DW CS3 on Vista crashes with one file

Feb 27, 2013 6:40 AM

Tags: #cs3 #vista #crashes #dw

This just started. DW opens every other file in the site, opens all files in other sites, open this particular file on other computers, but crashes on this pc (Vista) with "Dreamweaver has stopped working." I checked the whole "8192 file size" situation and that's not it. I did change the CSS file size anyway, just in case, but it didn't work. The size was 25,088 and I changed it to 25, 095. I deleted the WinFileCache[anything].dat file, and still have the same problem with only one file on this computer only.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

dk

    Can you put that file which crashes DW to your server or something and give us a link to it? Or at the very least, copy & paste the code from that file by using another text editor such as  Notepad++?

    I'm assuming the file is saved as .php, not .html?

     

    There are a few improper PHP tags in your code as well.

    It could be a simple file corruption.

     

    Have you tried copying the code to something like Notepad, then creating a new file in DW, pasting the code from Notepad into it and saving over the old file?

    DK, can you try clearing your cache? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811

    DK, yes, the DAT file (even the folder) will be checked on program boot, if it is not found, DW will automatically re-create one.

     

    The folder - yes, that sometimes helps. Nothing will go wrong if you delete the folder in entirety. It will be re-created. It's like purging your cache/ cookies. Well, close to that!

    Can you use Windows' Event Viewer to check for Crash reports for Dreamweaver? I'm sure there will be many as you've had trouble with this file a few times.

     

    Please copy & paste that here for us to review. Follow instructions here to open Event viewer - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/open-event-viewer

    Can you try re-building your Site Cache?

    Can you comment out all remote files (including jQuery from Google CDN, remote images, etc...) with a plain text editor (Notepad or something) and then try opening the file in DW? If it opens, we know something from a remote link is causing the issue - we can rule out possibilities.

    Yes it will. But again, wanted to find out the behavior of this particular DW instance.
