What version of DW are you using?
Do you get an error when you try opening it?
DW C 2014.1
What happens when you try to open it?
A box comes up saying
Adobe Dreamweaver CC 2014.1 cannot be opened because of a problem.
Check with the developer to make sure Adobe Dreamweaver CC 2014.1
works with this version of Mac OS X. You may need to reinstall the application.
I think I will re install it and see how I go
You should be able to install and run DWCS6 on your current OS though.
I'm not sure if you can install the Creative Cloud Desktop APP, but if you can/have, you can go to the Apps tab, scroll down and click Filters & Previous versions to turn the installation icons into dropdown menus. That would allow you to choose DWCS6 under your current subscription.
Though, the CC App shouldn't have let you install CC2014 with your current OS, so I'm guessing you got a hold of a direct download link?
How do I go about increasing my Mac OS X from 10.6.8
You should be able to get OS updates through Apple's website.
I have no idea what hardware requirements there might be making that jump though. You'll want to verify everything with Apple before you start downloading and installing OS changes from them.
I searched for Dreamweaver & downloaded it. It was version CC 2014.1.
It downloaded successfully but I'm unable to open it.
There was no Dreamweaver CS6 available.
I'm now trying to instal Creative Cloud desktop but it is taking so long to instal??
I have removed Dreamweaver CC 2014.1 from my application folder but it is still
in my Adobe app list as being updated and installed?
Is there another way I can access Dreamweaver CS6?
I need help
It would make sense that you can't open it, having the wrong OS. I'm thinking the CC Desktop app probably requires a later OS as well.
I only have a the link for DWCS6 Perpetual License, the Cloud version is different.
Maybe one of the Adobe reps on the forums could chime in with the direct download link for it.
