There was an update to Fireworks yesterday, and since I did the update, Dreamweaver CS6 is not working. DW gets stuck at "Loading Site Cache" and it freezes with a blank gray screen. I have to force quit Dreamweaver. It won't load.
I tried clearing up the "MacFileCache-<randomString>.dat" files, but it still won't work.
All my other CS6 apps work fine. Any ideas?
Also, I notice that when the Adobe Software Updater comes up to remind me of updates, I am know required to log into a Creative Cloud account. Why is this? I am not a CC monthly subscriber. I use CS6.
I am on Mac OSX 10.7.5 on a MacPro computer.
Thank you in advance for your help.
For Issue 1 :
For Issue 2:
From CS6 release, its mandatory to login with your Adobe Id either to Install a fresh product or install any updates.Earlier you used to login with your Adobe id and Password on Adobe Application Manager which shows the updates.Now you would be getting the updates for CS6 and CC through the new Creative Cloud Application installed on your computer.
Thank for the reply bgupta16
I do remember signing up for the FREE version of the CC when it was first available. I was just curious. I really don't need it nor want it at this time.
How can I make it so that I am not part of the CC at all. I just want to use CS6 without any CC log-ins or requirements. Do I need to re-install CS6 from scratch?
What do I need to delete or change on my computer so that I just get the regular Adobe Updater as needed? Just like it used to be before.
CC is released on Jun 17.. Did you downloaded a trial on or after that??
You need to uninstall the Creative Cloud Application and install the Adobe Application Manager.
1. To uninstall CC App. Go to Applications < Adobe Creative Cloud < Uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud.
2. Restart the machine.
3. Download the Adobe Application Manager from here and install it.
The application manager situation is solved. Thank you!
Regarding Dreamweaver CS6, I followed your steps, and when I started Dreamweaver CS6, I got the message "Updating the site cache - Counted 572 HTML, 870 total." and it gets stuck there. Its been over an hour now, and nothing has happened.
What else do you think this can be?
Have you tried rebooting your computer after cleaning the preferences?
Most probable reason for this is when the preferences are not cleared properly.
Also, the updating of Site Cache depends on the number of files in the site..
One thing I tried was to create a new user log-in on my Mac for testing this.
When I started Dreamweaver CS6 under my new user log-in, it started with no problems.
It must be some corrupted Dreamweaver file associated with my main user log-in.
What kind of file or files can this be??
I'm having the exact same issue as billhdz.
First, DW would freeze on updating the site cache so I disabled that in the Site-settings. However when I go to edit a Template-page and save it (choosing to update all documents that use the template in question), the process of scanning through the site starts. I will sometimes get past the "Counting"-phase only to get stuck on "Scanned X of Y", where the process seems to stall at any one of the first 10 files (at random). I have tried moving the files it chokes on out of the site directory, but the process just seems to find another file to stall on every time...
I have followed all the advice given in this article, and more. I have also deleted all extended file attributes in OS X (Mavericks) and set uniform file attributes to all directories and files in the site folder (permission 755 = drwxr-xr-x) in case DW was getting hung up on permission-issues.
I see that the last post here involved creating another user on OS X, but I was hoping perhaps billhdz (or someone else) would have some input on this now that it's been a few months?
Has anyone solved this issue? I have the very same problem and I've tried all of the above recommendations (except for the new user) without success including uninstalling the app and prefs and reinstalling. My CC version of Dreamweaver works fine, but I can't get CS6 to launch. Please help!
Yeah, well... no. I gave up in the end and stopped using Dreamweaver.
Tell you what I did: re-did my website to use a PHP-based template, using Sublime 2 (code editor for Mac OSX) to maintain it. In the end I think it was worth the effort.
