    Thanks for your investigations!
    Your hint about the packaging seems to be the point. I unzipped the pubcoder v.2 generated epub file and repackaged it with "epub Packager" (v. 1.4, not sure, what's the latest version) and this epub works fine with ADE 4.5 without any errors. The PK Header though definitely looks different in the version generated with epub Packager compared to the output with Pubcoder 2.x. I remember from "older days" that the PK Zip header string in epubs had to follow a certain standard and probably ADE is still relying on this.
    Best Regards

    pubcoder 2.0.2 on OS X 10.11.1
    Adobe Digital Editions 4.5

    Two issues found with ADE:

    1) pubcoder preferences -> ePub3
    Notice: Adobe Digital Editions 4.0 is not installed
    (seems to ignore the newer version 4.5 ?)

    2) Trying to insert an eBook generated with latest pubcoder version 2.0.2 into the ADE library results in an error message (rough translation):
    document cannot be inserted
    errors were found in this medium
    (no errors during publishing process within pubcoder, output works fine with iBooks.
    Unfortunately no more detailed messages from within ADE available. If necessary I can forward you a simple test to reproduce this issue)
