I've had this for several years. I even opened it yesterday. I tried clicking on the shortcuts and the .exe file itself inside the Program file but it won't open. I have Windows 7. It shows as running in Processes but it won't show in Applications tab and it doesn't even open at all after waiting for over 5 minutes and restarting computer. Help. Photoshop and Fireworks opens. I have Adobe Web Suite package.
Check to see if Dreamweaver is still indicated as running in Processes when you reboot the computer. If there are leftover instances, it will not open again. This is all pseudo-knowledge. I have had programs that do this to me, though I can't remember it ever being DW. If you kill all the Dreamweaver Processes, shut down, then restart, Dreamweaver might launch for you.
Thanks much for your reply. I actually restarted it several times after I ended the process from task manager. I just tried restarting it in Safe Mode > Networking then used Rkill to stop all programs from running except the OS ones and then ran Malabytes. Malabytes didn't find anything. I restarted in normal mode and DW is still not opening.
I just started having this same problem. I can't start it from start->programs. Then I could start it by opening a document that I had open recently in Dreamweaver. But I had to go into processes first and stop it. Sometimes I have to repeat this over and over again, try to open a DW document, it won't open, stop the process, try again. I just had to do it about 6 times before it would open..
