DW crashes everytime I search all files in the site.
I have tried:
I CANNOT use DW under these conditions! Please help! I'm on: version 12.2.v 6006
Does this happen only with 1 site or all sites within DW? If it is only on 1 site, have you defined your site properly?
Can you try trashing your cache to see if that helps: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811
Thanks for your reply. I have tried to trash my cache.... that didn't help. To your first point, this only started to occur with my current site (a revamp of a previous site). I will go back to the previous sites and try to search. the site settings were copied from there. Is there something specific that might not be defined properly?
Can you double, triple check your site definition settings to ensure they're all intact and the way its supposed to be?
Go to Site > Advanced > Recreate Site Cache to let DW recreate a cache for your site and then try to see if it persists.
I can check 10,000 times, but I don't know what "supposed to be" means. is there a document that lists required settings ? I'm not using all of the "features". I didn't find "recreate site cache", but I unchecked the cache option, and rechecked it, and it seemed to recreate.
I created a NEW site. The only fields that I touched are: "site name" and "local site folder". I am NOT using servers or version control, and in advanced tab, the "enable cache" was checked by default, and I left it that way. I did NOT configure the "default images folder" or the "site-wide media query file". Is this "intact and the way its supposed to be"? I am still crashing when searching all files in site (Note: searching selected text, current document, and open files does not crash).
Not the 'enable cache' in advanced tab.
My reply #4 was on the main Dreamweaver menu bar where you see File, Edit, etc... There, click on 'Site' then click on 'Advanced' and hit 'Recreate Site Cache'.
Ok, I tried that. When I unchecked and rechecked the cache option in site management, it looks to have done the same thing... either way, after recreating the site cache, I was able to search 3 times, then it crashed on the 4th.
So it worked 3 times. Then there's nothing wrong with your site definition/ config.
When you say it 'crashed' the 4th time, do you see a crash report/ error log that you can copy & paste here for us to review?
Also, does your site have any files that are read from a local network/ web server?
Thanks for your help!
To be clear, the app just becomes unresponsive. I suspect a crash log is created but i have been killing the log to get right back to work. Next time, ill find it and send it your way.
I am developing on a single Win7 machine running IIS7/php server.
Your #4 suggestion has definitely helped reduce the occurrence.
