Hi. I have an indesign doc that someone on my team was using - it crashed when she tried to place a PNG on the page, and now we cannot open the document. When I open it, it even looks like its trying to place something (has small icon of PNG by cursor) and then crashes.
This is the crash report:

Can anyone help??
Are you trying to open on the same computer, or using the same user account? If yes, then empty the InDesign Recovery folder and restart ID and use File > Open.. to try to open the last saved version (if it fails, the file is corrupt). If not, and File > Open is not working the file is corrupt and you should try first the script at Adobe Community: InDesign 6 is crashing when attempting to open a particular document. All others are opening OK. followed by the tool at INDDRecovery — a program for restoring corrupted InDesign documents
If neither of those works, and the file would cost more than a few hundred dollars to rebuild, you can try the paid service from Markzware: Bad InDesign or Quark File Recovery Submission Form
When I open it, it even looks like its trying to place something (has small icon of PNG by cursor) and then crashes.
Did you try trashing or moving the problem PNG to another drive before opening the recovery file? Maybe in that case ID will just see it as a missing link and open the layout?
