    CS4, ERROR 5, InDesign, Mac OSX 10.9.3 Fix?


      I apologize if this was posted before. I don't have time (busy mom) to read a thousand forums, 99% of which have no resolution. Just wonder if anyone can fix the issue: ERROR 5, all other programs will open except InDesign.

      Hard drive was wiped clean. Reinstalled CS4 and now this one won't open.

      Live chat was no help, matter of fact he sent me to a link that basically trashed Adobe support techs and said they still had no answer after holding for hours. Pretty ironic.


      I'm sure this must be simple. Thank you so much for any help in advance.

          CS4 is not supported on OS 10.9.x, so you're mostly on your own. If that's an installer error rather than a document error, I recall a thread that discussed it a year or two ago. I think Matthew Laun had an actual answer at the time, though it may not be relevant in the new OS. Google searches work better than the forum search, so look for InDesign "error code 5" Laun.
