Was it all clean installs? What happens when you try to run ID?
If you mean 'clean' by importing the cs from discs, yes. But only on my previous iMac. I have just upgraded to this 5K and transferred all that I have in one go from the old machine.
ID doesn't open up at all, but instead show a popup window with an crash report.
(Illustrator and Bridge still works fine).
That's what I mean, and transferring from another machine does not work for InDesign, and you may develop problems with the other Adobe apps. Uninstall, run the cleaner tool (CS Cleaner Tool for installation problems | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3) and reinstall from your disks, then run the updates.
Of course you may still have some troubles because as far as I know CS5.5 is not officially supported on your OS, but the odds of success are pretty good.
Transfering (MIgration) is not supported, it is not allowed with Adobe Applications, it will not work.
You have to run the cleaner tool.
But Yosemite is not supported with your version.
Retina Displays are also not supported. The first version with InDesign which is supporting Retina Displays was CC 2015, nothing before.
Not supported for retina displays does not mean the software will not work, though, just that the display will be less than the best quality.
Actually the first version with retina support is the first release of CC.
Ok, thanks Peter. I will try this maneuver.
Ok, guys. First of all, thank you all for feedback.
Now, I have finally manage to solve the issue by uninstall all previous CS5 version, and then re-install as new – from the original discs. And it works: InDesign, Illustrator and Bridge, all CS5-versions all work! Super.
And to all of you (not necessarily in this thread) who comment on the fact that it would better to support Adobe by subscribing to their products I will say this: Yes, you are all right, and I do – to LR and PSD. And will probably soon subscribe to InDesign and Illustrator as well.
