Does Dreamweaver 8 work on Windows 7? Let’s see.
DREAMWEAVER MX 2004 WORK ON Windows 7?
Well, it did for me in this short test. I installed, looked up my (very old) serial number and completed the install and ran DW MX 2004. I set up a website and made some minor edits to a couple of pages on the site and everything went smoothly.
Now its time to move onto DW8, I won’t bother with many settings in DW MX 2004 because Dreamweavwer 8 should change many of the options and settings so there’s really no reason to spend a lot of time getting the GUI the way I want, importing and adding snippets etc.
DREAMWEAVER 8 WORK ON Windows 7?
It almost in my worked on my initial test, but here’s what happened. When I have images on a page and I right click in Design View, and select Source File to change the image it won’t update. I can type the image name in the dialog box and that works. Oddly enough, in the Relative To dropdown box, if I change the value (Document or Site Root), then I can change the image through the dialog box – but that’s aggravating. Obviously more testing is needed. I didn’t check this functionality in DW MX 2004, so its possible the issue was there also.
Another interesting thing is that running the Program Compatibility wizard seems to do no good, although it tries to load Windows XP SP2 compatibility. Since the DW8 worked on an XP SP3 computer, I tried Windows XP SP3 compatibility, but just got a message that it didn’t work. Even trying to save its Program Compatibility’s “Try recommended settings” option fails with “Incompatible Application – Detected”.
DOES DREAMWEAVER 8 RUN ON WINDOWS 7?
Well, mostly up to this point it works, but clearly more testing will be needed. I guess its time for me to re-read Dreamweaver 8 and Windows 7 and try some of the suggestions.
