Dreamweaver MX and Vista


Seems there are a lot of people asking this and no one has an answer ?

Im using Dreamweaver MX on a vista laptop (Web design course) but when I try to create a table the program says I have a sharing violation in the usersappdata oamingmacromediadreamweavermxconfigurationobjectscommon able.htm

Some say delete the commond dir and recreate it which works once, then gives you the message again?

Any idea how to stop this ?

I have full admin rights on the laptop and the sub dir is read only but wont change back to read write ?

Re: Dreamweaver MX and Vista

Very simple actually.

I made a tutorial that shows how to fix it here:

I've written a few on this before, but this seems to be the best fix. You more than likely won't get an answer because there are still alot of people using XP and they don't have this issue.

The fix is basically this: going to the program root folder and finding and modifying the function for inserting a table (which is either or both c:\program files\macromedia\dreamweaver mx\configuration\objects\common and/or c:\users\your user name\appdata\macromedia\dreamweaver mx\configuration\objects\common) This file happens to be a simple html file, so it's easy to tweak.

The tutorial's URL I gave above will give you all the details.

Hope that helps!

Re: Dreamweaver MX and Vista

Here's a solution I've seen in many forums, that worked for me.

  • Find the application file
(on my computer it's here C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004)

  • Right click on the app file, and choose "Properties"
  • Click on the "Compability" tab
  • Compatibility mode - change to Windows XP
  • Privilege level - click on Run this program as an administrator
  • Click "Apply"
Dreamweaver runs fine for me after doing this

Dear Aaron,

First of all, you should go to your antivirus settings, then choose
"Scan accessed files", click "Advanced". Click then "Exclude path from scan"
and choose folder where your Dreamweaver site is stored.
I think, this issue must be included in both antivirus definition and Adobe docs.

This happens when the program is shared by two applications and a sharing conflict arises. If you are using another antivirus go its settings.

Kindly press solved if this solution was helpful

I want to add a song to web page with control and its asking for plugin? how do I make this song work on web page using dreamweaver?

When you embed sound in a webpage, the person viewing that sound has to have the right program to play it. Some audio files require a player plugin in order for this to work. If you are just trying to include a normal website sound file such as a wav file, the browser will know what to do. Also works for avi files. You can't put a song from a cd onto a webpage. You have to upload the song to your server, then you simply use the href or embed tag in your html code to make it play.

Windows Vista and Office Pro 2003

hi, yes you can install office 2003 while you already have office 2007. you just need to change the installation directory when you launch the setup for office 2003. change it into something apart from what office 2007 already is installed in. so what you're trying to say is that you should be entitled to an upgrade to office 2007 if office 2003 doesn't work? i would maybe think so... but no solid answer for that one.
