What version of InDesign? What operating system? What does it mean that "it doesn't work"? What exactly is the error message you receive?
Same situation with InDesign.
Win7 Pro x64 SP1. Fresh instalation CS6 with latest update.
ID loading all stuff, show main window ...and show up Windows7 alert that program was crashed.
But if I run ID with admin permission, everything is OK.
I would add that the troubleshoot report Windows7 says that the problem is in the file MSVCR100.dll (ver 10.0.40219.325).
Same problem I have with Adobe Encore.
Adobe InDesign downloaded from Adobe Creative Cloud, It´s supposed last
version of CS6. S.O. Windows 7
When I try open in a non admin session Windows shows a message: Windows has
closed correctly this program by an error

This is probably a permissions problem (and for what it's worth, I don't think ID CS6 runs here in a restricted account, either, but I've never chased it down). Here's a list of required permissions for CS3 on Win7 x 64: Windows Permissions
I would expect similar requirements for other versions so you can probably use that as a guide.
And it's not permission problem. It's problem with TEMP folder.
I have system on SSD, and change my system TEMP and TMP folder to larger HDD.
Windows and another programs know that temp folders are in another place, but not CS6.
I had many errors, crashes etc. in CS6 apllication. Now is gone!
How to do it? Answer post 75:
THX to tomaugerdotcom
Thank a lot, Greg!
But finally, I don't know where is the exact place to change for InDesign. I find a lot of places to change!
The post of tomaugerdotcom is good, but it isn't clear why don't works InDesign out of admin session. Now is the only one Adobe app that don't works to me.
Now, I use InDesign as admin until to correct the bug. I imagine that Adobe should take care of the problem and to fix it.
I didn't fix the problem yet!
I had tried to give a admin permission to my account of Windows 7. Then the problem is still yet. So, I have desactivated and uninstalled InDesing CS6. I have restarted one new installation from my account in Windows 7. The problem is the same, but the situation is worst, now I must to change of session because InDesign CS6 don't start from my session not even as administrator.
I don't understand well this situation. Why I can't use a software correctly that I'm paying every month?
I would like to find a reasonable solution.
Could you help me?
I'm afraid I've told you everything I know.
It sounds like you uninstalled and then reinstalled from a retictrected account, and now ID won't run, even choosing Run AS administrator? Is that right? If so, I would say you should uninstall again, run the clean tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall from the Administrator account.
Thank a lot, Peter!
In the end I have open another new administrator account and from there all is well. But I keep thinking that It's a problem of Adobe InDesgin to resolve. Why to use always an admin account if windows allows to all other software works safely in one normal user account? Now the users of InDesign are less safe and more exposed to viruses, because they are working in an admin account.
Of course, I repeat, thank a lot for your quickly and precise answer.
