Run the 7.0.4 updater and see if that helps...
I appreciate your suggestion but I'm still getting the same error message starting InDesign..
But after running 7.0.4 updater, and then updating the programs again, I got the following messages:
Adobe Extension Manager CS5 5.0 Update There was an error downloading this update. Please quit and try again later. Error Code: U43M1D207
Adobe Illustrator CS5 15.0.2 Update There was an error downloading this update. Please quit and try again later. Error Code: U43M1D207
I don't know if this is a new error or if it is related to the Hyperlinks plug-in.
I think you need to download an update for extension manager (I recall this happening to me), then you should be able to get the ID and Illustrator updates.
Thanks for the idea.
I installed the update for the Extension Manager but again there was no change.
The problem was erased by not only uninstalling the suite but also deleting the InDesign preference folders in %USERPROFILE%\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\ and %USERPROFILE%\\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\
Then reboot, reinstall (reentered license key), and update the suite again.
It appears to be working fine.
I still don't know what the problem was.
