The bad news is that Windows crash reports are pretty useless, so there's nothing there that really helps us.
Does ID itself open, or is it now crashing on launch? If it crashes on launch, find the InDesign Recovery folder (should be in your user profile under Local\Adobe\InDesign\7.0\<language>\Caches) and empty it.
Do you have a backup version? Will the file open as a copy (set inthe open dialog)? Will it open in a new user or a different machine?
You can try the script at http://forums.adobe.com/message/5073406#5073406 to export to .idml without opening the file...
You can try the recovery tool at INDDRecovery — a program for restoring corrupted InDesign documents
Thanks for responding Peter.
Yes, ID itself does open. It is only this one ID file that won't open. When I attempt to open the file, a recovery dialog box comes up and asks if I want to recover the file. I select yes but then get the message that InDesign has stopped working.
Unfortunately, I don't have a backup version of the file. I will try to open it again on another machine (that didn't work last night).
Let me try that and then see what happens. Again, thanks so much for your suggestions.
Another trick that *sometimes* works is when using the "Open" dialog, selecting "Open as Copy". No guarantees though.
File wouldn't open on a different machine either. Tried the suggestion by Jongware just now and got error message that the file is damaged (Error code: 4).
Searching online for possible fixes now. Is this an error that can be "fixed" with INDD Recovery or some other tool?
Thanks for the suggestions.
File wouldn't open as a copy either. I also ran the INDD Recovery program; new 'Restored' file was created but it won't open either - carries the Error code: 4 as does the first one.
Guess I have no choice but to recreate. I appreciate the feedback.
