    ID CS4 crashes upon launch, failed to recognize plugins

    khinbr

      I have InDesign CS4 and today it started to crash immediately upon launch.  I wasn't opening up any particular document...just trying to open InDesign.  It did not produce a crash log, but I did get the following error messages:

       

      "Failed to open plugin resources: METADATA.RPLN. Please install METADATA plug-in."

      "Does not recognize SPREAD.RPLN as a valid plug-in. Please reinstall."

       

      Does anyone know how I can install these plugins, or what I can do to fix this problem?  I have searched the internet all day and have had no luck.  I have the entire creative suite and have no problems with anything else...but can no longer access InDesign.

       

      Thanks for any help or suggestions.
