    Dreamweaver on Vista

    Has anyone managed to get Dreamweaver MX 2004 working on a Vista machine? This one gets as far as the splash screen then quits without warning

    Works fine on my Vista computer, can't say I had any problems installing or using it.

    We are using Dreamweaver CS3 here... This version works fine (You need to update it first though).

    Aye - CS3 works fine.

    Most everything works on vista once the magic "run as administrator" is clicked - could tick emulate xp mode for kicks too.

    Hope that helps.

    I had this problem when I had Vista installed at home. Initially Adobe just shrugged their shoulders and commented that MX isn't designed for Vista and you should upgrade to the latest version, however...

    it's to do with Microsoft Groove (part of Office 2007) which conflicts with Dreamweaver. I removed Groove and the problem went away.

    Dreamweaver doesn't like Vista - Trinus Technologies Inc.

    I've got Office 2007 installed but not sure about Microsoft Groove. I'll check tonight.

    Thanks for the info.

    We've got MX2004 running with Vista here but like kesomir has suggested, that's only through running it via Administrator account.

    I haven't had chance to investigate it much but I don't think there's an official fix available from Adobe...

    I tried everything to get MX2004 running but it refused to work so I installed Dreamweaver CS3 and that didn’t work either! Searching I found a reference to a piece of software installed on Acer laptops which has caused problems before so after removing it (I can’t remember it’s name but it’s something to do with securing drives) MX 2004 and CS3 both worked fine.
