    Problems getting Indesign Server CS6 to run

    Charles_Parrington Level 1

      Hi there

      I have been battling to get InDesign Server CS6 to run on a new server. Please can you assist and tell me if I am looking in the correct place?

      I have installed Indesign Server CS from the installer files, I must add that this license was installed on a previous server that crashed.

      During installation I input the license key provided by Adobe for the version I am using. But I also used the adobe_prtk ... command prompt to activate the license; I received the following from the command prompt. (i have not shown the correct serial number for obvious reasons.


      C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\Enterprise\utilities\APTEE\

      CS6>adobe_prtk --tool=Serialize --leid=InDesignServer-CS6-Win-GM --serial=9999-1

      9999-9999-9999-9999-9999 --adobeid=charles@mydomain.co.za

      Return Code = 0


      I get the Return Code = 0 which I understand means the product was activated correctly?


      But then I run the IndesignServer.exe from the command prompt and during the startup I am getting "Unknown Server License: .... see below, again just masked the actual license code used during the activation above.

      So what is the problem, what have we not done? Any suggestions please? What is also strange is that we then tested our script using the ExtendedScript application, and it worked fine, but as soon as we try to trigger IndesignServer using a script nothing happens, is this to do with the licensing above?
