    Help Problem

    PoyoLoco
      Hey peoeple,

      I just recently downloaded the Dreamweaver MX 6.1 updater and when I try to pick the folder to install it in, it says "Severe: Ths folder does not contain Dreamweaver MX". Please help.

      Thanks a lot,
      Loco

            You have to expect more than 10 minutes to pass before someone replies. Are you sure you have a legal copy of Dreamweaver? If I recall correctly there was something about beta versions and hacked copies of Dreamweaver that prevented the upgrade to 6.1. Make sure your copy of Dreamweaver is legit.

              Find dreamweaver.exe in your program files hierarchy, right click, and
              choose PROPERTIES > Version. Tell me what build number you see there.

                  Yep - that one is illegal.

                  > The build is 6.0.1714.0

                  ANN: 6.1 Updater on build 1714

                  Macromedia has been working with our customers to track down the source
                  of problems a minority of users have been having with the ... Dreamweaver MX
                  6.1 updater. Several users reported that the updater incorrectly indicates
                  that it cannot find the Dreamweaver
                  application or executable file in the specified folder and doesn't perform
                  the update. While researching this, we found that there were several
                  different causes for similar issues. Those solutions are all detailed in the
                  technote at:
                  http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamweaver/ts/documents/dmx_updater_issues.htm.

                  However, we also noticed that many customers were trying to update a build
                  of Dreamweaver MX, 1714, that was never legally released to the public or
                  made available for purchase. The release version of Dreamweaver MX 6.0 is
                  build 1722, and build 1714 was only released to a small group of beta
                  testers under a non-disclosure agreement. Beta testers received the final
                  build of Dreamweaver MX at the completion of the beta program.

                  Because build 1714 is not a commercial release, it cannot be updated and
                  should not be used for any purpose as it is not a legally licensed version
                  of Dreamweaver MX. To purchase a copy of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, visit
                  our online store at: http://dynamic.macromedia.com/bin/MM/store/US/home.jsp

                  Thanks to all customers who provided detailed information that enabled us to
                  track down the installer issues much more quickly than we could without your
                  help.
