Can I install Adobe InDesign CS5 on a Power Mac G5 running OS 10.5.8?


PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iMovie HD

    It needs an Intel Mac, so you can't install InDesign on your Power Mac

    InDesign CS4 will no longer open files. I get an error message that says I should update the plug-ins (or updgrade to CS5, which I can't do). How do I upgrade the plug-ins?

    first thing to try is reset InDesign:

     

    delete the preference file located here:

     

    system > users > home folder > library > peferences > com.adobe.InDesign.plist

     

     

    then repair the hard drive:

     

    shut down the Mac

    restart - then press shift key immediately after the chime

    keep pressing shift untill the Apple logo appears

    let the Mac boot to the desktop - it will take longer to boot as it is repairing the hard drive

     

    when desktop appears, restart the Mac normally

    Thanks. Actually I reinstalled InDesign and that solved the problem.
