What version of InDesign is installed, and what is the EXACT error message? Do you see it when opening a file, or when opening the program?
I have version cs6 and this is what the message says. It happens when I open the program and then won't let me open it and it closes.
Adobe InDesign cannot load the appframework.rpln plug-in.. The plug-in requires the 8.1 version of InDesign. Please contact the vendor to get a compatible version of appframework.rpln.
Then it says this for about 20 other apps and then closes.
Uninstall and reinstall.
