When I try to open Dreamweaver, it gets as far as the Welcome Screen, then enter the Beach Ball. I've yet to successfully launch it even once. Other CS6 programs seem to run just fine. I've tried switching from 64-bit to 32-bit (and back), I've tried deleting everything I could find (including hidden prefs) related to Dreamweaver, I've updated to 12.1.1, and I'm running out of ideas. I'm using a brand-new iMac that came with Mountain Lion installed. Any suggestions?

Sigh...I *THOUGHT* updating Java worked. I have no idea why Dreamweaver launched and worked like a charm ONCE. I had no trouble with it the entire time I was working in it. However, I exited the program...and I haven't been able to launch it since. The beach ball has returned. Any other ideas?
Loads of times. Adobe got involved at one point yesterday. They figured out it wasn't Dreamweaver by way of setting up a new user. Dreamweaver worked just fine for the new user. I've been trying to eliminate conflicts, but it's going to take me years at this rate with everything I have installed.
If moving to the new user account is not really practical, try the solutions mentioned in this article to see if you can correct the issue with Dreamweaver that exists in your original account:
