This is a new install of CS4 on a new workstation running Windows 7 32bit. All other parts of CS4 work ok.
Thank you so much for this link. I tried installing it but it seems that I already have the patch installed.
I am having a problem launching both InDesign and Illustrator for CS4 but get the error message below when I launch the program.
Do you have any suggestions on this please?
I am using Win7 32bit. I have not installed Adobe Acrobat or Photoshop from CS4 as I am using that from the Adobe eLearning Suite 2.5
Would appreciate any help if you have the time.
Thanks again Peter
I tried both options but unfortunately the problem still persists. I am unable to get into ID – it crashes while launching.
Do you have any suggestions that I can explore – Please let me know.
Make sure you empty the InDesign Recovery folder in your user profile, the try launching again, just to be sure you don't have corrupt recovery data casuing an issue. If it still crashes, it could be a font problem, so see Troubleshoot font problems | Windows
Thx again. That also doesn’t seem to have resolved the issue. Please note that this is a new re-install. I didn’t use ID much on my previous installs but will need to in my new role. So I wanted to spend the weekend learning more about it through the Tutorials.
· Could the eLEarning Suite 2.5 be in conflict?
o I am using Cp, Acrobat and Ps from the eLearning Suite.
· I looked at the other programs installed from CS4:
o FW, DW, and Fl are working.
o Ai – gives me the following message: “Error Loading plugins. ScriptingSupport.aip” Once Ai is launched it display the message “Adobe has detected that the application Ai CS4 has unexpectedly quit.”
o ID – crashes with the error message : “Adobe InDesign has stopped working”
I don't think the other programs are an issue. At this point maybe you should uninstall, run the cleaner tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall.
Thx again. I followed your previous suggestions. I still have the same issues as per previous posting.
I also have the latest patch installed as you suggested as well as deleted the contents of the Recovery folder.
Hope you have another suggestion.
Does it work if you create and log into a new user account?
Do you use a font manager? Any other third-party plugins?
Does it work if you run MSConfig and turn off all non-essential startup programs, including virus and malware scanners, itunes, messengers, and browser toolbars/helpers?
· I actually tried the alternate user option yesterday (used the Administrator user account even though my user is also an Administrator), that didn’t work.
· I don’t use a font manager nor do I have any third party plugins.
· I disabled all programs at start-up – restarted the PC and that also didn’t help.
Hoping you still have some options in your toolbox….can you suggest anything else?
Is there a way to get Adobe involved in this?
Thanking you once again for your support
Adobe no longer offers free support for CS4 -- they send you here, or you can pay.
I'm out of ideas at the moment, though the new user test should be done with a brand new, never before existed account.
I'm afraid I don't have any other new ideas. I know other users have encountered problems using CS4 on Win7, though it seems to be fine here. I guess maybe you could try uninstalling, running the clean tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) then logging in on the system Administrator account, run MSconfig to temporarily turn off all non-essential startups and services, like anti-virus, iTunes, instant messengers, browser helpers and toolbars and so forth, then reinstall. Run MSconfig again after to restore normal startup.
