    MX 2004 on MacBook Pro?

    scottishwildcat
      Anyone managed to get Dreamweaver MX 2004 (Academic edition, if it matters) running on the new MBPs under Rosetta? I've read of other people seemingly getting it to run, but for me it just bounces in the dock a few times and dies:

      Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
      Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x00000000

      I can't afford to upgrade to a newer version of DW, so at the moment I'm resorting to running it under XP in Parallels-- except that there it won't accept my registration (I did de-authorise it on my old PowerBook first, and although both Mac and Windows versions are on the DVD, there's only one serial number), so after 30 days I'm in trouble :/

          Don't know the answer to this, but it should work. Your best bet is
          probably to contact Adobe technical support.

          The Mac and Windows versions of Dreamweaver (and all Macromedia/Adobe
          programs) are distributed under separate licences. The serial number for
          a Mac version is invalid on a Windows OS and vice-versa.

            That's what others have told me too, but I'm not convinced, in the case of the OEM Academic version at least... both versions ship on the same DVD with a single non-specific serial number supplied, and I get the green checkmark on the Windows version when I enter that number on the registration screen just as I do on the Mac version.

            Anyway, all vaguely irrelevant as I don't particularly want to use the Windows version anyway... will contact Adobe tech support as you suggest, but I'd be very surprised if they don't just tell me that MX 2004 isn't supported on Intel machines (because, well, it isn't...)

            Thanks,
            Calum.
