since I installed the CC version of InDesign, the .indd files in my system are not associated with InDesign anymore. The weird thing is that even though I select Open With and navigate to the InDesign.exe, Windows does NOT accept the program into the list of available programs. I simply cannot assign the file type to InDesign CC.
Did you uninstall a prvious version after installing CC? That's a classic symptom. It could also mean that the install of CC is not intact.
I did. How can I fix it?
Reinstall CC. That should restore the association and the icon handler.
