restart your computer and then check the installation directory to see if id is installed and working.
I have the same problem, and this does not resolve it. Should I un-install the CS software, then re-install it?
what does your cc desktop app show after restarting your computer?
Only that InDesign had not installed. It went back below the "find additional apps" bar in the CC window.
Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.6.
I did a little research and ran the "Creative Cloud Cleaner" for InDesign last night. I was able to re-load the software and get it working, but it still crashes frequently. I am a graphic designer and wanted to have a project case study printed in Blurb (www.blurb.com) which offers an InDesign plug-in. The trouble started after I'd installed that plug-in, so I needed to completely purge the preferences, etc. from InDesign. Evidently it left something on my hard drive because CC indicated that InDesign was installed, but in fact it wasn't.
Before I'd used the "cleaner," I'd try to install InDesign and it would go from 0% to 99%, then drop back below the "find additional apps". Very strange behavior.
If I tried to open an ID file, it would say no software was available to open the document. However, I would still see the ".idlk" file in the folder which appears when an InDesign file is open. It's there even now, because it tries to open the case study document I'd been trying to access.
As of this morning, I can open other ID files on my hard drive. The only one I can't open is the case study file I need to access. Since I'm traveling for the holidays, my only backup is on an external drive back at home. My plan is to use a backup and delete the current file on my hard drive, which I believe got corrupted by the Blurb plug-in.
Did you ever find a full solution for this, I'm having the same. I can install the 2015 version but as soon as I run the update it goes from 0% to 99% then drops out of the list like it's never been installed before. Funny thing is I've had this working on this system before, I'm running Mac OSX Sierra on an iMac. It was behaving very strangely, so I still haven't updated the system on my other CPU just incase Adobe haven't sorted out these gremlins yet. I need this for work, maybe they should spend less time and energy developing lesser apps and make these standard ones work better.

The kglad solutions worked, I would suggest you do the same. Yeah, this was a total pain and it corrupted the one file I needed to have while on the road, but inconvenience aside, my InDesign is working perfectly now.
