Fate of Codewarrrior 9.3

Adobe Developer Support can only support the use of CodeWarrior 9.3 with the Adobe InDesign CS2 Product Family SDK – which is no longer commercially available. Further to this, our investigations with CodeWarrior 10 has highlighted library incompatibilities.

The bottom line is, CodeWarrior 10 should not be used with the with the Adobe InDesign CS2 Product Family SDK.

Freescale, the publishers of CodeWarrior, are supportive of our efforts, and are working with us to resolve the issue. I’ll have more details as they are worked out.
