Did you try to open this doc without any window applied?
app.open (thisFile, false);
'Cause further solution depends on above success.
Script need to open file alike user need in UI - however above way could skip some display errors.
Didn't solve the problem.
Anyway thanks for the help!
If ID crashes when you open that file, then a start-up script isn't going to help you. That script has to open the file, and will crash InDesign as before.
Thanks P. !
