Association of INDD files messy after update

Hello!

This is just a notification to Adobe's Indesign team, should they ever read this.

I had Indesign 2019 installed and now finally removed it, because don't used anymore. In parallel I have Indesign 2022. INDD files were associated to the 2022 executable. Now, after 2019 has been removed and I updated 2022 to latest 17.4.2, the association is gone. 

 

Of course, you can re-associate the INDD to Indesign via Windows' "Open with..." dialog, but there is the point: it doesn't list Indesign. It lists other apps like Illustrator or Photoshop, but not Indesign. As if it wouldn't exist. Sure, I know how to continue from there. Just wanted to mention that.

Your last post which speaks of the Cloud client. I actually meant that there is no separate installer for Indesign. OK, that was partially wrong, as there is a one, but that's not an offline installer. However, the problem is solved by manually associating INDD files to Indesign in Windows.

My post was also no "help wanted" post. I just wanted to notify Adobe. My guess is that their software tests lack something.

There actually not such a thing like an installer. The apps are managed via the Cloud Client and you usually don't download any installer exe anymore. At the moment, I think I wouldn't even be able to find one. 

However, as I said, you can easily solve it if you know how.

On Windows things don't materialise from a thin air - there is ALWAYS an installer - EXE file:

 

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\ACC\Creative Cloud.exe"

 

So even if you think that you do something "through the button (link) on the web" - there is always EXE at the end.
