Can't seem to find any info about this online, so I thought I'd ask here. I have InDesign CS5.5 and trying to open the program now, I get this message:
The ARTICLE.RPLN plug-in conflicts with ARTICLE.RPLN. Try removing one of the two plug-ins from the Plug-Ins folder and restart InDesign. Show this alert again? Yes/No.
(Article.rpln is in the "Required" folder, not in "Plug-Ins", btw alert.)
If I press either option (Y/N), the dialogue just comes back straight away in a sort of infinite loop until I end task on InDesign.exe in Task Manager.
Renaming the file: dialogue saying the file is not recognised as a valid plugin, followed by an alert saying it "cannot load InDesign.exe because it requires Article".
Moving the file from the folder: alert saying it "cannot load InDesign.exe because it requires Article".
I THIS this may only have started happening after I upgraded to Win 8.1 (from W8), but I'm not 100% because I don't use InDesign very often. It's a basic install from disc, I've not added any plug-ins to it.
Anything I can do, or do I just go looking for the install disc and check to see if there's an option on it to repair installation? (Control Panel only had Uninstall, I checked.)
Hope anyone can help.
P.S. On a side note, Photoshop also displayed a funny message on opening the other day, but I just clicked "OK" and then it opened like normal, and has run and opened like normal since. Dreamweaver seems to open fine.
If youl upgrade the OS in place, you should probably reinstall ID.
Given the ease of doing that I would agree. But Win 8 to 8.1 is more
like a service pack install than anything else.
I had zero issues installing it as an upgrade from the Windows Store.
We've had some issues with the computers in the house. A game stopped working (apparently, there's a compatibility issue with .NET framework 1.1 and Win 8.1), the antivirus program on both computers suddenly disappeared, Steam had to be verified to launch any games, and the printer needed reinstalling. I thought it was just like a normal SP too, but ... alas ...
Will go get the disc and try that. Fingers crossed!
EDIT: Yup, a reinstall of InDesign fixed it. Thanks!
