Recently when I open InDesign 2017 either directly or through Creative Cloud desktop, it shows the startup screen and then crashes with no error message before ever opening the program fully.
Other weird factors include:
I'm running the latest Windows 10 version and everything else is up to date.
I've tried the basic troubleshooting so far including reinstalling InDesign, reinstalling Creative Cloud AND InDesign together, and deleting my preferences in all these cases. None of this has fixed the problem. Last time this happened (about a week after the CC 2017 release, last year, on a different computer), Adobe tech support told me to uninstall my antivirus software. Since this has happened on other computers with other antivirus programs, I'm not convinced that'd help even if I was desperate enough to go without virus protection (and my office's use policy forbids going without antivirus anyway).
I have exactly the same problem
I try without anti virus, same problem
