  2. Stephan Bernhard says:

    thanks so much for your article.
    same happened here after upgrading to WIN 10.
    all other, older recipes like deleting the cache file or renaming the config folder didn’t work.
    so finally your recipe worked for me.

    I have same problem but I have 64 bit window please tell me what should I do?

      I have 64 bit windows and still this worked for me. If this does not work for you then it is an installation error. Try a fresh clean install of dreamweaver.

    Dear Rooturaj
    A very big thank you,
    Firstly I tried to reinstall Dreamweaver CS3, but without success.
    Then I found your web page and now it works normally

  20. Mathilde says:

    Hi, It doesn’t work for me : it’s saying “the protection of the Windows resources doesn’t succeed to start the repair’s service” What can I do? I work with Dreamweaver CS6 and since I have put Windows 10 I am not able to open it !!!!! I am very angry πŸ˜‰

  21. Chris Perabo says:

    I rarely leave messages or thank yous, but this is truly terrific. I had already resigned myself to not being able to use Dreamweaver, and this was my hail mary. I opened it as soon as it hit 100% verified, and voila!!! A miracle! Thank you, thank you.

  29. Sheri Strite says:

    I am so scared to upgrade and fail things fail. So am grateful for this information. Is this likely to work for Acrobat Pro from the CS5 suite too? Many thanks!
