DreamWeaver CS5.5 "quits unexpectedly" when I try to use LiveView

Jun 5, 2013 5:07 PM

I saw a lot of discussions on this topic, so I tried some of the things that worked for other sufferers:

 

I removed and restored preferences.

I un-installed and re-installed DreamWeaver CS5.5

 

These had no effect.

 

Also,

I have no browser plug-ins to remove.

I have no HP software.

 

I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.8.4 and DreamWeaver CS 5.5.

 

Anybody got anything else for me to try? 

 

 

I really miss GoLive ...

Larry

    Have you tried clearing the cache file?

     

    Don't know if it would have any affect on this, but it is something that would not get affected on a plain old reinstall (you would need to use the cleaner tool IIRC)...

    Nope, not the browser cache, the Dreamweaver Cache file.

     

    Make sure to follow the directions in the link I posted above so you don't delete the wrong file/folder.

    One other thing to try:  Go to View > Live View Options > Disable JavaScript.

    Hi otmfiddler,

     

    I am asking around to see if anyone has a solution to offer. Between the experts and me, we have pretty much covered the usual suspects.

     

    Thanks,

    Preran

    Quit Dreamweaver. Find all the files listed below and move to desktop or delete them.

     

    • /Users/Your User Name/Library/Preferences/Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 Prefs
    • /Users/Your User Name/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Dreamweaver.11.5.plist
    • /Users/Your User Name/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5.5
    • /Users/Your User Name/Library/Application Support/Caches/ com.adobe.Dreamweaver.11.5
    • Macintosh /Library/Preferences/ Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5.5 Prefs (if any)
    • Macintosh /Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Dreamweaver.11.5.plist

     

    Thanks

    Hi otmfiddler,

     

    The same condition came also out of me.

    After OSX10.8.4 UPDATE.

    ( MacBookPro Early2011 , Dreamweaver CS6 )

    In my case, it was repaired in reset of PRAM.

    Reset my PRAM, and it did not solve my problem.

     

     

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Resetting PRAM went out with OS 9 and "Classic" envorinment, niether of which will work with Intel processors. It's a useless step anymore, much more easily accomplished by rebooting.
