Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 installer broken (4.5.8) #1092

Current winetricks installer for Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 is broken. Installer says that it's already been started and you can retry it indefinitely.

Downloading and installing older version installer works fine (tried with 4.5.0 installer from filehippo). Current version at Adobe download site is 4.5.8.

Tried with 32 bit prefix.

I am having the same issue, running on Fedora 29 which has wine 3.20 and winetricks 20180603 (which I guess is a bit out of date). I briefly looked through the commits since that release and didn't see anything related. But I will see if I can try with a slightly older version.

The adobe_diged setup (instead of adobe_diged4) does still work well, though.

The problem is That bug lists a workaround (extract the installer rather than run it), which seems to work.

I added the workaround here:

Looking upstream, looks like the app may have other issues that need to be fixed there (e.g., crashing when downloading a book or working with encrypted files).
