"the objectmodel.dll plug-in conflicts with objectmodel.dll"

"the objectmodel.dll plug-in conflicts with objectmodel.dll"

 

I get the above error message when trying to launch ID CS 5.5 .  I searched my computer for the offending dll file which I found to be located in

CS4

CS5

CS5.5

and CS6

 

However I do not understand that a dll located in discrete locations could conflict with one another between different versions of ID running on the same OS.

 

I also renamed it to objectmodel.dll.old and then tried to launch ID CS 5.5 at which I got an undecipherable error message.  I then renamed the file back to its original name and now ID CS 5.5 won't launch at all.

 

Where did I go wrong?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Did ID ever work?

    I supect the CS5/5 has become corrupt, but in order to fix it I think you really should uninstall CS6 first, then uninstall CS5.5 and run the clean tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall in version order. Uninstalling an older version after installing a new one can have some bad effects, as can reinstalling an old version after a new one, hence the need to do both.

    Yeah, see Replace Your Preferences

     

    but don't hold your breath...

    It's not clear if you did the rename (and that's all it takes) for each version. Every version of ID sets up its own folders for the prefs.
