I just got the CS3 InDesign Suite reinstalled last night. I tried opening to get some work done and the updater dialogue box comes up with "Adobe Updater quit unexpectedly." If I report it, nothing happens, and I cannot use Illustrator. If I ignore it, some result. I can click to reopen but the dialogue box returns almost immediately.
I running this on a MBP with Yosemite 10.10.5 operating system. I have tried reinstalling the suite but that does not change the behavior.
How can I get my work done?
CS3 is not supported under Yosemite and getting it to work at all is largely a matter of luck. I'd start by booting the Mac with the Shift key down to see if blocking startups allows it to run. Manually downloading and installing the updates from Adobe.com may help, too.
