Where did you get your DW CS6? Is it a purchased version from the Cloud or a trial version from the Adobe web site?
Do you have Service Pack 3 for XP?
When you launch DW the first time, are you running as Administrator?
Thanks for the quick reply, I downloaded the trial version from adobe, yes running sp3 and I wasnt running as the root administrator but as an admin
Maybe you got an incomplete download.
Try downloading again.

Errrmmmm I am currently doing my 5th download, of the product, I think I am going to admit defeat, where can I get a copy of cs5 so I can reinstall that, then I will have the problm of my serial key as stupid me has run the Suite cleaner 3 times now
I don't know. You may have to call customer support. Adobe takes down the old product versions when new ones come out.
As far as DW CS6 goes, I'm assuming there may be an issue with your cache file which is blocking CS6 from starting. Can you try out the steps listed here and see if there's any progress: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811
If you still want to revert to CS5, here's how you can.
Adobe doesn't take down the old product files - they're very much present on their servers, just not listed in frontend.
Go to this webpage: http://prodesigntools.com/all-adobe-cs5-direct-download-links.html
Read the Instructions VERY carefully and proceed to downloading CS5 Trial from the link listed. Your download will happen from adobe's web server, not from a 3rd party.
Once this is done, you'll have the trial version of CS5 with you. Once installed, you can use your old CS5 serial key to get it up and running in no time.
Let us know how it goes.
I am not a happy bunny I have spent most of the day installing CS6 and yet it still does not load.
Sorry to hear of your problems. There is also a dedicated forum for installation problems: http://forums.adobe.com/community/download_install_setup. It might be worth posting there to see if anyone can help. It's frequented by a lot of Adobe employees.
