Learn how to install in-app updates released for Dreamweaver and understand how these updates benefit you.

Installing In-App updates

Adobe provides updates on an on-going basis to keep Dreamweaver up-to-date with the ever-evolving technology. For example, updates to Bootstrap libraries or starter templates.

You can download and install In-App updates automatically or manually. The Dreamweaver preferences dialog box lets you specify the mode of update, enable, or disable In-App updates.

In-App updates are installed in the following locations:

  • Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2015\en_US\Configuration\Updates\
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CC 2015/en_US/Configuration/Updates/

Automatic update

When you choose automatic update, the download and install of In-App updates are transparent. When an In-App update becomes available, it is downloaded automatically. You will be notified about the status of the installation when you launch Dreamweaver next.

Note:

The image above is only indicative and illustrates an example of an In-App update installation when it becomes available.

The success or failure notifications are auto-dismissed after a few seconds. If you want to verify if the installation is succesful, check the Current Version number in the In-App update preferences (Edit > Preferences (Win); Dreamweaver > Preferences (Mac)).

Manual update

When you choose manual update, Dreamweaver notifies you when an In-App update becomes available. You can choose to download and install the update immediately or at a later point in time.

Note:

The image above is only indicative and illustrates an example of an In-App update when it becomes available.

When you click Update, the in-app update is only downloaded. The update is installed and is available for use only after you relaunch Dreamweaver.

The success or failure notifications are auto-dismissed after a few seconds. If you want to verify if the installation is succesful, check the Current Version number in the In-App update preferences (Edit > Preferences (Win); Dreamweaver > Preferences (Mac)).

Specify preferences

In Dreamweaver preferences, you can specify how you want to download and install In-App updates: manually or automatically. You can also choose to disable In-App updates.

  1. Click Edit > Preferences (Windows), or go to Dreamweaver > Preferences (Mac).

  2. Click In-App updates in the Category list.

  3. Click an option that suits your requirement:

    • Manual
    • Automatic
    • Turn-off in-app updates
    In-App update preferences
    In-App update preferences

Reverting In-App updates

You cannot selectively revert In-App updates. This means that if four updates have been installed, all the four updates are uninstalled when you revert.

  1. Click Edit > Preferences (Windows), or go to Dreamweaver > Preferences (Mac).

  2. Click In-App updates in the Category list.

  3. Click Revert.

  4. Click OK when prompted to confirm, and then click Apply.

  5. Restart Dreamweaver.
