- Are you facing the issue with every image?
- What is the image format(jpeg, png or other)?
- Is the image located on server/shared location? If yes, do InDesign crash if the image is on local machine?
- Can you try to reproduce the issue with a new blank document created in CC 2017?
- If the issue is document or image specific, Please package the entire document upload to Creative Cloud account (or Dropbox) and send the document link and images to email@example.com. To package the document, Go to File -> Package
- You can create the crash dump for windows using the following method:
1) Start Task Manager. To do this, use one of the following methods:
• Right-click an empty area of the task bar, and then click Start Task Manager.
• Press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC.
2) Click the Processes tab.
3) Right-click the name of the process(InDesign, in this case) that you want, and then click Create Dump File.

A dump file for the process is created in the following folder: Drive:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp
4) When you receive a message that states that the dump file was successfully created, click OK.

I can't even get to choose a file before ID crashes, so it's not related to a particular file type and I was in a new file. As the error is in ntdll.dll, I suspect it's a Windows issue and even though I've done a soft reinstall of Windows 10, I think I'm going to have to go back to the bare metal and start again, so I'll close this problem for now.
I'm on a free trial at the moment and as I haven't been able to do an effective trial because of this issue, would you be able to arrange for me to restart the trial after a rebuild (it may be a while as I have a lot of other work on)?
Sorry for the inconvenience but restart of trial is not possible. You can either try on a new clean machine or reimage the current machine.
The ntdll.dll issue seems to be because of nvidia display update not installed. More information available at Programs close-faulting module NTDLL.DLL - Microsoft Community
You could try resetting your Indesign Preferences:
Close and relaunch InDesign, and IMMEDIATELY hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences. you must be extremely fast on the keyboard (if you don’t see the confirmation prompt, you were too slow)
You may have to do it a couple of times before you get the hang of it!
(By the way, a trial version only lasts for seven days, so you'll need to be quick!)
Thanks, Sanyam - that link looks very helpful. I'll try it out, but will probably rebuild anyway when I have a gap in my schedule!
Thanks, Derek - I'll try that out.
Got it first time! :-) It seems to have done the trick - thanks.
