New computer, Windows 8 64-bit, fresh install of Adobe CC. Installed InDesign CC, tried opening my CS6 book project (has about 19 indd documents in it) and CRASH "Adobe InDesign CC has stopped working". No reports or logs that I can see. I was working with these files with InDesign CS6 on another machine yesterday.
Been through enough InDesign updates to know that this is definitely not normal.
Any help here? I can't work until this is sorted out.
Try exporting each of the individual files to .idml from CS6, open those in CC and save as new files (back up the old ones, or pick new file names so you don't overwrite what you have), then create a new Book project in CS6 and add the new files.
Thank you gentlemen, the .idml file trick did the job. It still crashed once when I was adding it to the book project, but hasn't crashed since adding all of them in. I've kept a strict SVN subversion of my files and have back ups of back ups, so everything is safe.
I tried this advice and it is still not helping me. I saved my cs6 files as .idml and it's still crashing like crazy whenever I open. I tried trashing my preferences, still does not help.
HELP ME, my indesign CC is useless.
