Installation notes

  • InDesign CS5 7.0.3 includes the cumulative fixes from InDesign CS5 7.0.2 (posted August 2010). Any new fixes are marked with an asterisk (*).
  • Before you install, close all applications currently running on your system—including other Adobe applications, Microsoft Office applications, and browser windows.  It is also recommended to temporarily turn off virus protection during the installation process. 
  • You must have administrative privileges or be able to validate as an administrator. 
  • Please make sure that the InDesign application is shut down in advance of running the InDesign updater (at least 1 minute recommended).  
  • Due to the nature of bug 2607326, where multiple users are able to check out and edit InCopy files, it is highly recommended that:
    • All users in a workgroup update to 7.0.3 at the same time.
    • All InCopy files and assignments are checked in before running the InDesign CS5 7.0.3 updater.
