Currently (Fall 2015),  Baker & Taylor recommends checking something out through the Axis 360 website before using the Windows Desktop Reader to read an ebook on your computer.  

If you attempt to log in to the Windows Desktop Reader without having anything checked out you will get an error message ("BookVault: Invalid username and password") that your account isn't vaild. 

The Windows Desktop Reader is just an ebook reader and does not replace the Axis 360 website.  You must check ebooks out on via your Axis 360 account on the website.  Once you check out an ebook via the website, the ebook itself will be made available on your Windows Desktop Reader to download and read.
