Dreamweaver - dwscripts is not defined

October 2016


I am having a problem after loading plugins to play animations in web pages. I wanted to listen music sample on the Internet and they asked me to download plugins from the RealPlayer website. Then for some reason I do not know. I am using Mozilla Firefox.
So, when I am running Dreamweaver 8, I am getting this:

"In line 56 of file C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver8\Configuration\Shared\Common\Scripts\dwscriptsExtData.js ReferenceError: dwscripts is not defined."

Then when I open a file I get the following message:

"The following translators were not loaded due to errors: 
Asp.htm has configuration information invalid 
JSP.htm has configuration information invalid 
PHP_MySQL.htm has configuration information invalid 
XLST.htm has invalid configuration information " 

Then I can no longer use the "Save As" to save a file (nothing happens)

When I modify a file (the comande does not work either) and I want to try it in a browser using the F12 key, the program proposes to make a backup first.

But when the next backup information is displayed:

"A JavaScript error occurred during the execution of one load in tempURL_afterSave.htm"

And it asks me to click OK. This operation is repeated several times but the file is still saved.

I tried at first to return to a previous configuration of Windows XP but the problem persisted.

Then I'm on my second uninstall then reinstall Dreamweaver but the problem is still there. What also surprised at these facilities is that they never ask me the serial number either.

That, for the moment I'm stuck for updating and maintaining my website.


In conclusion:
  • Close DW
  • Delete the config file:

Dreamweaver 8 on Windows XP:

C: \ Documents and Settings \ [username] \ Application Data \ Macromedia \ Dreamweaver 8 \ Configuration

and if necessary apply Workstation> Options> View> Show hidden files and folder to display the folder.
  • Restart DW
  • If this does not uninstall ? DW, delete the folder, reinstall and restart DW.

I think it should be better, if not, plunges you into the other solutions on adobe ...
