    Dreamweaver CS5 won't load

    JamesBillings

      I have been using Dreamweaver CS5 and now recently it will not load. When I try to open dreamweaver all I get in the menu bar is "Dreamweaver" under that "Services, Hide Dreamweaver, Hide Other, Hide All, Quit". Can some one help. I reinstalled Dreamweaver to try and fix this to no prevail.

          Delete the preferences in /Users:James:Preferences:Adobe:Dreamweaver CS5

            I find no adobe folder in preferences. But i do find::

             

            com.adobe.dreamweaver-9.0.plist

            Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 Prefs

             

             

            I tried trashing both, but it did not fix the problem. All it did was ask me to pick another browser.

             

            Unless there's an easy fix I won't bother reinstalling. Regarding the comment from the Adobe salesman, I don't use DW enough to warrant buying a new version for $200. DW 3 works fine, it just won't load the help menu, which also works fine when I load it in Preview.

             

            I know enough about computers to opine that there is probably a solution to this without having to reinstall. Like renaming the help file, or maybe someone telling me where to place it in the file hierarchy. Actually, I tried placing it in 4 other places. No luck.
