DW CS6 Mac OS (latest): how to find the cash file?

Aug 26, 2012 8:44 PM

Tags: #dw_cs6

recently I run into problem with DW, it keeps hanging.

In this forum is mentioned to delete the cash file could help.

Unfortunately I cannot find any cash file.

In the mentioned path:  >Library>Aplication Support>Adobe> there is no Dreamweaver CS6 directory or any sign of Dreamweaver.

I went through the whole list and found it only in >Extension Manager CS6>EM Store and it is empty.

Now, what to do? Any idea how to solve the problem would be appreciated.


Another problem is Fireworks CS6 does not open from inside DW CS6, it gives an error: check whether it is installed or there is enough memory, even if I start FW first, it gives the same error.

    See if these help


    Locating your personal configuration folder


    "In Mac OS X (Lion), open Finder and press Shift-Cmd-Go. Type ~/Library/Application Support in the dialog box, and click Go. You should then be able to find the configuration folder."

    Let's first deal with your cache problem as you are on a Mac machine with a problem that is very topical on these forums.  To find your cache, I suggest read this FAQ:




    This should handle your cache problem.  For fireworks, repost your question on FW forum at this link:




    Hope this should cover most things for the moment.

    opening bigger files (perhaps 200kB) with a few .js and css files attached DW CS6 switches into some kind of crawl mode, it takes minutes before it responds to a mouseclick or keyboard entry and working is impossible.

    If you have very large files, it's generally a good idea to turn off the site cache to speed up Dreamweaver's response.


    1. Go to Site > Manage Sites.
    2. Select the site that contains the large files, and click Edit (the pencil-shaped icon at the bottom left).
    3. In the Site Setup dialog box, select Advanced Settings > Local Info.
    4. Deselect the Enable Cache check box.


    This setting is site-specific, so you need to change it for each site individually.


    Also, if DW is running slow, check the amount of memory in your machine. The more the better.
