I have Dreamweaver CS4 running with Windows XP Pro SP3. Until a couple of days ago I had no problems with the system and my sites are a mixture of static HTML and dynamic ASP and PHP.

This problem has suddenly arisen - I can open .html, .js, .css files OK, but I cannot open existing, or create new, .php or .asp files in any local site.

When I do this, Dreamweaver crashes and I get the Microsoft message "Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 has encountered a problem and needs to close."

Everything closed down normally the previous day, and the only Windows update in the intervening period was a security update for Office 2003, which shouldn't have affected anything in the Adobe Web Premium suite.

Is this a known problem, and is there a fix for it? Or will I have to uninstall and reinstall Dreamweaver on my PC?

try a repair

I think one of your config files is corrupt

Thanks for that, davidj.

I reinstalled DW and, fingers crossed, all now seems to be OK.
