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...)
