There is very little chance that version of InDesign will install on an Intel Mac but with 10.6.8 it’s not completely out of the question.
You cannot use it for an upgrade and there’s practically zero chance of finding a legit copy of anything but CS6 at this point.
Thank you, Bob. Just finished a verrryyy lengthy chat with a nice Adobe rep, who gave me some slightly different info, and, sadly, about the same conclusion.
I was told I can't install the ID 2.0 on anything past a G5.
I might qualify for an upgrade to CS4 (ID 6.0) but I'd need help from Adobe for the authorization. However, that supposedly runs on OS 10.4.11–10.5.4 only.
He said I can't use CS 6 because it requires OS 10.7 and up. So I could take a chance on CS 4 and if that didn't work, give up and swear off Adobe. (I was raised on Quark) Or look for a later full version of Indesign -- if that was ever even offered.
As far as finding old software, I'm sitting with an unopened retail copy that's 7 years old. If it were still usefiul, I believe it would be legal to re-sell.
I've had success buying authentic old stock software more than once. I ask for pictures of holograms, etc. (I'm still using Appleworks and until I couldn't run system 9, i wouldn't give up Claris Emailer).
Thanks very much for the advice!
CS6 runs on 10.6 and as I said, you will be harddpressed to buy any earlier
version through a legitimate channel.
