InDesign CS5.5 crashes while applying Template to a page

Aug 13, 2012 1:04 PM



We installed Adobe InDesign CS5.5. on 10 Windows XP SP3 32-bit workstations with 2 GB RAM. On every computer, when a user tries to apply a template to a page in a .indd document, InDesign immediately shuts down without displaying any error messages. Using the Sysinternals Tools and Dr.Watson, I think that the faulty plugin might be this one: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5.5\Plug-Ins\Layout\PAGES PANEL.APLN.


Here's a part of the drwtsn32.log file (the full log can be made available upon request):


Une exception d'application s'est produite :

    Apply a template to a page? Do you mean apply a master page?




    Is CS5.5 fully patched to 7.5.3?




    And 2 GB RAM? That’s barely enough for the operating system.

    Yes, that's applying a master page.


    Personally I don't think this is RAM related.


    Again, is ID patched to 7.5.3? Hold down the Ctrl key and choose About InDesign from the Help menu to check.

    I would doubt that’s the cause if it’s happening on every machine and yes, that’s a master page that’s being applied.

    Sorry, you did say that earlier and I missed it.


    Happeing on multiple machines sounds like a software conflict with something else on all of those machines. Any third part plugins? A font manager?


    I don't think it will make a differnce, but have you tried trashing the prefs? see Replace Your Preferences

    THe best thing would be to rebuild from scratch. Next best option is to open the PM file and hope for the best, then export to.idml, open that and fix what needs fixing before resaving as an ID template.


    Given these are templates, I wouldn't spend time on second-best, myself.
