'HttpCreateHttpHandle failed ...' -- Adobe Digital Editions

Post by calicoharry » Sat Dec 19, 2015 10:03 am

Adobe Ditigital Editions 4 installed with wine 1.7 (Ubuntu repo.).

Possibly the conclusion is that some (library issued) ePub books need to access a MS API when being read that has only been implemented as a stub.

All of the books I have downloaded from the library so far have opened fine accept one, an ePub, I can check it out fine and it downloads without any problems, however when attempting to open / read the book, the following error results:

HttpCreateHttpHandle failed with 120

Googling the error it looks as though there is only a stub in place for this function - it needs to be implemented.

Where to go from here?

Thanks in advance.

There's already a bug report for another app affected by the missing function: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38245. You should add a comment to it that ADE 4 is also affected, and add a link in the AppDB entry to the bug report.

FYI, we now have WineHQ packages for Ubuntu; you should use those. viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25767

There is a note in one of the test results[1]:
What does not

Reading EPUB v3 eBooks (perhaps because of the old IE version) with ADE
Have duly added a comment to the bug report - however:
There is a long road before this starts working. All httpapi functions are not implemented currently.
