Dreamweaver CS6 Hangs Upon Exiting "Manage Sites"

Jul 20, 2012 8:35 AM

Anytime I edit an existing site or add a new site under "Manage Sites" and click "Done", Dreamweaver will hang with the spinning beach ball for 5-6 minutes.  During that time the app is unusable.  A pretty bad bug.  After the hang time, the app works fine.

    OS version?


    Have you tried re-creating the site cache?

    I have the same problem.


    Windows 7 x64, 12GB Ram, Dual Xeon 2.66 processors (12 threads)

    Dreamweaver CS6 v12 build 5808.


    It will freeze for 3-4 minutes and it is unusable. Then it works as normal. Seems to freeze when I open a file, save or switch between files in the app.


    I tried to Disable Dreamweaver's Resolve To IP Address feature: r-cs5.html


    it did not help.

    Do you have any 0 KB files in your local site folder? 

    0 KB files can cause DW to freeze or become non-responsive. 


    The solution is to remove the 0 KB file or simply add some text/carriage returns to it and the problem goes away.

    I do not use the Sites, I just use Files. So this possible fix does not work for me. Thanks for trying Nancy.

    You do not use sites?  Why?  Is it that you are only editing content?


    Should this discussion be in a separate thread since it has no commonality with the subject here?
