Thanks for replying... I have just used a Firewire cable and Migration Assistant, and everything else seems to be OK (ie Photoshop, Illustrator etc.) but InDesign will not open!!
"InDesign will not open!!" doesn't tell us anything at all.
Why won't it open? are there any warnings? Are there any clues on your end at all?
System requirements come with the package - you should be able to use that http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/system-requirements-indesign.html
As you're migrating the software things may not have gone smoothly - you should do a clean uninstall and reinstall - you will need your software key.

Adobe apps, and InDesign in particular, are not amenable to migration. Uninstall and reinstall and all should be fine.
The InDesign icon pulsates, the maroon installing plug-ins and initialising box appears, then just disappears then an "InDesign quite unexpectedly" error message appears.
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the iMac was running OS X Version 10.6.8???
Many thanks... will have to wait till I return home to access the original software to reload or can I download?
I think you can still get the CS5 installer from this link: Download Adobe CS5 Free Trials – All Direct Links without Akamai | ProDesignTools
You must read and follow the directions on the page EXACTLY for the links to work. Don't just jump to the links.
There's no difference between trial and regular -- just enter your serial number (which you can get from from your account at the Adobe store if you registered).
