I've ventured through the forums for about and hour now and I have found no help! When I open my InDesign CS6, right after everything loads up and pops up the screen, it crashes. Though, when I run as an administrator, which is what I have been doing but I want to stay away from that now, it works perfectly fine for the most part. I've removed the Pref. files and I have reinstalled to no avail. Any help?
I've attempted to mess around with the permissions but that didn't seem to work either. I don't mind running the program as an admin, but I've realized that I can't drag and drop images from Windows Explorer due to these messed up permissions.
I am exactly not sure about your user account settings, however it seems to me the issue with Adobe PSL.
There has been a known issue with AdobePSL which cause InDesign. Photoshop and Bridge to crash just after few seconds of Welcome Screen.
The issue is AdobePSL tries to write the file (Ex:- PhotoshoptempXXXXXX) in the Temp folder and because of limited permission on Temp folder (on C:\) or intentionally keeping the User profile on the different drive, AdobePSL couldn't write the files to the Temp folder and cause InDesign, Photoshop and Bridge to crash.
There has been similar topic discussed on different thread like :-
Possible workaround :-
1) Run the application as the Administrator
2) Change the Temp folder location to default location
3) Check the permission on the temp folder.
The issue is fixed for the Photoshop and Bridge in there latest update :-
Unfortunately the update for InDesign is still awaited.
I have dropped you the e-mail to discuss the issue further and provide any useful suggestion/solution.
I contacted Eddie and found that he had the User profile on the Different drive (Z:\) which was the cause of the issue with AdobePSL as stated earlier.
Once I changed the enviormental variable and had the Temp folder back to Startup drive InDesign started to work fine.
