My Dreamweaver (CS 5.5) icon has a no entry sign on it and I get an error when trying to launch the application. When I log in as another user Dreamweaver works fine. This leads me to believe the issue is with my user account but how could I determine the exact cause of the fault. My Photoshop works fine, I have checked and Dreamweaver and Photoshop both have the same permissions. I have also tried re-installing and fixing drive permissions
iMac 3.1Ghz Intel core i3 8Gb RAM and a 250Gb hard drive
Mac OS 10.8.2
Adobe CS5.5 (Dreamweaver v18.104.22.16866)
Failing account is a network admin account
Working account is a local admin account
Any help would be greatly appreciated
The error message I get is "You can't open the application "Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5" because it is not supported on this type of Mac." Which doesn't make a lot of sense as it works when logged into another user on the same machine.
You get that error when you try to run PowerPC code on Intel machine without Rosetta. Obviously CS5.5 isn't PowerPC based, the possible reason is your Launch Service database is corrupt. If so, the command to reset the database is:
lsregister -kill -seed
Sorry, I did not get a chance to try out your lsregister -kill -seed suggestion. I had already started the process of creating a fresh user and copying the files over. A bit long winded but it resolved the issue. Thanks for all your help, it was very much appreciated.
