When you experience weird JavaScript error messages like:

  • InitializeUI is not found error
  • While executing onLoad in somefile.js  JavaScript Error appeared. 
  • While executing onOpen in somefile.js  JavaScript Error appeared.
  • <!-- Search: somename, server behavior is not found
Or extensions interface do not appear or appear corrupted clearing the cache of Dreamweaver almost always solves it.

      Dreamweaver's cache is kept in a file in its Configuration folder. That file name depends on OS:

  • For Windows  it is WinFileCache-<randomString>.dat
  • For  MAC  it is MacFileCache-<randomString>.dat

      Deleting of that file clears the cache. After restarting Dreamweaver is creating new one. Location of the cache file differs for each version and operating system. Here is a list of locations depending on DW version and OS:
