I have never used this program before. EVER. I am trying to. But i just don't get it. I don't get PhotoShop either. If anyone out there speaks english and feels like showing me how to use this, and uses LogMeIn (to show me how. It's free and you don't have to install anything. Just a firefox add-on), email me at joshsnice(at)gmail

LogMeIn Firefox Add-on

If you email me, I will tell you how to set it all up. Or you can goto logmein.com

alexandrojv said...

Hey Josh, just go to http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/video_workshop/ it will teach you stuff about the programs, if it doesn't help let me know

JOSH the MIRROR guy! said...

@Bernat,
Do you use dreamweaver to make your blog?

martindrea said...

Error: 148:3
I can't open it!

Bernat said...

@JOSH
This blog has very basic editor included.
If somebody know how to edit blogspot xml template with Dreamweaver I would be very interested.

@martindrea
Where is error? extracting? launching?

JOSH the MIRROR guy! said...

Bernat said...

I have not other language folder, if somebody has Dreamweaver installed in another laguage...

Scud said...

Great work, Thanks!
I agree with Goran, Flash CS4 portabled on this way will be nice too :)

Jeff said...

JOSH the MIRROR guy! said...

Hope it helps.

I have downloaded the portable dreamweaver cs4 for a class that I am taking this Tuesday and I am not able to view in bridge or use the help menu. I would like to find out if I have everything that I need to take this class if anyone can provide feedback it would be a lifesaver. Thank YOU!

Bernat said...

This portable version don't include Bridge neither help.

Stefan said...

Bernat said...

German patch added. Thanks!

Rockman said...

Thanks for the program!

I'll be so grateful if you upload more languages (spanish).

Izzy said...

many thanks for the patch - well done !!!!

Genkiz said...

Please help this killed my valid cs3 design premium install. How could I undo?

Bernat said...

What did you mean by "kill"?
Registration or running?
Did you run design while dreamweaver portable was running?

The entire Adobe folder in AppData and Common Files is backup and restored
Look in these folder if remains folders Adobe-BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable
and rename in Adobe.

Genkiz said...

I got "licensing for this product has stopped" - please reinstall but change/remove doesn't work from controlpanel/addremove programs

I could find only this backup ( only common files/adobe/acrobat/activeX/ included)
"c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe-BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable"

FLEXnet Licensing Service was missing, i could reinstall with adobe licensing_service_patch and now ask for serial but separate sw doesnt work with the bundle code :(

Genkiz said...

Probably I cannot activate again with that code, I try to contact adobe to reset my license.

Genkiz said...

OOps I downloaded earlier, 2009.02.25 any difference?

Bernat said...

I'm talking about the latest portable I don't remember what was done by previous.
I forgot to notice an other folder in AppData (FLEXnet).
(on XP AppData is C:\Documents and Settings\Genkiz\Application Data\)
I you found
"c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe-BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable"
You must have also:
C:\Documents and Settings\Genkiz\Application Data\Adobe-BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable
and
C:\Documents and Settings\Genkiz\Application Data\FLEXnet-BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable

Rename these 3 folders by removing -BackupByDreamweaverCS4Portable.

Genkiz said...

I used adobe cs3clean to remove and install again, works without activating again. ;)

Jeff said...

Strange that you can get it to work on vista 64 bit. I have 64 bit enterprise at work and all I get is the splash screen and then nothing will load. I am not sure what is happening.

Dimphy said...

It doesn't work. I have PortableApps menu on my USB stick and run a few Portable programs on it.
I extracted Dreamweaver to the stick (PortableApps folder) and it installed like it's supposed to. Now when I want to start I get a screen that says I can't write to the register and if I want to continue. When I say yes the PortableAppz logo shows and that's all. Dreamweaver doesn't start.

Can anyone help?

Bernat said...

Sorry, you have no admin rights and can't run this portable.

Dimphy said...

Isn't there a way to get admin rights since I'm trying to run this on my own computer?

JOSH the MIRROR guy! said...

Bernat said...

@Dimphy
Check you User Account in Control Panel: must be Administrator, not Limited

Dimphy said...

I did and I am administrator.
I tried rightclick and run as administrator too, doesn't work.
:(

Bernat said...

Try on another computer on XP.

Dimphy said...

Tried it on my other computer (I don't have any running on XP anymore) and it almost worked. It launches but as soon as I get in I get the License has stopped working with error 148:3 message and when I click ok it closes again.
FlexNet is running.

I'm almost starting to think that this is a Vista thing ;-)

Bernat said...

Still you have the launcher message: You are not allowed to write to the registry!

I have not this message on my Vista Ultimate SP1 and Dreamweaver run.

Dimphy said...

Still get that message too.

Bernat said...

Ther is a basic setting I did after installing Vista but I don't remember.
This tip to have more rights is well known and I think that somebody will tell you (I don't use Vista).

