InDesign 17.0 crashes on launch after removing a previously installed CEP Extension
Steps to reproduce in InDesign 17.0:
- Install a CEP extension folder manually to ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions
- Launch then quit InDesign
- Delete CEP extension folder installed in step 1
- Launch InDesign, it will crash when "Starting up panels"
As a workaround deleting the following cache folder allows InDesign to launch again.
~/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 17.0
