    Help! InDesign CC won't start on this darn PC!


      I work cross-platform - an iMac at work and a PC at home. Have never had any problems with all the CC programs until I updated my InDesign CC on the PC to the (2014) version. All of a sudden it will not get past the splash screen - just hangs and crashes with a "cannot open" comment. The following is from the crash details window:

      I've been looking through the forums; tried deleting my preferences (no good), uninstalling and reinstalling the older version (which used to work just fine) only to have the same thing keep happening. I'm a long-time Mac user and just started using the home PC for outside work. Anyone help me so I don't have to ask my software engineer husband who DETESTS Macs and all things Adobe? I'll never hear the end of it.


      PC is a Dell Inspirion 530 running Windows 7 Professional, 4GB RAM, 64-bit operating system.

      InDesign CC currently installed is v 9.0
