Cannot launch Dreamweaver CS5 on Mac OS

  • The Dreamweaver menu appears in the menu bar, but other menus, such as File, Edit, and View, do not appear.
  • The application does not appear on the screen at all.

Solution: Install the Dreamweaver 11.0.4 update

  2. Double-click the AdobeDreamweaver-11.0-All-Update folder to open it.
  3. Double-click the AdobePatchInstaller application, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

Important: After installing this update, restart your computer.
