    Indesign Server CC Trial issues

    AdobePete Community Member

      The installation instructions states

       

      You need to download Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition (APTEE) for using the InDesign Server trial

       

      The download link only refers to CS6, CS5.5 & CS5 not CC

      Since there is no Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition for CC I decided just to install and run the trial.

       

      However I got the Adobe InDesign Server is not properly licensed and will now quit message.

      According to the CC Release notes it says:

       

      InDesign CC Server needs to be activated before it can be used. If the computer is online, activation is done automatically when you install. You need to provide your Adobe ID, and serial number when prompted by the installer. Unless the software is activated, you'll see an error, "Adobe InDesign Server’ is not properly licensed and will now quit."

       

      My computer was online yet the it seems it didn't perfom the automatic activation as it suggests. When I entered my AdobeID credentials I did not get any errors saying it could not connect online.

       

      So I had to do something and decided to use the Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition for CS6.

      This allowed me to get pass the licensing issue.

       

      The next problem was I was getting DDE Server Window:InDesignServer.exe System Error popup. Telling me The program can't start because svml_dispmd.dll is missing from your computer.

      So after browsing the net to see where I can get this missing svml_dispmd.dll I found this post http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/285859

      and decided to install what it suggested.

      I still got the missing dll error so I copied it from C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared Libraries\redist\intel64\compiler into C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC Server x64

       

      Now it just sits there and hangs at the same spot

      11/28/13 08:09:08 INFO  [javascript] Executing File: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC Server x64\Scripts\converturltohyperlink\ConvertURLToHyperlinkMenuItem.jsxbin

       

      What the heck is going on here?

       

       

      I have installed Indesign Server CC on another machine and although I did not get the missing dll problem it still however hangs at the same spot mentioned above.

      Could someone from Adobe please help. The already I'm losing days with this trial and I will have little days left to test this product.
