Try moving one of the old files to a local harddrive and opening from there.
If you still have CS2 available, open a file and export to INX. Open the INX in CS6.
@Bob – I had some issues open up INX files or even IDML files from older InDesign versions. Cannot test, if INX from CS2 will move page objects around like my tests with CS4 showed with a specific constellation of master pages applied.
Here an example showing the pages (no error) in InDesign CS4:
Here the pages out of an INX from CS4 opened in CS6:
Maybe you could build a test case and look for yourself.
Slimply opening the InDesign CS4 files in CS6 did NOT show the error.
Tried both of your suggestions:
Opening from the hard drive and it still stalled up....
And we plugged in one of the old computers with cs2, and strangely those files loaded slow in cs2 now as well....\
so.. the problem must be with some of the fonts and pics linked back to files on the network I guess??? I don't know, this is so frustrating! (but thanks for your help!)
turns out it was a networking issue with how inDesign connects to our terastation, we had an IT guy finally figure it out/fix it for us. Thanks for your help Bob
