Which .dll contains the Splash Screen?

Jul 30, 2012 6:57 PM

Hey gang,

 

Do any of you know which .dll file within Adobe InDesign CS6 contains the startup splash png image file?

 

Best,

    Didn't they dump the splash screen in CS6?

    Is it supposed to look like this? For a moment(*) I thought my system had crashed

     

    This image is not anywhere found as a separate file, so yeah, I guess that probably would make it an alpha transparent PNG somewhere inside a library.

     

    Why'd you wanna know? You want to change it or something? Tinkering with program code is a bad idea in general.

     

    idstartup.png

     

    (*) Actually, for several minutes, while IDCS6 was churning through its initializing startup routine and loading 457MB for 761 items. (Per Finder Info -- hopefully not all of it.)

    You mean this one?

     

    Never mind, looks like it's completely different in CS6.

    If you manage to do that, please share it! the new splash screen is the ugliest thing i'we seen in ages!! (All the CS6 splash screens are horrible, but the indesign one takes the cake)

    Michael,

     

    Almost all graphical UI elements are inside idrc_PNG* folders with IDRC extension.

    Basically, they are regular PNGs with changed extension.

    Splash screen can be found here: \Adobe InDesign CS6\(InDesign Resources)\idrc_PNGA\294.idrc

    Simply change IDRC to PNG and you will be able to load it in Photoshop.

     

    Hope that helps.

    And for all the Mac users, go to:

     

    Applications/Adobe InDesign CS6/Adobe InDesign CS6.app

     

    Open the package of the app.

    The whole path is:

     

    Applications/Adobe InDesign CS6/Adobe InDesign CS6.app/Contents/Resources/idrc_PNGA/294.idrc

    @Michael – it is not 1051.idrc, but 294.idrc…

     

    located at:

     

    Applications/Adobe InDesign CS6/Adobe InDesign CS6.app/Contents/Resources/idrc_PNGA/

    this is the exact path to the purple image that loads when you open IDCS6, well it is on my mac.

     

    Macintosh HD:Applications:Adobe InDesign CS6:Adobe InDesign CS6.app:Contents:Resources:idrc_PNGA:294.idrc

     

     

    oops, should have noted the answer was already given

    Do you happen to know where these files are located for Photoshop CS6? The directory structure in Resources is totally different from InDesign :-(
