    Let us know if you find it.

     

    Seriously, Windows 7, and I presume Vista, seem to no longer do meaningful crash logging with Dr. Watson.

    As far as I know there is no crash logging at all, but ID will see fonts in any of three locations: The Windows fonts folder, the common Adobe fonts folder in the Coomon section of Program Files , and the private InDesign fonts folder in the InDesign Application Directory. Other Adobe apps will see fonts in Windows and the common folder, but not in the ID folder, though they may also have their own privae fonts folders that ID won't see.

    Windows 7 and Vista write minidump files. They are not human-readable and are hard to interpret without special tools.
