Dreamweaver 8 on 64-bit Windows Vista

by DanB

I’ve been trying to install and run Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 on my Windows Vista 64-bit laptop. The install would go fine. I could launch the program. It would show in my running processes but never display. Perplexing to say the least.

After fiddling with this for the better part of the morning I found a solution here:

The solution in a nutshell is:

Before installing in Vista Ultimate X64
Click Start in bottom left
Search for cmd
Right click and run as administrator
type or copy and paste
cd C:\Windows\SysWow64
then copy and paste
regsvr32 jscript.dll
then copy and paste
regsvr32 vbscript.dll
now you can install Photoshop CS3 by double clicking on setup

Those instructions say Photoshop but it worked fine with my Dreamweaver 8.

More details at the link above.
