Hi,

you still can install and use the ExtendScript Toolkit (ESTK) application on Windows 10.

And still you can connect with InDesign 2022 version 17.4 with it. At least I can do this on my Windows 10 machine. With ESTK CS6 and the ESTK CC as well. Have both versions installed.

 

Installer file AdobeExtendScriptToolkit_4_LS22.exe is available at:

( Scroll down to section Other Tools Included in Creative Cloud 2014 )

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2014-direct-download-links.html

 

To get all possible targets, also the latest version of InDesign, run this line of code in the ESTK:

BridgeTalk.__diagnostics__;

 

Part of the result should be:

indesign-17.064:

Uwe Laubender

Hi @spicyDoge ,

if you cannot see the target Adobe InDesign 2022 in the ESTK, uninstall InDesign 2022 with all preferences.

Log out from the Creative Cloud Desktop app, restart your machine, log in to Creative Cloud Desktop app and install InDesign 2022 again.

Hi @Hervé5FB5 ,

thanks for that. Therefore my code to get the BridgeTalk diagnostics.

Let's see if @spicyDoge gets

indesign-17.064:

as part of the result. If not, the code you posted will fail as well.

Do you mean that when you right-click the script in the Script Panel in InDesign and select "Edit Script", it no longer opens in ESTK? Is that the problem?
