I don't know what you mean by "changing a log of settings," but you can't fix this without fixing the permissions on your preference folders.
Thank you for your fast response. I had not come across your articles in my search. There are definitely simpler that the other posts to follow. I did the ctrl-alt-shift to delete InDesign preferences. Unfortunately for me this did not work. I read deeper into the links you posted about doing it manualy, but could not find the files or directory on windows 10.
You don't by any chance have a file path for windows 10 to these files.
The path is the same. The folders are hidden by default, so you need to set windows explorer to show hidden files and folders.
That said, if ID never launched it's possible there are no folders at all. Create a new Windows user account, log in with that and launch once from there, then use those folders to replace those for the original user. You must REPLACE, not merge, the folders, if they exist in the original account.
Hi thank you for your help.
I did manage to view the folders. Unfortunately after trying all the suggestions, it has still not worked. I have managed to install InDesign on my mac, so I am going to use that and wait for Adobe to fix this problem for new PC downloads. I saw allot of people in the forums saying that this is not Adobe's issue. My two cents is that Windows 10 has been out for awhile now, and as a new user of their CC software I expect them to supply it working.
Thanks again for your help and speedy response, much appreciated.
