View Full Version : DW8: Update 8.0.2 Won't Install on Win 7

11-08-2009, 10:27 PM
Loaded DW8 from original CD - on new PC after updating to Win 7 (64 bit) - then updated DW8 to 8.0.1. Success so far. Then attempted 8.0.2 update - FAILED with no specific error. Just said the installer failed.

What to do?

Having FTP problem so was trying to update DW8 (am opening a different thread for the FTP problem).

check with adobe, it sounds like a win7 issue maybe after service pack 24 it will work :)

If they follow their regular policy, I doubt that Adobe supports anything but the current version on Win 7. Maybe reinstall and don't update this time?

Afaik, DW does not support 64bit.

Here's a fix for you though:
After 2 weeks and lots cursing I thought of trying to install Dreamweaver 8 and patching it on another computer - which was running Vista 32bit, then copying the whole installed directory to my Vista 64 bit computer and it works !! Before doing this I renamed the exisiting folder containing the unpatched Dreamweaver (incase it didn't work) and then copying the patched installation to the same location as the old folder (i.e. same harddrive).
