    DDE Server Window Error Exiting InDesign 7.5.1 (CS 5.5)


      I just installed CS 5.5 on an XP SP3 PC.  We previously used CS2.  I had the user open files created under CS2 InDesign in the new CS 5.5 InDesign.  The files opened and displayed with no issues in InDesign.  However, when she exits InDesign she gets a DDE Server Windows error dialog box.


      DDE Server Window: InDesign.exe - Application Error

      The instruction at "0x#####b##" referenced memory at "0x###d#f##".  The memory could not be "read".


      I ran all updates for InDesign and it shows as version 7.5.1.


      I saw a post in the PhotoShop forums of the same type of DDE error if you open a file and exit without saving, but it does not matter if I save the file or do not save the file.  I still get the DDE error when exiting InDesign.


      Any ideas on how to resolve the error?
