I am having an issue in CS6 Indesign with teh ADOBE DESKTOP CONTENT VIEWER.
I try to preview a folio using the desktop viewer and nothing happens, it silently fails.
I have uninstalled Indesign CS6 (including preferences), Uninstalled adobe Air 3.3. Uninstalled the content viewer.
rebooted, reinstalled air rebooted, reinstalled Indesign CS6 rebooted...
After installing InDesign CS6, i choose Help > Updates and updated the DPS Desktop Tools
And it still doesn't work!
I think it may be to do with AIR rather than InDesign because it goes through the progressbars in InDesign and I have previously a BETA version of AIR that caused an issue else where, even though this is now uninstalled and the latest release of AIR is installed it still is failing to comunicate with AIR.
I also, based on another posts recomendation, installed earlier version of the tools, but this made no difference. I suspected it wouldnt as it installed to different version folders.
Its really frustrating as it works fine on a co-workers PC running 64bit WIndows 7

Many thanks Geoff
Finally It's working with me right now
I have spent the whole day working in this issue, I've did massive uninstallation for many adobe applications so really i don't know exactly how it's happened.
but I think the main step you should do when you uninstalling Adobe Air & Indesign you need also to go to this folder and remove the whole patches inside it.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe\AdobePatchFiles
And then go back to install AIR & restart & install indesign and DPS CS6 patch.
I hope it's work with you.
I can see, for such a long time many people are facing this issue (Desktop Content Viewer won't appear in InDesign CS6)

Guys please share your experience after performing the above.
sorry but this didnt work, adobecontent viewer is installed and runs if you browse to it, but it wont open from inDesign, or preview any folios.
The OS is WIN7 64bit, i wonder if its a Path to ACV issue, or a Air/indesign securtiy/permission problem.
i agree, we have other PCs win7 64bit without issue, i think likely the historical versions of AIr betas / security permissions, registry ghosts, all specific to my machine play a part, but equally some issue in the software also.
