Problem after migrating to new Mac

Hi, I changed my Mac from an iBook to a new Mac Mini running 10.8.2

I had Dreamweaver installed from the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium. Version 9.0 Build 3481

Dreamweaver was working fine before I migrated all my files on old Mac to the new one.

Now when I launch DW I get a window with a question mark & another saying what version & build I have.

When I "Get Info' on DW3 in my applications folder size is 298,696,470 bytes (302.4 MB on disk) for 249 items in case that helps.

I thought to re-install DW from my instal disc.

Dragged old version to trash, then read the readme in the installer & put it back in Applications.

I tried to use the un-installer as directed but when I enter my password in "Set up"it says "Required resources are missing."


I thought to try to intall over the old version but when I start to install I get the same "Required resources are missing." message.

(Photoshop from the same suite is working fine, also Adobe Acrobat.

I'd also like to try Fireworks now I have an Intel Mac.)


How to proceed to get going again with DW?

    Sounds like a bad or incomplete installation to begin with.  Back up important files and run the cleaner.
