I have several InDesign versions on my win7 PC because my clients are using different InDesign versions. I have tried to set an older InDesign CC version as a default program associating indd file extension to InDesign CC2017. It is not possible because only InDesign CC2019 is available on the list to choose. Not even possible using Browse option to show InDesign CC2017 exe file.

What to do?

Use file > open from InDesign CC2017 and please note that InDesign 2020 is now available but will not install on your Win 7 computer as it is not supported. Microsoft will cease all support shortly, as well.

A couple of other things to try is to set INDD association in Bridge or uninstall / reinstall CC2017 to get Windows to see it as the most recent version.

No, I never reinstalled it. Instead of it I used File open command. But despite everything I succeeded to install CC2020 to my Windows 7 workstation ("...please note that InDesign 2020 is now available but will not install on your Win 7 computer as it is not supported.") So I have now CC2017, CC2019 and also CC2020 working on my workstation.
