I got a new request from the customer: upgrade an old plugin(cs5 compatible) -> indesign cc2020 compatible.
Since the previous creator has left, now I have to test that plugin functions and stuff to create a new one. But it only works on indesign cs5...

Can anybody help?

- A download link?

- Or how to decompile a .pln file?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

See the following link it might work for you https://prodesigntools.com/all-adobe-cs5-direct-download-links.html

 

Now regarding decompiling a plugin, i am afraid that would not be easy. This being a C++ dll would be very difficult to decompile. I have worked on such projects, my advice, your best bet would be to see how the code works and rewrite it afresh. Also investigate the possibility to create a hybrid solution i.e. writing just the model part of the solution as a C++ plugin, exposing scriptable methods or events and creating the front-end using something like scriptui or CEP extension. Such an effort would reduce the development time
