Question about Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 ( Windows ) for PC (38040335)

Adobe dreamweaver does not start

I have installed Adobe Creative Suite 3 Web Premium onto my machine and with all those programs installed, the only one that does not 'open' is Dreamweaver.  It initializes this and that, and is stuck on 'initializing files' for a few minutes then says "Not Responding". It goes no further than that and promptly quits itself. How do I start this program up without wrecking the other Adobe programs or others I have on the machine? I have work/study to do and I was told that I have to use Dreamweaver.

    How do I disable unwanted started items & services from msconfig, and there was another user saying that they have the same problem and that their machine is a Acer Aspire 5920, well I have a Acer Aspire Extensa 5620. Oh, and by the way, I used a different account (Guest) and the same thing happened when I tried to start up Dreamweaver.

Solution to my problem to Dreamweaver 9 (cs3) suddenly stop working and will not start.
I was working on a website when Dreamweaver suddenly shut down and wouldn’t start again. Only the first flashscreen showed and the program shut down again. I have put a Spry into a table and the added a table row to that table. Dreamweaver shut down :-(

I did this to get it to work again:

1. I deleted the key for Dreamweaver 9 via RegEdit
(HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Adobe->Dreamweaver 9)

2. I renamed the Configurationfolder to Configuration Old
(Users>AppData->Roaming->Adobe->Dreramweaver 9-> Configuration)

3. Via the file system I removed the site I was working on and put it in another place on my harddrive. (I put in at the Desktop).
4. I restarted Dreamweaver. It worked!

    You can see how msconifg is done from this yooutube video at, make sure that you put a check on Flexnet licensing service in services tab or else other Adobe apps would stop working.

    Create a new admin account in ur system, do disk cleanup then try.

yes, dreamweaver 3 is quite updated but it may work better then the new one with some old computer. The newest dreamweaver release is dreamweaver CS. Here is macromedia page for it:

Do not confuse dreamweaver 3 with adobe creation suite 3. Adobe Creative suite 3 is the latest suite containing dreamweaver cs and all the latest software distributed Macromedia.
