    Dreamweaver very slow loading document / crashing

    jasonh31314251 Level 1

      Ever since the Dreamweaver CC 2015 update, I've been experiencing this problem every time Dreamweaver is launched.  Launch the program from the quick launch icon, and the program loads just fine. However, upon opening the first file (html, php, css, etc.) the program freezes up for about 30-45 seconds with one of two things eventually happening: The file will open and everything will be fine or the program will fail to respond and crash.  This happens every single time since the 2015 update, and never had the issue before.



      Running Windows 7, 16gb ram and SSD with plenty of storage space.

          Can you please share your crash logs ?


          Create crash logs on win –


          You need to add these entries in registry.


          1. Go to run, type regedit and enter. This will open Registry Editor.
          2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting->Right Click->New->Key. New key named "New Key #1" will be created. Rename it to LocalDumps. Add two entries in LocalDumps
            1. Right click on LocalDumps->New->Expandable String Value (REZ_EXPAND_SZ). Double click on the  entry created and add value name : DumpFolder and value data : %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps.
            2. Right click on LocalDumps->New->DWORD (32 bit) Value(REG_DWORD). Double click on the value created and add value name : DumpType and value data :1


          Next time when the application crashes you will find the crash dump at C:\Users[UserName]\AppData\Local\CrashDumps. Dumps will be created only in case of crash and not hang.
