I have had InDesign CC 2014 installed on windows 8 computer for month but recently I cannot open it as evertytime it crashed saying 'windows has encountered a problem causing InDesign to stop working' I have tried everything I can think of...please help! (I have it through creative cloud and my other programmes are fine so I don't understand why it is just InDesign?)
What happened the last time it did work? Was there a crash? You might have bad recovery data that is causing it to crash again on restart.
See Replace Your Preferences for directions to the HIDDEN folders where your prefs are stored. The recovery folder is in the same location as the InDesign SavedData file. Empty it and try again.
Try locating the recovery folder and delete the files in it. It happens that CC is able to delete the file and is crashing over and over again, till you delete the files manually.
