InDesign quits after network connection lost error

Sep 5, 2012 7:53 AM

Tags: #lost #crash #indesign #connection #network

InDesign all of a sudden is crashing with the following error:

 

"The network connection was lost for the file InDesign SavedData, or the file was modified by another process"

 

followed by:

 

Adobe InDesign is shutting down. A serious error was detected. Please restart InDesign to recover work in any unsaved InDesign documents." (button) "Return to Finder"

 

then:

 

"InDesign quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open application again. Click Report to see more detailed information and send a report to Apple."

 

Then I get the Adobe Crash Report.

 

Restarting InDesign gives the same results, both opening a file and opening the application directly.

 

I have trashed InDesign Preferences and tried throwing away the InDesign Recovery folder, but no change.

 

Specifics:

 

-InDesign CS5, ver 7.0.4.553

 

-iMac Core i7, OS 10.7.4

 

-I am not in a network environment—all InDesign documents are local.

 

-InDesign CS4 works okay.

 

Here is the the crash report:  http://pastebin.com/1ZvvSJCa

 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Cliff

    I tried all three solutions and InDesign still crashes with the same error messages.

    Your crash report indicates a protective shutdown:

     

    Thread 0 Crashed:: Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread
    0   PublicLib.dylib                    0x011a3fc7 ProtectiveShutdown::~ProtectiveShutdown() + 279
    

    protective

    That means you should open ~/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 7.0/en_us/InDesign Recovery/Protective Shutdown Log and see what it reports (you can also upload it to http://pastebin.com/) for more information.

     

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I need to get things working again as I have client projects pending.

    Quick tip is to create a new user account and see if the problem goes away.

    Did you try Trash, Replace, Reset, or Restore the application Preferences?

    Didn't you read the fine print when you signed up? You no longer get to have a life.

    Oh, hrmm; it's got lots of:

     

    Adobe InDesign Protective Shutdown Log

    Thu Sep  6 06:56:54 2012

     

    Lost network connection of open database

     

    Session started up at 6:56 AM on Thu, Sep 6, 2012

    Version: 7.0.4 - Build: 553

     

    No Error Info

     

    And, hrmm. We've sort of seen that before. But I don't think it means what it looks like it means...

     

    p.s.: Peter, I still have...a lot of catching up to do....

    I noticed a few Load Failed lines, but I don't know what that means...
