So I am not sure if this is the proper location for this. I posted in the javascript forum and was told to try here. I also searched the forums and could not find a good support answer. So I use Creative cloud at work, but I can not seem to download the extend script program. I had it installed and have been having no problem. All of a sudden I get random crashes from the extend script and Now I can no longer open it. I downloaded the only version I could find (3.5) and when I try to install it it tells me I am missing a file and to download a "Adobe Service Advisor" the two longer exists. any idea what I can do? also I am on Mac and I have already cleared out everything I could find about extend script on the computer. Also it no longer shows up in the creative cloud app.

they hid the direct download in the CC app. Check this thread for instructions to make it show and a direct download to the latest version.

I just stumbled upon this solution a few moments ago...

From InDesign, I opened the Scripts panel and right-clicked on a .jsx file and chose edit. ExtendScript Toolkit then installed itself.

I am using Adobe CC (2018)

Maybe someone else can verify this works for them also...
