            Please do the following -

            1. find the DW executable (in Program Files/Macromedia on Windows, and under
            Applications on Mac).
            2. Right click and get Properties, or click and Get Info.
            3. In Properties, click on the Version tab, and then please report what
            version number you see there - it will look like this -

            6.x.xxxx

            On the Mac, this info would be under the General category > Version:

            With that information we can diagnose why you are having this problem.

              Murray the version is
              6.0.1714.0

                I was afraid that would be the case.

                > 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.

                Who knows what that software has done to your system....

                Sorry I can't help more than that.

                    Good luck. I'd worry about what else was in that package, and I'd have words
                    with the seller. Hope you didn't pay too much for it....

                    We can still help you with DW4!
