How can I reinstall licensing recovery for InDesign 4.0 on OS LION?

Aug 5, 2011 1:52 PM

Dear Technical Geeks:


Re: InDesign 4.0...I know how to reactivate with Snow Leapard OS 10, but nothing seems to work now that I have gone to OS 10 Lion. There is a "Licensing issue" that prevents me from launching INDesign 4.0 (and throwing away the Flexnet folder in the Preferences folder does not solve it did when I had Snow Leapard. I downloaded the License Recovery software, but it doesn't appear to work in the new OS Lion environment.


Any suggestions?


Thanks, (Ben Ruiz)

    Good day Ben,


    This is the forum for SendNow, a service for file sharing that's part of the family.  I would suggest you post your question over in the InDesign General forum.

    I believe InDesign 4.0 would be InDesign CS2. That shipped in May 2005.


    I think that would be too old to run under Lion. InDesign CS2, I believe, was designed to run on PowerPC processors. You could use Rosetta under Snow Leopard (10.6) to run it, but Rosetta was killed with Lion (10.7).
