    InDesign CS5 crashes on opening in Mavericks

    Redand Level 1



      I migrated my User account to a brand new iMac this weekend with OS 10.9.2. All CS5 apps work fine except for InDesign. It always crashes after "Initializing plug-ins" stage. The last of many crash reports is at the end of this message. I've searched online and a lot of people have had similar problems put they haven't resolved the issue:


      1) I updated Java for OS X 2013-005. No change.


      2) I've tried dumping the InDesign Defaults & SavedData files as suggested, but this doesn't help either. Interestingly, the SavedData file was recreated but InDesign Defaults never gets replaced. I had the same issue with InDesign a couple of years ago when I upgrade the OS to 10.6 and this resolved the situation then.


      3) I've resolved any font conflicts.


      4) As my older iMac is sat next to this new one and it still has my original user account and had I upgraded the the OS to 10.9.2 in preperation of giving it to my partner, I decided to do a comparison. I opened InDesign to see if it crashed too. After a long time, it opened! It opens files and I can save. I've even copied the entire en_GB folder within Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign and used that on my new Mac, but this doesnt help. (By the way there is a Version 4.0 folder there as well as a Version 7.0. Could this cause issues?)


      So, does this point to an issue with the brand new iMac? It's a 27" iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 with 12GB preinstalled, so it has had 4GB added to the standard 8GB by the retailer (costco).


      I would appreciate any help resolving this issue. Thank You.
