Why does Dreamweaver CC keep crashing!!!

Dreamweaver CC keeps crashing!!!

Randomly,  Dreamweaver CC pops up error message.

"Adobe Dreamweaver is not responding" with 3 option.

1. "Check for solution and close program" or 2. "Close program" or 3. "Wait for the progeam to respond". I selected the "Wait" option a couple times. Waited for over 15 minutes and it never recovered. The best option left was to  "Check for solution and close program". The program closed and I lost all my unsaved work. This happens all the time. At least 2-3 times in a 6 hour session. About 6 pages open and doing nowing out of the ordinary. Long time Dreamweaver user.. Nothing much else running in the background. 6 month old laptop and it used to happen on my last laptop.


I'm only working with standard html files with arial font, not {}, not Fluid Grid, and no media queries is css.


Been working on this for over 6 months. Thought CC would get it fixed. The msvcr100.dll is the original version. Double checked. Been deleting the DW cache regularly.. 


Search all adobe support including this one:


Additionally it appears windows 8 is store my adobe files here. C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Temp\WERE78D.tmp

    Having the exact same problem here, randomly doing the same crash when I'm changing code and it updates the design view. (Seemingly)

    Templates are not really meant to support more than about 50 pages.    When your site  exceeds that threshold, it's time to start using server-side technologies like SSIs and/or Database driven content.  This will significantly reduce the strain on DW and your local computer resources.


    See Server-Side Includes

    In addition to what Nancy O. recommends (which I support), your post makes it sound as if you have multiple templates for this site, and perhaps even nested templates. Are either of those true?

    As a test, create a new, blank html document (no templates).  SaveAs test.html.  Edit HTML and CSS.  Does DW crash during any of this?

    I have canceled my CC account. I or should I say, your customers should not have to troubleshoot your software that we are paying for. I urge others that are having problems to search these forums as they may just be chasing their tails trying to resolve the Dreamweaver No Response issue.

    Type in Dreamweaver crashing in these forums and find the thread (Side by Side). This is just one of the  problems I have along with others. They are saying they have a fix for side by side and it will be released with the next release of Dreamweaver which they also say they don't know when it will come out. What if this does not fix the crashing?

    Hi Alaska Guide,


    Thank you for your inputs. It will help us in strengthening our internal systems. We are sad to see you go, but I urge you to trial version of the next update when it is released and see if your problems were fixed. That way, you can reconsider your options.

    Hi batteryboy1,


    Rest assured we don't cancel anyone's account because of their criticism of our products. The CC allows us to fix bugs and provide features much faster than boxed versions for which you would have to wait for close to a year and half for some of the fixes.


    If there is a bug you feel strongly about, use the form to let us know. You could also share information with me after you have posted the bug so that I can follow up with the team later.

    And I thought that I was the only one!!!

    Since moving to CS5.5 and Windows 7, now 8. I experience frequent freezes. I click the close button, end session and reload and start where I left off. In addition I have to save frequently so that the lost data is minimalised. Have looked to move to another product but there does not appear to be a direct competitor. 

    I have about 20 sites for customers which are a mix of .asp and .php. I have recently moved to .php because my hosting company is ending support for .asp connections. I have also moved to MySQL. Trying to get .asp to connect with MySQL is a nightmare compared to php, yet another reason to move across but .asp did not really give me any of these new problems, freezing, very slow data connections.

    Have tried the usual fixes offered on the forums, but have to put up with the freezing.

    Perhaps Adobe should be writing to all its users (at least those with registered accounts) and getting some idea of the scale of the problem?
