    For Peter Spier, Indesign crashing on launch, here's the report


      Hi Peter, Here's the report on the Indesign Crash. It crashes right at launch, starts to load and then shows the crash report. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it a couple of times. Reloaded Suitcase Fusion, and reloaded all my fonts. Run my cleaning software several times. Have been seaching the discussion board for solutions, and have tried all that I have found, still crashing on launch. I have two big jobs to start, and I'm very frustrated. Will upgrading to CS 6 resolve the problem. Seems to be from what I have read that OSX 10.7.5. and Indesign 5.5 are no longer compatible. Please help if you can.

          I've trimmed the crash report to the important info. In future it will help if you post these reposts someplace like pastebin.com and give us a link.


          First, you need to install the InDesign 7.5.3 patch and try again, but I think it's likely to continue to crash. It looks to me like a problem with the Extensis Suitacse auto-activation plugin, which probably also needs to be updated.

            Hi Peter,

              Please excuse my diminished mental capacity... I have the flu, uuuugh. I pasted the report into pastebin.com but could not figure out how to get a link to you. Anyway, just wanted to let you know, I downloaded the patch for InDesign that you recommended, it continued to crash, so I purchased the upgrade for Suitcase, went from ver 3 to ver 5. And now InDesign is launching with no problems... Hopefully that will continue.

              Just wanted to tell you THANK YOU for your advice and wisdom... it seems this stuff always goes wacky when you have a big job,

            Anyway Thanks Again,
