When you first use the Cloud App on your Windows-based PC, you will be prompted to activate your Cloud Libraryaccount with an Adobe ID after you log in.
If you will be using both Cloud Library eBooks and OverDrive: You must have both the Cloud Library app and Adobe Digital Editions installed on your computer. Any eBooks you download in Cloud Library will redirect to Adobe Digital Editions. When you authorize the 3M app, do not use the recommended instructions to “automatically generate an ID.” Instead, choose “explicitly provide an Adobe ID”, and enter the same ID that you have used for Adobe Digital Editions. Some computers may recognize your ID automatically, and you can simply click to activate the detected ID.
If you will only be using Cloud LibraryeBooks without OverDrive: When you log in to Cloud Library, choose the recommended option to “automatically generate an ID.” Note that if you have used OverDrive in the past, Adobe Digital Editions must be uninstalled from your computer before installing the 3M app in order for it to function properly.
