InDesign CS6 Crashes on Launch after Time Machine Backup

After restoring my machine from a Time Machine backup, absolutely everything works as it did before except InDesign.


I've already:

  • Trashed preferences and caches
  • Uninstalled/reinstalled
  • Disk utility
  • Restarted computer several times
  • Tried a guest/new user account; InDesign actually works there fine.


Crash log:


Photoshop / Illustrator / Acrobat all work. InDesign is the only one that crashes.

    Start by running the 8.0.1 update, and then trash the additonal files in John's list at Adobe Forums: InDesign crashes at startup

    Seems likely that it's in the user library if it works for another account, so you might want to rename the Adobe InDesign folders in ~/library/preferences and ~/library/caches.


    And did you check the crash report afte the update to be sure it is the same?
