Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunally this didn't solve my problem.
I just created an another. After removing the registry
key I got the dialog asking for the license key. Upon entering this I
get an error message: "You have run out of registrations for this
document". Meaning I have already used my registration so whay don't I
buy one more....

Well after spending an evening on the phone talking to various people
at Fatbrain I got a new license key (THANKS JAI) but it still didn't
work. No I got the same error as before: "An error occurred while
preparing to display this eMatter...." So back to the phone. After a
while we found out that I'm using the Swedish version of Acrobat 4.0
and eMatter don't work with any version except the American.

After downloading the american version and unstalling the swedish and
installing the american acrobat. Yeee an behold! Everything works!!!
