    Can't connect to InDesign in ExtendScript Toolkit

    Cleo_helm Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to write Scripts in ExtendScript for Adobe InDesign.

      I read the thread about the lack of a program to choose in ExtendScript (from 2013). I have Adobe InDesign in the list, but it doesn't open or makes connection when I choose it. It also doesn't connect when I have InDesign already open.

      When I open InDesign manually I have to say as admin to allow InDesign to open, this I can't change, is this an issue for ExtendToolkit, is there any workaround?

      It is anoying to copy every change in a script to the correct folder and than run it in InDesign where I can't see why something is not working.

      Thank you for help

      Cleo

       

      I made this Bridge Diagnosis (BridgeTalk.__diagnostics__;) thing and this is the result:
