    Problem in dreamweaver cs3

      I am having a lot of problem using dreamweaver cs3. It always crashes whenever i write or copy a piece of code in it. It was alright from last couple of months but now it crashes whenever i start using it.

          you might be encountering the "Dreamweaver CS3 crashes after Daylight Savings Time ends" issue which is mentioned in this technote : http://www.adobe.com/go/kb402776

              well, I don´t know this extension and can´t help you. I was just looking at the iptsolutions.com website, and - apart from not seeing any information related to this extension - they say it´s a "Macromedia Dreamweaver" extension, though Dreamweaver CS3 is an Adobe product.

              That said, it might well be that their extensions have simply not been updated for being compatible with CS3, and that´s assumingly why it won´t work here -- however the recommendable way would be to always ask the extension developers, as they are the only ones who can provide first-hand anwers.

                  please post this "unrelated to ADDT" question either in the regular Dreamweaver forums or ask the the dwuser.com support folks: http://www.dwuser.com/flashslideshow/v3/support.php

                    Hi Gunter,
                    Yes you are right. I tried the debugger on dreamweaver 8 and it worked.
                    Is there any debugger in the market which is compatible with dreamweaver cs3??
                    I have got another problem, dreamweaver slow downs the system. At this time it doen't crash but its too slow. I am running it on vista os and the configuration is quite good.
                    Any suggessions?

                      this usually happens with dynamic forms containg lots of queries and other stuff -- the more fields e.g. an ADDT form has, the longer it takes DW to render the page in visual mode.

                        Hi Gunter;

                        I think Cartweaver PHP has got php debugger extension in it.
                        but i am not sure how effective is it.
                        check this link:

                          well, wouldn´t one have to buy Cartweaver to get this debugger ? The other question is whether this debugger will just debug Cartweaver sites, or if it´s an "overall" thingy that´s debugging code regardless of its origin.

                          However, I don´t think that any PHP debugger would help you solving your problem, as the generated code usually runs pretty fast in the browser respectively when executed by the server -- but you´re encountering a "rendering" issue with Dreamweaver "the bottleneck" CS3, and that´s a completely different story.

                            Hallo Gunter! I am still a student and have to learn a lot. I worked on CS3 and created flash buttons and imported them into dreamweaver. But they are not displaying in the browser. I've tested it on mozilla and IE. When I press play in dreamweaver they do show. What can be the problem?

                            Peace and Prosperity for 2008!

                              Hi Suzan,

                              ----

                              if this happens when viewing the page in question from your remote host, it might well be that you didn´t upload the flash button files.

                              Cheers,

                                Hey Adobe Experts,

                                I have been building a site in DW CS3. I opened up one of the the .html files today and found that all of the images that I linked into my page don't show up, and instead I get a broken link icon.
                                This problem occurs on every page of my site. I haven't moved my root folder, or adjusted my links at all, just opened the files.

                                Anyone have an idea of what might be wrong?

                                Thanks for your help,

                                JOHN

                                  Hi John,

                                  and you didn´t possibly move the images folder somewhere else ?

                                  Honestly, if something like this happens on all pages, it doesn´t happen without having changed something in your site´s directory structure

                                  Cheers,

                                        Hi Charles and Heather,

                                        it seems you´re posting your Dreamweaver/Flash related questions in the wrong forums -- these ones are all about the "Dreamweaver Developer Toolbox" extension, whereas your posts should rather be posted to the regular Dreamweaver forums.

                                        Cheers,

                                          Why not offer people help instead of sending them away? How difficult it is to sort through all that information in Dreamweaver Developer Toolbox for one simple little thing? Doesn't make sense. I also cannot view my slide show viewer when upload to a server. It works perfectly on my Local drive. I do not have any spaces in my files or forgot to upload my files. It simply does not work. Why would adobe make such a useless feature?

                                            Um, when ever I try and open my Dreamweaver CS3 it keeps crashing and I can't open it or nothing, it just pulls up the loading screen and then crashes. Can anyone help?