Dimphy said...

I hope so, I'm about to give up.

Thanks for your help and keep up the good work.

onewaydown said...

I checked the DreamweaverCS4.reg file and it pulled out all of Adobe Acrobat's reg settings too. Why?

Bernat said...

Why not?

Izzy said...

@JOSH the MIRROR guy
german patching dont work.
the appz won't start after installing the patch.
i tried another way and it works well:
extract the patch in a seperate folder.
delete all files in the folder from en_GB.
then copy the german files in the en_GB folder. thats it.

Bernat said...

I think you have and english Windows not german.

Izzy said...

no- it's a german language system

onewaydown said...

QUOTE: Bernat said...
Why not?

Because that messes with the install of Acrobat on the workstation? Not very "portable" if it screws the workstation up when you're done.

Bernat said...

Launcher bakcup the entire Adobe registry keys before launching and restore when closed: nothing should be lost for installed Adobe products.
Adobe Acrobat's reg settings in DreamweaverCS4.reg comes from Dreamweaver portable.

schuwenga said...

Hello!

I had trouble with the german patch, too. I tried a lot. At the end i deleted the folders en_GB and fr_CA in "Drive":\DreamweaverPortable\App\DreamweaverCS4\, then i did the german patch. At the end i renamed the de_DE folder into en_GB and it runs. No chance with the "normal" way. its the same way like izzy did. It works on Vista and Xp, both german versions.

Bernat said...

I can't test.
Thanks for reporting: subject fixed.

Izzy said...

@bernat
i think you should warn all to execute the "dreamweaver cs4 portable",
if you have a normal dreamweaver version installed before!
there is a big mistake while writing in the registry.
so if anyone wants to work with portable versions only - it works great.
no problem with other portable version of adobe too!

only mistakes with the patch?
i don't know....

Bernat said...

"there is a big mistake while writing in the registry"
Can you tell more?
Launcher Backup-Restore these keys:
!define REGKEY1 "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe"
!define REGKEY2 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe"
!define REGKEY3 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FLEXnet Licensing Service"
!define REGKEY4 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macrovision"
!define REGKEY5 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Dreamweaver.Document"
!define REGKEY6 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Dreamweaver.exe"

Did you run another Adobe product while portable is running?

Izzy said...

i cannot tell you more - its only a supposition ^^
2 systems with an previous installed dreamweaver version (cs3+ cs4) only wanted to start with an error like "end of the tryial" and then bye :-(
blame it to the patch ?!
cs cleaner and a new installation didn't work!!!

no - i didn't run another Adobe product while portable is running!

sorry bernat

alydhiends said...

Once again, thank you very much for this great portable app! Hope to see Flash CS4 as well :)

txdude311 said...

Ok i extract the files and then click the DW icon,

" you are not allowed to write to the registry, continue anyways?"

Then it loads and says
"could not locate the resources file in the configuration folder. This file is requiered to Dream Weaver. Please reinstall application."

HELP!??

Bernat said...

You must have admin rights.

txdude311 said...

how does one obtain admin rights?

Bernat said...

XP or Vista?

Look in Control Panel.

txdude311 said...

I have vista

Bernat said...

I'm on XP.
Search how to be administrator on Vista.

@bernat

every time i open it on other comp it asks for a registration key..
plz help
thanks

Bernat said...

I used Simple Service Plugin.

Ak47 said...

hi bernat
can u b a more descriptive..like a sample script or step by step tut.

Bernat said...

You have samples in zip.
Dreamweaver is not registered by serial, should be cracked exe or dll.

But...I've just installed the german patch (cuz i'm german^^) and now,everytime i want to launch it ,it gives me an error. It says:"This Product has encountred a problen which requires that you restart your computer before it can be launched."
I've restarted my PC many times but the error is still there:(.Any help?


PS.:Sorry for my bad english^^

Bernat said...

Sorry, I can't try (I don't read german).
Try to go back to english version.
Perhaps a german user can help you?

Izzy said...

let's see...

hallo dasbinichmalte
bei mir ging es so:
lade dir beides (dreamweaver+patch) runter.
dreamweaver und den patch jeweils in einen seperaten ordner entpacken.
danach suchst du in dreamweaverordner:
App/DreamweaverCS4/en_GB
den inhalt dieses ordners löschen und den inhalt des patches dort austauschen - fertig

Dobromir Hristov said...

adiz salsabila said...

Bernat said...

http://www.google.com/search?q=dreamweaver+cs6+portable

LittleFlower said...

It's not working in my computer; when I launch the app the process starts and after a few seconds it disappeard and that's it.
I have windows 7 professional sp1 32 bit.
Any suggestions?
Thank you

Fiorella

Bernat said...

You are right: don't run for me too on a clean Windows 7 but run on my usual Windows 7 (should have some Visual Basic redist installed).
No solution at this time.
Sorry for inconvenient.
