    updating internal links crashes IDS

    curela Level 1



      The relevant flow is that a indd document is passed to the Indesign Server where I have to try and update outdated links before exporting to PDF.


      This in Windows (7, server, doesn't matter)


      For each link in the document, I am trying to do this (javascript)


      if (link.status == LinkStatus.linkOutOfDate) {






            app.consoleout("Error trying to update links ...");






      The indesign client is able to update the links fine.

      Problem is if the links are internal, meaning link.linkType is "type Internal Linked Story" or "type Internal Linked Object", the script above crashes the indesign server instance with the following.



      Faulting application name: InDesignServer.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51acf1d4

      Faulting module name: GENERIC PAGE ITEM.RPLN, version:, time stamp: 0x51acf472

      Am I doing something wrong with the link.update? It works fine for external links.
