View Full Version : Dreamweaver 8 will not start

01-09-2006, 11:35 AM
I have installed the trail version of Dreamweaver 8 on my laptop which is running XP Pro with service pack 1 and 512 ram

It loaded fine and was working then I renamed the index.html file then it crashed and now it will not load Dreamweaver

I have rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled repaired but all I get is the splash screen and when I click the try demo it closes the screen

This is the first time that itís been installed on this laptop

Any ideas would be most grateful

when you remove DW i would remove any directory its left in program files

also get rid of any references in your registry then reinstall

The uninstall will remove the program files and registry entries, but it will not remove and where your problem lies is, C:\Documents and Settings\[profile name]\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8. So when you uninstall it also go there and remove this directory.

The uninstall will remove the program files and registry entries

not all the time. Trial products leave a reminent in the registry which checks if they have been installed previously
