Dreamweaver CS5.5 will not open in Windows XP

Posted 21 April 2012 - 12:17 PM

When I attempt to launch Dreamweaver it crashes. Will not open. I was using it and got the following error message before it crashed: "Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Anyone know how to fix this issue??

How do I check that?

The program worked for the past 4 months or so since I purchased it. Today it decided to go to crap on me in the middle of a project. There were no updates or changes in any configuration to my computer.

Actually I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. I wasn't thinking clearly before.

Hmm.. yeah winxp and win7 are often confused.. ;) What does the event viewer (in the admin tools) tell you regarding the crash?

Problem solved.
I put the website on my desktop and started to play around with it. Everything worked fine except my .css. So, I made a copy of the file and deleted my .css from the website and everything worked. Problem is I deleted my mainstyles in the process. So, I created another copy and deleted my tablet.css and my mobile.css and the issue was solved.
Loaded it up in Dreamweaver and now it's back and running. Apparently there was something within my .css that Dreamweaver did not like.
