You are running Win XP with Service Pack 3 installed?
Has anyone ever successfully installed Dreamweaver CS6 under WinXP Pro?
I have and I have had no problems so far. The only thing is I don't get any updates these days but I guess there aren't any.
For CC you need Windows 7 or Windows 8 so forget about it until you get a new machine.
When you say your XP install had no USER programs installed, was this a clean install of xp or a factory install?
I ask this as I had a similar issue a few years ago and Dreamweaver CS5 would not run properly on my ACER with their empowering software installed.
As soon as I uninstalled that it worked just fine.
If it were a clean install from the XP Pro disc without any add-ons from a factory install then that shouldn't be the problem.
Hopefully you get it resolved.
