View Full Version : Unable to start DW8

03-18-2007, 08:09 AM
I have dreamweaver 8 installed, somehow something must have gone wrong because when I launch the programme it gets to the "loading site cache" step and there It stops.
I have created DVD projects with dreamweaver with A LOT of links to video files, external links and others and I have deleted this without removing the site in site manager.
I have un-installed dreamweaver and re-installed It but now It gets to this step and hangs last time for over 20 minutes before I shut it down.
Any suggestion on how I may be able to overcome this?

Have no heard about this one before and could not find any other reference to similar cases. You should probably contact Adobe support asap.

This thread brings up a good point. I followed a DW tutorial on an authorized DW DVD Training video step by step to complete my page.

One single simple page. And it doesn't work. No one can tell me why. I'm not a software techie nerd, but I'm not a dumbass either. I've been working with computers in my businesses since 1981. I'm above the average in computer use. I have two blogs I've tweaked and changed and they look great.

But I can't get my DW page to work after following the step by step tutorial?

Where do I get a refund of my $400?

Have you tried deleting the site cache file?
Found under:
C:/documents and settings/username/application data/macromedia/dreamweaver8/configuration/site cache

Then delete the site cache and directory for the site you where working on.

The best thing to try is to un-install This is *never* the first thing you should do imho.
