Did you update InDesign CC or did you upgrade to InDesign CC 2014.1?
I've only subscribed to Adobe Creative Cloud for about 3 months now. Since the first installed, the program has been working until yesterday. I only upgraded it when it stopped working, hoping it would solve the problem, but it did not. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled today but the problem is the same. I do not know if the current version is 2014 or 2014.1. It only says 2014 Release.
Did ID crash before it stopped working, or did you close normally one day, and it wouldn't open the next time you tried?
If it crashed, open Windows Explorer and enable viewing of Hidden files and folders (Tools >Folder Options > View tab) then navigate to C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 10.0\<your language>\Caches and empty the InDesign Recovery folder.
ID did not crashed. I close it normally and then it did not work the next time. This is what exactly happened; I double clicked on my last saved file and I can see the application window appearing and the first error message was:
"Adobe InDesign automatic recovery failed the last time it tried to open the document "My Document.indd"
Do you want to recover "My Document.indd" again?
Click Yes to begin recovery.
Click No to delete recovery data for the documnet.
Click Cancel to postpone all document recovery until later.
I clicked on Yes first and the next error message as follows:
Adobe InDesign CC 2014 has stopped working.
A problem cause the program to stopped working correcty.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
My Illustrator and Photoshop CC is working fine. Only ID has this problem. I tried upgrading it again after reinstalling thru the Adobe Creative Cloud window and it even failed to upgrade with the message that says a patch failed and to try again later.
PLEASE HELP! I need to access my file and to do some urgent work on ID.
Well, that's a message you would see if ID is crashing with corrupt recovery data.
Try clicking no, then use File > Open.. to see if the file will, in fact open. There's a good chance it's damaged.
If ID doesn't open after you click No, you need to empty the InDesign Recovery folder manually, then open the program (Don't double click the file).
I've already deleted the file, giving up after clicking Yes, No and Cancel with the same problem. I read some advice from another forum about signing out of Adobe Creative Cloud. I sign out and the problem is gone!
I'm starting to work all over again with a new file and so far nothing has happened and hopefully not. I did empty the Adobe InDesign recovery folder just in case. However, I'm now afraid to sign in to Adobe Creative Cloud. What should I do?
You can work without signing in until the system needs to check for subscription status. I've never heard of sign-in causing anything like this.
Well that's exactly what happened. I do not understand how as Adobe has nothing to say about this. Before signing out, ID did not work at all when opening both from the saved files and direct. Now its OK. Could it be the Typekit sync?
