    Opening Fireworks from Dreamweaver CS5

    gregmccarthy Level 1

      I am trying to open Fireworks CS5 from within Dreamweaver CS5.


      When I do I get an error message that says that "Fireworks is unable to be launched or an error has occured"


      I am running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.


      When I originally tried to open Fireworks (either directly or from Dreamweaver) I got the following message:


      "Your user privileges do not allow Fireworks to update your registry. Launch and Edit with Dreamweaver will not work properly unitl Fireworks is launched while using Administrative privileges."


      I got the following advice - Try right-clicking on the Fireworks.exe icon, then select 'Properties', select 'Compatibility' and then under the section 'Privilege Level', put a tick in the box 'Run this program as administrator'.


      I have done what was suggested but now every time I open Fireworks I get the same Windows User Account Control message as follows:


      "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer" - Program name Fireworks. When I say yes the program opens OK.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.


      By the way everything works OK on my laptop running a Windows XP Pro 32 bit system.
