Whenever I try to open Macromedia Dreamweaver, it crashes and gives me a message like this:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error
C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 3\Dreamweaver.exe
abnormal program termination

What can I do?

Thanks so much!

I'm in no way a Windows problem-solving expert, but it seems some dll (or other file) is either missing, corrupted or no longer the correct version. My solution is: uninstall Dreamweaver and reinstall it.

Other than that, look if the error message contains some hexadecimal code, and google that code. Or see Macromedia technical support pages.

(But maybe I should ask first: is your copy legit?)

Good luck!

I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it until Kingdom Come.

Legit hrm... now what is legit. [Razz] Well, the legitimacy did not change from when I first installed it and it worked, and one day it bust and never worked again.

Well, the legitimacy may be important in the way that it entitles you to technical support. Usually. Also, I am aware that some warez or software using a "shared" authorization codes can be disabled by its maker. I don't know if it applies to Macromedia software, though. But that's partly why I asked.

Going on with my limited Windows problem-solving knowlege, my next question is: what have you installed between the last time Dreamweaver worked and the first time it crashed, and have you tried uninstalling it? (I guess so; for what I can see, you are no beginner at this game either.)

Now, someone may want to confirm wether Windows will still overwrite a newer version of a DLL when installing a software using an older one. If not, that could be why reinstalling doesn't work. On the other hand, I have a faint memory of reading somewhere that the newest versions of Windows can have many versions of the same DLL and keep track of which software needs which. I readily admit I could be wrong.

Other possible things you could do: test your hard drive for bad blocks. Can you check if your OS was corrupted in any way? Maybe Dreamweaver is trying to access a common library (of little or no use to other software) installed by the OS and can't read it.

All of this can be resumed to a simple "I have no idea of what is wrong," so I'm merely thinking "aloud" hoping someone may catch a glimpse of a solution and expand it into a full-fledged one.

Again, good luck!
