I'm having an issue starting up Indesign CS3 since upgrading to Leopard. It seems like everything else has been working great, including the rest of CS3, so I'm kinda baffled as to why this doesn't.

When I open it, after loading for a few seconds, I get this error:



Any ideas?

Is this after freshly installing Indesign or just opening Indesign after upgrading to Leopard ?
Opening indesign after upgrading to leopard. I also have suitcase, but I tried it with suitcase closed, and it still doesn't open.

I did a complete erase and install of Leopard (not sure if you did) and In Design CS3 is working fine for me.

works on tiger not on leopard. this can be a disaster for some one like me who uses it alot. Adobe should release a patch within next days if they are competent enough

*opens indesign*

*waits with a beating heart*

Did this error occur right after you opened InDesign? Or did you start working in it and then it happened?

It seems to be working fine for me. :/

Howdy...

I know this probably doesn't help, but I did an upgrade to Leopard today, and inDesign is working just fine for me.

Also, PhotoShop and Illustrator work too... All CS3 versions...

I'm fairly amazed, since so many are reporting problems...

Best,

Ben

Normal OS update and ID works fine, though it took ages to open... (I was also indexing at the time...)

Good thing my CS3 seems to be working.

Arghh

I have exactly the same problem. I made an upgrade from 10.4.10 to 10.5 on my mpb c2d. Everything seems to work except indesign. I have tried everything. People had the same problem before leopard, but they it´s because you haven't got a default printer or that its a bug concerning the SING plugin. I´ve uninstalled, installed, tried everything. Please somebody help, got a desperate deadline. So pretty stupid to upgrade to leopard without backup. Let me know if you hear something! Thanks in advance!!!
