Delay opening files

Aug 18, 2012 7:03 AM


I use Dreamweaver CS6 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with MAMP PRO to manage 4 sites.

This configuration are OK and works perfect without error.

When close all files and open one then I have a delay near 15 seconds (appears the cursor with the multicolor circle), and after that delay, all files in the same site open instantly.

Ok, I can leave at least one file open and all the other will open fast, but why Dreamweaver are so slow when close all files in the same site and re-open? Need to configure in a different way to remove this behaviour?

Can you help me?

    Not sure why this is so in your case but in general Dreamweaver needs to check the validity of your software by looking at the serial number and whether it is activated or not.  If you look in the Process Inspector of your system, you will find that there are so many processes running in the background and these all have to load before loading DW.


    15 seconds may be a lot to wait but on my old Windows XP it takes about a minute to launch it (this is whole 60 seconds or 4 times 15 seconds).  That is why I prefer to use CS4 on XP machines.
