Question about Adobe InDesign CS2 for PC

1 Answer

Hi... I installed the Creative CS2 Suite including Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, Illus... etc onto my laptop which is running Vista basic OS. When I try to start up Indesign it only gets as far as the initialising stage (ie. Starting Up Service Registry) then stops and a window comes up saying the program has stopped working properly due to a problem (which it doesn't specify) and that it will close the window. I tried to reintall just the Indesign part of the program. But this had no effect. Can you please help

    Hi.... I uninstalled the whole CS2 Suite off my Laptop and Re-installed it again, hoping that this would solve my Indesign problem... but alas, no, luck.... still got the same problem... it just doesn't want to get past the "Starting Up Service Registry..." then it comes up the the 'Closing Down' program details as mentioned before. It is a brand new laptop and it's running VISTA Home Premium Version of OS. Any ideas????

Is this a legit copy of the software? You may need to do a full uninstall of CS2 and then try it again. Is it only a problem with indesign? It also sounds like a similar problem I've found with a Vista issue, is this on XP or Vista?

    Sounds like a 64 bit compatibility issue. CS2 was released with windows XP in mind and since Vista home premium is running in 64 bits they wouldn't be compatible. So unfortunately you may be victim to the Vista software abyss... There is a possible workaround. By installing to "C:\progra~2" instead of the default directory. If that doesn't work Adobe's stance is that they don't officially support 64bit on CS2...

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

If anyone know the Adobe Indesign CS2 serail no. plz send me.


Contact Adobe Customer Support (not Technical Support). They certainly do support CS2 and should be able to assist you assuming that you did register the program when you first installed it (there are good reasons to register). If you get a baloney answer about not supporting CS2, ask to speak to a supervisor and get names of those you speak to.

Other, check this several choice:
- search/?search=photoshop+cs2
- smartserials.com/serials/Photoshop_CS2_9.0_29467.htm

- CS1 Keygen Adobe Photoshop Cs1 Keygen Free 100% Working
- CS2 Keygen Adobe Photoshop Cs2 Keygen Free 100% Working

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Is Adobe InDesign CS3 compatiable with Photoshop CS2?

Serial Number to InDesign and Illustrator CS2


Make sure the serial number for number zero is not the letter o. Make sure the letter l is not mistaken for the letter i or the number 1. These numbers and letters are often typed in wrong because they look similar to each other. Also, make sure the serial number is not case sensitive, so try in all caps or no caps.

Adobe indesign cs2 stopped working


Try first Uninstalling the program from control panel and reinstalling the Adobe suite after restarting the computer.

If it did not work, try doing a system restore to some times ago, before you had the problem , then reinstall CS2

If you still have problems, it may be an operative system problem.
