Cant open attached files Dreamweaver CC update August

Tags: #file #dreamweaver #update #open #cc

I installed the brandnew DW CC update from today (August, 27th, 2013) and now I cannot open the connected files any more in this subtab which shows all related (attached files), for instance the css file. Opening a file by its own is working.

Its always prompting that the cetrain file is not in the local directory and if I want to get it. Trying this also throws an error message.

 

The css file is working properly, it is stored locally and I can open it on its own.

It seems to be a bug with the new update?

 

Regards, Dennis

    I tried the same at my side in the updated version and its working fine.

    Did you try resetting the preferences.

     

    Refer the below to do so:

    @graugans-designs :

     

    Thank you for bringing this issue to our notice .

     

    We noticed that files from such sites are not being previewed in Google Chrome too . Similar to the ones at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1150112?tstart=30 We are investigating this issue with respect to the new CEF itegration in DW and will keep you guys posted on the developments on this front.

    Hi

    Since upgrading to Dreamweaver 13.1 on my mac I'm having a similar issue. Any of the defined sites that are on our local shared server will not allow me to view related files but ones on my hard drive are fine. If I hover over the related file the link looks fine but I receive the message '<filename> is not on the local disk'.

     

    I have no error message when I open Dreamweaver and I have reset Dreamweavers' preferences. I've also re-defined all my site to no avail. I don't have similarly named folders on either my local drive or the shared server.

     

    Hope someone can help

    Thanks

    Vanessa

    Copying from the known issues doc http://helpx.stage.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/known-issues-dreamweaver-1 31.html

     

    • On Mac, if a folder in any volume has the same name as the volume:
      • You cannot open the related files of a Dreamweaver site.
      • The Welcome screen of Dreamweaver does not load.

    Change the folder name and retry.

    Rename the folders in the share. Try accessing a completely different folder from the share and see if you can see the related files

     

    IF you do not get me , Lets say you have a share at Some server/users/username/  which you have as your site root  and find tthat you cannot open the related files , try accessing some server/public/some file. yoiu will see that the trelated files will open up fine .
