100% CPU and slow typing on a Mac

This issue has been fixed in the 12.1 Creative Cloud update. A fix for perpetual licence holders is in the works. More details.

Crashes, installation, JavaScript errors, and unexplained problems

If Dreamweaver is acting erratically, or if you see a message saying "the following JavaScript error(s) occurred",  it's usually a sign of a corrupt cache file. The first thing to try should always be to delete the file cache. If that doesn't work, delete your personal Configuration folder. Full instructions are in Deleting a corrupted cache file.


If you're having general installation problems, check the installation logs. There's also a dedicated forum for Downloading, Installing, Setup. When posting there, give details of your system and any error messages you get.
