This app works with: SheepShaver,

Adobe InDesign 2.0 (not CS2) codenamed Annapurna, was released in January 2002 - only days before the major release of QuarkXPress v5.0 (the writing was now on the wall for QXP). It was the first version of InDesign to support Mac OS X, native transparencies and drop shadows.

Adobe InDesign 2.0 software delivers the professional page layout tools you need to meet any design challenge and express your creative vision.

Adobe InDesign 2.0 software delivers the page layout tools you've always wanted. It's easy to learn and use because it integrates tightly with the applications you already know - Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat software. Its intuitive tools remove arbitrary creative limits, helping you capture your inspiration without interrupting the flow of creative ideas. When you're ready to print, the results are precise and reliable. You can even move beyond print with built-in support for publishing pages in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), as eBooks, on the web, and more.

If you want to keep the "2.0" in the name (perhaps so it lists properly with other versions like "2.1", etc.), you can always add something else on the end of the filename ("Install Adobe InDesign 2.0 app") or turn the name around to something a bit more sensible and easier to find in a list ("Adobe InDesign 2.0 Install"). Possibly changing it to "Install Adobe InDesign 2.0.app" would also work, if hasn't already got that filename extension (sometimes they're hidden).

YW. Yep, that's the system. But that's not only Adobe applications, as I discover that with a version of Disk Copy... Wink

Mac OS X recognize all items finishing with ".0" in the name as a document with an extension

Ah ha! So it's not me/we who are the dummies. It's the OS Smile
To be fair, it's the lousy file naming here, used by Adobe.

Thanks for that insight, MacTouch.

Thanks for all the changes. Fortunately, Adobe has let this installer update available. I'm not sure all the publishers have doing the same for their softwares. And especially for the ones who are no longer exists... But, yeah, that's the past & we are destined to find the missing ones as we can. Smile

[EDIT] Hi Mike,

Finally, I have found why the installer launch another application... Mac OS X recognize all items finishing with ".0" in the name as a document with an extension. So, here, for example, "Install Adobe InDesign 2.0" could not launch properly because the end finished with ".0". If u remove that like "Install Adobe InDesign 2", then Mac OS X will ask u to confirm removing the extension ".0" & if u do, the icon will change & in the "Get Info" window too (no more "Open with")... Of course, to operate, the image must be unlocked. Smile

Yes, the installer update "ID2OSXInstallFix.hqx" was the fix needed to get the ball rolling for OS X here, for sure.

I've since read that it was introduced for Mac OS X 10.1 because the installer on the original CD was flakey to say the least. Adobe also says it didn't affect all Macs at the time, just some and only for the English release of ID 2.0. Well I certainly struck it and it got worse the newer the Mac OS that I tried installing it onto.

Anyway. It's all history now Smile

I added the final 2.0.2 updates to the page.

I'm glad that it works now for you. You were so disappointed that I can let u down. That's why I was searching a solution for u. I'm here to help & u deserve that. Wink

[EDIT] The only regret I have is for the headache it is to solve compatibility issues on Mac OS platforms (I think about newbies). For Apple systems who wanted to be easier... In the other world, they have less difficulty with that. Like WhosIt.There said, there is a lot of software in such cases under Mac OS systems, alas...

@MacTouch: Super! Thank you for finding this (ID2OSXInstallFix.hqx), it is exactly what is required to install InDesign 2 onto 10.3 - 10.5.x at least.

I was now able to complete the install of this on PearPC running 10.3 - I didn't apply the 2.0.1 update patch (yet) but your installer worked fine and I am able to run InDesign version 2.0 as is. Great.

What I'm not happy about, is that I cannot install this on OS X 10.3x and 10.4x.
I've found a few examples of folks hitting this same (not enough permissions) issue but no solution. Some say that they are running it OK on Panther/Tiger, others like me get this install issue and can't proceed. So I don't know.

I've found a solution. I've just added an update of the installer. Just look on the page.
Caveat : InDesign will run just like the original installer. So, it is important to apply the updater u provided. I have added a screenshot of my personal desktop under 10.5 to show that it works just well. Smile

I haven't struck any gothcha's so far on the 9.0.4 SheepShaver install and I'm quite happy about that. Perhaps the developer's test machines only had 9.1 or newer to test with, so that was their target OS for the installer?

Added the 2.0.1 updater above. Got it from Adobe's ftp site. - Actually there are 3 files at the site named "ID201EN.HQX", "id201en.hqx" & "id202en.hqx" and they are all the same file Tongue - That is, their file checksums all match and the file named "id202en.hqx" which you would expect to be for the 2.0.2 updater is just misnamed and is the same 2.0.1 file as the other two mentioned here.

