I worked on a new computer that I was going to change to for a couple of days, but it had a problem with the video chip and needed to be returned. So, I uninstalled my Adobe programs, went back to my old computer, reinstalled the programs and now am having some problems.
When I go to a file and double-click on it to open, I get an error message telling me that the file I'm trying to open is "not a valid Win32 application". If I go into InDesign, click on File->Open-> and search for the file and open it, there's no problem. Why won't my computer read the files from the desktop or folder and I'm forced to open them from the program?
This is the first time anything like this has happened.
Thanks for any help,
The install wasn't completely successful. Best bet is to uninstall again, then run the cleaner tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall. I recommend running MSConfig before the reinstall and turn off all non-essential startup programs and services. You can run it again after the install to resore normal startup.
Uninstall the InDesign application and run the Adobe CC cleaner:
Re-installed the application, right clicked on any of the InDesign files, headed over to properties > open with hit change and go where the executable is located on your machine.
For example C:\ programs and files>adobe> InDesign cs6 > selected the InDesign.exe hit ok.
Double click on any of the InDesign files - it should open with no errors.
