decrypting stage. Error: error decrypting book session key

    Is it because the book wasn’t purchased on my computer? Do i have to do all of this from the computer where the Adobe Digital Edition file was downloaded?

  2. THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR WORK AND HELPING PPLZ LIKE US .. I PAY MY RESPECT AND LOVE TO ALL OF THEM .. WHO ARE INCLUDED IN THIS PROJECT I THINK THE WORD THANKS IS NOT ENOUGH TO APPRECIATE THEM ..
