Thank you for sharing the details, Michael. You may try following these steps and let us know how it goes:

 

1. Reset Preferences:

  • Close all Adobe applications.
  • Go to Locations :
  • C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Adobe
  • C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Adobe.
  • Rename InDesign folders to InDesign.old
  • Launch InDesign from CC.

 

Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and InDesign will launch with default settings. This way all your old settings will be saved in .old folders and InDesign will recreate new folders with default settings.

 

2. If that doesn't help, try booting the system into Safe Mode (https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode) and check how it works there.

Cannot make a new account, it's a company account. InDesign is the only app on my system causing this crash.

Thank you - trashing both of these folder completely seems to have done the trick for now.

 

FYR: recommending registering ntdll.dll does not seem to be a valid solution path in any situation as this dll does not seem to have this feature built into it.:

Unfortunately, didn't last long; and now trashing those folders won't fix it:

 

Faulting application name: InDesign.exe, version: 15.0.2.323, time stamp: 0x5e4c34a9
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.18362.778, time stamp: 0x0c1bb301
Exception code: 0xc0000374  (STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION)

 

- Tried original solution of trashing preference folders

- Tried Logging Out/Logging in again

- Tried disabling font activation 

 

Problem persists. Problems seems to be triggered by creating custom Workspace. I have two monitors. And I relocate all palettes to second monitor. Within a couple uses of this, the error triggers, and the program crashes.

Oh no! Sorry to hear about this, Michael. We are getting couple of issues related to DLL errors on Windows machines. Are there any system updates installed recently?

 

Also, please try following these steps and let us know how it goes:

  • Close All the Applications. 
  • Go to Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features. 
  • Right click Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 (x64)/  2017-2019 (x64). 
  • Click Change > Repair. 
    Repair Microsoft Visual C++ 1.pngRepair Microsoft Visual C++.png
  • Restart the system. 
  • Relaunch InDesign and check how it works.

Exited Adobe Creative Cloud APP (Stay signed in was checked at last login).

Open InDesign, Open file, App becomes non-responsive before loading file:

 

InDesign_WaitChain.JPG

 

Re-open InDesign - Attempt to Re-Open File - Back into crash loop - File Opens, fails to complete process floating palettes on secondary monitor; App crashes before allowing any editing function.

Having to audible and regularly use Adobe Illustrator to solve page layout design issues in the meantime - not ideal.

 

Fresh login, same issue occurs...

That doesn't sound good.  It looks like we need to troubleshoot this on a live session. Please head here (https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html) and select the chat button in the lower-right corner of the page. We can help troubleshoot faster that way.

1. Ran latest updates from today. Logged out, Rebooted, Logged in. Opened App = Crashed immediately after load.

2. Refreshed preferences from a backup. Opened. Crashed immediately.
3. Completely removed "AppData> Local + Roaming >Adobe>InDesign" folders. Restarted program. Crashed after loading "new in this version"; Restarted app about 3 times until stabilized...currently working.

 

Hope this helps you figure out where the leaks/issues/ghosts in the machine are...

Indesign starts a little more then crashes back to desktop.
Faulting application name: InDesign.exe, version: 15.0.2.323, time stamp: 0x5e4c34a9
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.18362.418, time stamp: 0x99ca0526
Exception code: 0xc0000374
 
I then launch InDesign and proceed to open a file it crashes again so I uninstall InDesign and remove preferences
 
I run the InDesign install for the same version 15.0.2
I launch InDesign it doesn't load
I launch InDesign with ctrl-alt-shift and it opens for a while but crashes - same ntdll error...
 
so I make sure windows is fully up to date - no change - 
Please what is the cause of this?

thankyou so much for your reply.

Are you able to point me to the info that outlines the requirements for privelages if this may help?

 

I have and performed the tasks I reported as Administrator- and have done this again including removing the userprofiles folders.

I had the same result as below. 

I find it suspect for this to be Operating System fault, there was no change to the OS over that time, and I have 2 other identical machines and software, they are not affected, I have also run system file checker and it finds no fault

Sorry, 

also in your other posts where you suggest removing appdata as the fix you also go on to say adobe has published a fix for the same issue- however we have already got that fix as we are using a later version

 

Thankyou

Frankly this is just too complicated.

Why does not Adobe just fix it from its end?
