Well, that didn't work either, so I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling again, and low-and-behold, dreamweaver kept crashing...
Then I remembered the memento panel!
Basically, I had to install one product that I knew used the memento panel, hope that DW would launch - which it thankfully did - then switch it off in the WA prefs.
Why does the memento panel exist?
It seems to serve no purpose other than remind me of a few tasks that I need to carry out. The rest of it is just repetitive content that you email to me anyway. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; it is nothing more than a marketing gimmick for WebAssist which consistently crashes DW even after removing .dat file and renaming the floater and startup folders. This is now the third time I have wasted more than a day trying to get DW to just launch. I'll have to do it again when Adobe release CS5... are you Adobe influencers or partners?
Anyway, currently, I have all but two of the extensions I have from you working. The ones not working are PhotoAssist and the free Google tools, but honestly, I can live without them.
