You could just search the knowledges base, could you not? That DW issue is perfectly documented along with other launch issues --> http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/832/cpsid_83223.html.
none of the documentation in the knowledge base solves application crashing with "NSInvalidArgumentException" as soon as they start up. I also try to disable extension and clear preferences but the problem still persist.
It might be that my CS5 is an upgrade and I am still keeping CS4... which is allowing me to keep working at least.
I tested running the same apps with a new user and all seemed to work fine.
I reinstalled the CS5 apps with preferences and I also repaired disk permissions but are still crashing in the previous user account.
I wonder what else to try. Only Photoshop works out of the CS5 Web Collection.
Are you using any special characters in that username? as those may be the culprit. If it is so can you please share with us those characters so that others can avoid using those characters.
Also have you tried deleting preferences and cache of that user?
I found the problem !.
I am developing a Panel plugin for Photoshop under OS X using Flash Builder.
In the CS_SDK_Guide.pdf documentation, at page 18 it reads:
"4. Change value for the key PlayerDebugMode to 1 to enable or to 0 to disable the debug mode."
to the file <user>/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.CSXS2Preferences.plist
This is suppose to trigger the debug mode, but apparently does nothing except crashing at least Dreamweaver and FireWorks. In Illustrator it just kills the refreshing. To Photoshop and Flash it does nothing, apparently.
I play with that added value to the .plist file and I can confirm that it is responsible to cause all that issues.
IF you are experiencing similar issues and you are not adding any additional flag or value to the com.adobe.CSXS2Preferences.plist file, then you need to find the cause somewhere else.. but if it is just for a specific logged user, the best guess is that you have some adobe related corrupted file in the <user>/Library/Preferences/ folder.
Thanks to everyone for the support.
I wish adobe release more updated documentation about SDK development for CS5.
