Sequencing Adobe InDesign CS3

Adobe InDesign should be the last of the Adobe CS3 applications that I’ll have to sequence and like Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat, I had the same issues with sequencing and running the application on the client. So I don’t have to repeat myself, check out those posts first and here are the basics for sequencing InDesign CS3.


InDesign has a couple of copies of FILEINFO.DLL that you’ll need to create manifest files for when sequencing, so place the manifest files here:

  • Y:\00000011\Adobe\Adobe Bridge CS3\fileinfo.dll.manifest
  • Y:\00000011\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS3\fileinfo.dll.manifest

Running on the client

As with Illustrator and Photoshop you’ll also need to ensure that these files exist on the client:

  • C:\Windows\WinSxS\Manifests\x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.163_x-ww_681e29fb.manifest
  • C:\Windows\WinSxS\Manifests\
  • C:\Windows\WinSxS\Policies\x86_policy.8.0.Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_x-ww_77c24773\8.0.50727.163.policy
  • C:\Windows\WinSxS\Policies\x86_policy.8.0.Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_x-ww_77c24773\

Although these files are picked up by the Sequencer and added to the VFS, the application won’t run without them being located on the client outside of the protected environment.