There's a lot of software (including Apple's own Mac OS) that is limited by the installer rather than actual physical computer specs ... but you may find that there is some functions, perhaps rarely used ones, that don't work under earlier unsupported versions of the OS due to something not yet included.

Thanks for having tested that & adding the installed software. So, finally, the minimum system requirements told by Adobe is not the expected one. I don't know why... But happy to learn that it works with SheepShaver.

...the installer returns a message requiring 9.1 under SheepShaver.

I see that the installer limitation is the barrier from having this run OK on SheepShaver. I installed this on my G4 running 9.2.2 then moved the installed copy over to a SheepShaver install running 9.0.4 (screenshot 5, above). It seems to run fine on SheepShaver (Mac OS 9.0.4) so I've added it as the 2nd DL above, for others to use.

I was using InDesign 2 for a few years under OS 9, OS X 10.1, and 10.2. Smile It has a few quirks, and a few missing / annoying features when compared to PageMaker, but I got used to it. Then swapped to InDesign CS1 and CS2 (under OS X 10.5). The jump to the latest version when I got this new Mac with macOS 10.12 was a bit of a culture shock (and more annoying quirks).

Thanks for testing it out on SheepShaver, even tho' it's a "no go". Really odd about the Automator launching. I'd quite like to test it under 10.1 - 10.3 - As I do have PearPC set up running 10.3 so I might try the installer later, on that.

[Edit] Yes, the installer launches correctly on 10.3, so it looks as though 10.1 - 10.3 the installer will behave as you would expect. With 10.4 on it gets a little weird but still looks do-able.

Spoke too soon perhaps? I attempted to complete the install on PearPC (OS X 10.3x), It appears to go OK & seems to get a long way into the install but then fails with a "You do not have enough privileges for this installation. [OK]" and aborts the install. I even tried the "sudo" approach but the result was the same. I don't know if its 10.3 or PearPC that's the problem.

You are right, this image seems normal as expected... I have also Automator's launch on Mountain Lion. In "Get info", type is application as usual, but Mac OS X shows also the option to choose the application to open it like a simple document. It's not recognized as PowerPC or Classic application. I suppose it can open properly under at least 10.1 like it does with Mac OS 9. However, it's not the only one from this period who are made for working with two differents systems.
Furthermore, I can confirm that the installer returns a message requiring 9.1 under SheepShaver.

I have noticed that the image doesn't request scrolling in the main window program, under Mac OS X as well as Mac OS 9. May be this image has been modified for...

Same here, it looks quite "normal" to me, especially under OS 9.x - It has not been modified as far as I can tell. Date stamps reflect last modified in 2002 which was it's release year.

Only odd thing for me was installing it on a G4 under OS X 10.4.11, where double-clicking the installer launches Apple's Automater software and I needed to use that to get the installer to launch properly. Weird, and I couldn't figure out why it was doing this. I didn't complete the install tho' as I have InDesign 3 on that machine. The installer behaves as expected on 9.2.2, also, I don't have 10.1, 10.2, or 10.3 set up to test further.

Of the emulators; QEMU & PearPC are the only options and these have their own set of issues. SheepShaver is out because InDesign 2 requires 9.1 and above. I haven't attempted installing it on an earlier OS but assume the ReadMe doc is correct.

Thanks 24bit, but, as far as I am concerned, I have so many emulators already installed on my computer that I won't use this one, at least, for the time being.

Besides that, I have noticed that the image doesn't request scrolling in the main window program, under Mac OS X as well as Mac OS 9. May be this image has been modified for...

For those not owning a matching Mac (any more) Qemu runs apps like this pretty well, albeit a bit slow.
OSX 10.3 or another PPC MacOS of your choice should do.
Running the installer the app looks for a Classic folder first it seems. If you don´t have Classic installed the installer does its thing for OSX.
If you want to try Qemu, best look here for recent builds: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=34

Agreed !

@ WhosIt.There

Thanks & well done for downloading this one successfully. It was so hard to find & add here. Now, I think everybody is happy to use it. I'm going to test it if possible to see if there is no problem to work with...

[EDIT] Finally, Knez have installed it & it works fine. So, I won't test it myself as I can't due to incompatibility...

The CD image looks all right on my side, except for the DesktopPrinters DB file on it.
Thanks for adding this!
Lets see whether someone with a matching Mac can make use of it.

One note, which should be obvious, but is not seemingly.
The installer package asks for a serial, like all Adobe apps I came across.
If you type in one, be sure to NEVER allow an Adobe app to phone home.
Serials become blacklisted in an instance and nobody will be able to use this app soon.
There are two obvious ways to stop apps from phoning home:
- Use a firewall to manage outgoing traffic from your Mac or PC.
- Disconnect your computer from the internet while running the program.
