Yesterday I get InDesign Update and after that the external object AdobeXMPScript is not reachable from InDesign.

Try to execute the attached code:

 

if (ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript == undefined)
    ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');
alert (ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript);

 

And you will get this error:

 

JavaScript Error!

 

Error Number: 52

Error String: I/O error

 

Engine: main

File: /Users/.../Scripts Panel/InDesign Test.jsx

Version 16.0-ME/en_AE/Scripts/Scripts Panel/InDesign Test.jsx

Line: 2

Source:

ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');
