I would imagine that the problem is the fact that you're on a Mac and you
don't have a server to render the ASP pages. Does the ASP code actually
work? Do you have a testing server set up in your site definition?
Traditionally, Windows users doing ASP use Internet Information Server
locally as the testing server for the site .. without it, the ASP code
doesn't know what to do.

The advantage of CS4 would be the new Live View which renders like a browser
within Dreamweaver itself. But once again, with ASP pages, the testing
server has to come into play and that is probably the problem on your

Thanks for the quick reply. I figured that was the problem, not having an ASP local server. That's why I deleted the ASP reference from the code and resaved as HTML. Thinking that once my edits were done I could just paste back in the ASP references that I cut save it as ASP and FTP it back and it should work. However even after I strip the code of the ASP references it is still really slow.
That seems to me to be a very strange solution. You need to have a testing
server that recognizes ASP .. now your functionality is lost. I don't
understand why you don't need that.

I am having a similar issue as well. For me I have found that embedded vbscript within a option input tag is causing it. Maybe there's an issue with embedding code into input tags.

I have been working on ASP for years, my testing server is either my
online server or another in house server, I barely ever use a local one.
There are known issues with using ASP Command Server Behaviours that
cause Dreamweaver to crash, the resolution is to use Recordsets instead.
If you are having problems with ASP and form fields crashing Dreamweaver
then you are suffering from the Daylight Time Savings bug that corrupts
the cache file. Its been mentioned loads on this forum, just do a search
and your solution will become present.
If that doesn't fix it, save your asp page as a .txt, upload it and post
a link to it so that we can look at it.
