My dreamweaver in CS5.5 shows no info in the welcome screen how do I get it back?
Subject line edited by moderator to make it clearer
It is go to Dreamweaver > Preferences > General > Document options: enable
"Show Welcome Screen" on the mac Yes Ive done that the welcome screen
shows when I open DW but there is nothing inside to click on no icons at
I work on a MacBook Pro
because I can't reproduce your error message I suggest you contact Adobe at the following page:

Please use chat, I only had the best experiences.
Please try re-creating the preferences for Dreamweaver CS5.5. Follow the document given below.
Do let us know if this resolves the issue. If it does not please answer the below queries .
1) Does it ever worked for you? Since when do you have the issue?
2) Are you on a roaming user profile?
3) Did you made any changes on your MAC?
Try to run the DW in the root user account.
Refer the below link to enable the root user account:
Also, please confirm what is th screen resolution you are using?
Can you try unchecking 'Show Welcome Screen' in your DW Preferences. Save & Restart DW. The Welcome screen should be gone now. Now, go back to Preferences, enable 'Show Welcome Screen' in DW Preferences, restart DW and see if it shows up?
Did you also try clearing your cache? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811
Hi Sudarshan, that was the first thing I tried by checking and unchecking the radio button... no luck though...
oh and the cache thread option did not work either ... can't seem to find the files mentioned in the forum
On Mac OS, to go to 'Library' folder, from Finder, Click 'Go' on top menu bar > Go To Folder (Cmd + Shift + G shortcut) > Type in this:
Now, navigate to Application Support:Adobe:Dreamweaver CSx:<language>:Configuration as mentioned in the forum thread I linked you to in Reply #13. Follow instructions given in that thread.
Okay, as crazy as it may sound, did you update Flash Player recently? Welcome Screen in DW relies on Flash and may fail sometimes based on dependancy.
From your Finder window, go to Applications > Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 > Configuration > Content > Welcome > Flash. Locate 'welcome.swf'. Double click to see if it plays normally in Flash Player. If it does, the Flash player is fine and its probably a runtime load issue with DW itself.
If issue persists, try creating a new user account on your Mac OS, run DW from there to see if it loads.
Post back with results.
I solved the problem... I completly un-installed DW and just reinstalled it again... now everything is back to normal and very much operational...
Thankyou everybody for your help. I appreciate it very much.
