After moving to a new computer (Mac 8 GB, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5, OS X 10.8.5), my CS4 (InDesign 6.0.6) refuses to export to PDF. At export of any .indd file to PDF, I get a "PDF Library failed to initialize".
I have no problems opening files, editing files, or exporting them as JPG.
A reinstallation of CS4 from DVDs didn't help. Googling for the error message pointed me to another Forum thread, where MacKeeper was the culprit, and files couldn't even be opened. No, MacKeeper hasn't ever been even contemplated for my laptop, and yes, I can open .indd files.
As you can probably imagine, I would appreciate any help!
1. I first migrated it. At first, it refused to even start. So my re-installation from DVD was based on an earlier, non-working migrated version.
2. No, I did not uninstall it in between. Is trying it worth the effort? This time I didn't want to invest just like that, as the Mac doesn't have a DVD station and borrowing a DVD from someone else does cost some karma points.
3. I wouldn't know how to check that compatibility. But it would indeed be sad if CS4 (which is less than four years old) wouldn't work on my new Mac with 10.8.5).
Bob: Now that *is* sad indeed! Through an unexpected mercy shown by providence, I did get InDesign CS4 to work after an uninstall and a reinstall on OS X 10.8.5. But I wonder how Adobe would have helped me upgrade the CS4 to CS5, given that I had only needed it because I migrated to a new Mac, where CS4 wasn't supported (through no fault of Adobe's).
Your comment implies that Apple regards CS4 as paleolithic; "hey, who expects any user to want to use unupgraded software after nearly four years - an eternity in IT!". (End of sarcasm).
