    Upgrading from MX 6.0 to the CS3 is it worth it?

    D00mtrooper
      Long story short I have Dreamweaver MX 6.0 that I purchased back in 2003. I am curious to if I can upgrade to CS3 or purchase the full version. Right now I am trying to use 6.0 to create 4 sites that I own for a few projects. Any help would be appreciated.

          What OS, please?

          If Windows, find the DW executable in the Program
          Files/Macromedia/Dreamweaver MX folder, right click and select properties,
          and under the Version Tab, please tell us what version # you see.

          If Mac, find the DW executable under Applications : Macromedia : Dreamweaver
          MX, and do a Get Info on it. I believe the version is shown on that Get
          Info Panel.

          We need to know your version # to give you further suggestions.

            Sorry about that. I am using Windows XP right now and the version is 6.0.1714.0. I just recently got back into website building and doing this to start my own business.

              I was afraid of that.

              > 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.
