Hi I have Dreamweaver CC on Win 8.1 I have had many crashes with DW CC and extensions so I uninstalled DW and reinstalled. Prior to this I had issues with SIP and PUP3 in that the came up with an error when installing saying that the xml file to complete installation could not be found. Now 90% of the extensions (only DMXZone) say the same thing. I looked inside the Accordion extension and found the install JS file. I can see the error occurs when this function "getConfigurationPath()" returns - looks like it is getting the program path instead of the extension path (users/appdata/etc.) Can you please advise where the Configuration path is set and what I should change it to? There is another support request along the same lines in the forums that has remained unanswered. Regards Steve
PS The message says: Cannot find the complimentary installation file: file:///C|/Program Files(x86)/Adobe Dreamweaver CC/Configuration/temp/dmxAccordion10/dmxAccordion10_install.xml
Ok, I disabled all the extensions in extension manager except for DMXZone Updater and Deprecated Panels. I then started Dreamweaver and enabled extensions in EM one at a time and checked they popped up in DMXZone Updater (restarted). I then restarted DW and the extensions installed. Not sure why this worked. I read somewhere about installing Deprecated Panels first so tried this and it works. I don't think I will be the only one to have this problem with CC - so unstable! Hope this helps someone else (optimistic that I won't be back updating later)
Deprecated Server Behaviours, Bindings, Databases & Components for Dreamweaver CS7 (CC) and above supplied by Adobe. As you know these were removed in CC and to use many of your extensions they are required - except where the HTML5 bindings are usable.
I found a suggestion by Adobe to install Deprecated Panel Support first which seemed to help.
You will find that there is another support request for Pure Upload 3 in the forums.
Please note that I have tried all the suggestions to restore CC - deleted the cache, deleted the configuration folder, reinstalled DW CC, edited the registry and every time after several hours restoring the needed extensions and setting up it will start crashing again usually within the hour.
I suspect the problem is CC. What this means is that more people will start having these problems as they move across and if you read the Adobe forums there are many unhappy users.
It may be a combo of DW CC and Win 8.1 64 bit pro. I don't know.
If there is anything I can provide you in the way of debug information - crash dumps etc please let me know.
7. Do you see other files in this temp folder? A. There are 5 additional folders - DataSources, Objects, PHP_Sources, Serverbehaviours, Shared
And success - this is the first time this one has loaded so obviously my system is behaving now. I will try others and let you know. One thing is that I only install extensions as I need them so maybe this helps. CC still crashes fairly often - sliding windows is one that seems to crash the system and I suspect it is some code on the page. Could just be CC.
Thanks for looking into this. Sorry this didn't really help.
This is NOT solving the problem. I tried a complete fresh install of both Dreamweaver CC as well as CS6. Its not working. Deleted cache files, than config files and than complete re-install and the same thing will happen.
Also what kind of a solution is, i only install the ones i need.
Why don't you provide information as requested by George? They need this information to help solve the problem so please try to help.
In answer to your question - I am a subscriber to DMXZone so theoretically could install every single extension (I have done this in the past). I also have extensions from other vendors. I have found that if I only install and enable the extensions I am using on a particular project it seems to be more reliable. If install everything I have more crashes. It is just advice from my experience - you can take it or leave it.
I did in a different thread. And do us a favor. In order to see if this is really fixed could you install a couple more to see if it happens again. I can install a few myself . Sometimes one or 2 more than the time before, sometimes a little less. Thanks for helping out
