For the last couple of weeks I have been working on my new laptop that has Windows Vista Home Premium installed in it. Unfortunately, I run into a problem a week after I had it, I decided to install Dreamweaver CS3 and it wouldn’t start correctly. Dreamweaver would look as if it was starting and then close itself a few minutes later.
I tried running the program as Administrator, uninstalling and reinstalling, I tried installing other DW versions but still no luck.
Finally, I figured out that my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop had a program called Acer Empowering Frameworks installed that was blocking Dreamweaver. I still don’t understand why it would block a program, but it’s certainly a problem that Acer needs to solve soon.
So once that I identified the problem the solution was simple. Uninstalling Acer Empowering Frameworks Software from my Acer laptop was the solution, as simple as that. I believe this advice has been useful to a lot of people so there you have it. Hope this helps you as it helped me.
