FAQ

Read the following FAQ to find out more about the latest update to Dreamweaver CC 2014.

How do I know if the update has been successfully installed?

If the update is successful, the About box in Dreamweaver (Help > About on Windows; Dreamweaver > About Dreamweaver on Mac OS) displays the version number as 2014.1 Release.

The Creative Cloud app also displays a message indicating that the update is successful in the Installed Apps section.

How do I know if the newly installed version of Dreamweaver is 32 bit or 64 bit?

The Creative Cloud app automatically detects the operating system and makes the corresponding Dreamweaver version (32 or 64 bit) available to you. If you still need to verify if the appropriate version is installed on your machine, perform the following steps:

  • Windows: Launch Dreamweaver. Open the Task Manager and search for the Dreamweaver process. If the launched Dreamweaver build is 64 bit, the name of the process is “Dreamweaver.exe." If the launched build is 32 bit, the name of the process name is "Dreamweaver.exe *32."
  • Mac: Open Activity Monitor, and go to check View > Columns > Kind. Search for Dreamweaver in Activity Monitor; if the launched Dreamweaver is 64 bit, the Kind column indicates “64 bit."

What happens to Dreamweaver CC 2014 version after the update?

Dreamweaver CC 2014 is replaced with the latest update to Dreamweaver CC 2014 (2014.1 release). If you want to use Dreamweaver CC 2014 for any reason, download it from the following locations:

Note:

If you have saved your Dreamweaver CC 2014 settings on the cloud, you can easily import them into the updated version and get started quickly. For more information, see Import sync settings from previous versions.

Can I use the previously installed add-ons or extensions with the updated version?

  • If you have installed third-party extensions using Adobe Extension Manager (ZXP files), first update Adobe Extension Manager to the latest version. Then, install the extensions again to use them in the updated version of Dreamweaver CC 2014.
  • If you have installed the extensions from the Creative Cloud Add-ons page, those extensions are automatically available for use in the updated version of Dreamweaver CC 2014. To see these extensions listed in Adobe Extension Manager, you need to update Adobe Extension Manager to the latest version.

Migration of extensions begins after Dreamweaver CC 2014 is updated. Migration time depends on the size and the number of extensions, network speed, and other factors. Adobe recommends that you wait at least two minutes after the installation before launching Dreamweaver (which is the approximate duration for migration of six to seven extensions).

If an extension does not migrate successfully, perform the following steps:

  1. In Dreamweaver, choose Window > Browse Add-ons to open the Add-ons page.

  2. Quit Dreamweaver.

  3. On the Add-ons page, go to My Add-ons, locate the extension that has failed to migrate, and click Remove to remove the partially migrated Add-on. Once the Install button appears, click Install to start a fresh installation of the Add-on.

    The Creative Cloud desktop app notifies you when the Add-on is successfully installed.
