I'm installing a InDesign CS4 Server on Windows 2003 Server for Small Business Server, Service Pack 2. 4Gb available on C:drive,Intel Xeon 3.2Ghz, 4Gb Ram
The machine had InDesign CS3 Server installed previously.
1. Uninstalled InDesign CS3 Server
2. Rebooted Machine.
3. Installed CS4 Server
4. Installed latest Rapid Release
5. Setup Win Service
and wondered why I wasn't prompted for the serial number at start of install. (ok, I hear you... should have read the read-me file first to see if anything in the installation process had changed...).
So I stopped the ID-Service and then ran the command-line serialisation at this point.
Checked in TaskManager no ID Server was running.
However the serialisation hangs after:
And the serialisation process seems to launch two processes at this stage: InDesignServer.com and InDesignServer.exe.
Which is right before this step... which is repeated twice and then the cursor just sits there... (doing nothing).
Before back-tracking fully and doing a complete uninstall and reinstall (and this time serialising after step 3), I thought I'd check if anyone had come across this and has a possible clue as to what's going in. Any help appreciated.
At this stage I'm scheduling a full uninstall/reinstall for Thursday if things aren't resolved today (Wednesday).

Here's what I see in the cmd console:
