InDesign CS2 and InDesign 3.0.1 - Adobe Indesign Windows

Hello I just recently updated all my Adobe programs with the new Creative Suite. Two other people in my office have InDesign as well as other programs in the adobe suite. Now my other two colleges cannot open my indesign doents. Both have down loaded the update that is supposed to make the two compatible. Is there something else we need to do. is there a fix for this?...

    You haven't read the readme file of the latest 3.0.1 update carefully,
    have you? Then you would know that the backsave compatibility only works
    via the INX file format. Only fully patched IDCS versions can open the
    INX files generated by IDCS2.

    Can anyone explain this in layman's terms?

    1. From the CS2 File menu, choose Export, then as File Type choose InDesign Interchange Format. That will create a file with the extension INX.

    2. In CS1, open the INX file as you would any other InDesign file.

    Warning: step 2 can take a l-o-o-ng time, and it may appear that the program is frozen and nothing is happening. The good news is that the conversion is usually perfect.

    I am REALLY desperate. I have upgraded my InDesign CS to 3.01. I have a new job, and the files that I am working from are InDesign CS2 (created on my boss' s Windows PC). From his PC I exported the files as INX. I STILL can't open the files on my Mac. InDesign crashes when I try to open these files. My new boss wants me to work on a PC and I am about ready to do it unless someone has any other ideas on how to make these files work.
    I am working on the Tiger OS. Thanks.

    Lynn,

    Don't quite understand. ID 3.01 is CS 1, that's not an upgrade. Are you going up, down, or just sideways? Only use INX if you need backward compatibility, but if you're going backward and sideways you may have a problem.

    I've had no problems with files simply copied from PC to Mac, but the Mac version of ID is higher.

    Lynn,

    You do understand that you need to be patched to the latest (April 2005) flavor of CS 3.0.1?

    I did install the 3.01 compatibility patch (upgrade) so my indesign version is 3.01 (just did an "about indesign" check to make sure I hadn't imagined that). Isn't that supposed to allow me to open files that were exported from CS2 as INX files?
    But the INX files (which I exported from a Windows PC running InDesign CS2) crash when I try to open them on my MAC (OS Tiger).

    Will the Windows machine open these INX files?

    There is a bug that is probably causing those crashes. Switch off color management, open the .inx doent. Update the links. And then switch color management back on.
