Everytime I want to use Data Bridge, I have to delete the .dat file.

Everytime I want to use Data Bridge, I have to delete the .dat file.

After reopening DW everything works fine. No problems. But if I close DW, then I have to delete the .dat file again and again... Do you have a fix for this problem? I had this problem with CS3 running XP. Bought a new computer and upgrated to Windows 8 & CS6, and still have the same problem. I deleted all the extensions, leaving only Data Bridge and still have to delete the .dat file to use Data Assist. Please advise.

I'll need more details.

When you open Dreamweaver are you getting an error message? if so, what is the error?

are there any other extensions installed besides Data Bridge?

No, I don't get any error message. Everything works fine until I use Data Assist Pages. If I haven't previously deleted the "appdata.dat" file, DW crashes when using Data Assist Pages wizard. I have to delete the "appdata.dat" file prior to use DW to work without crashing. After deleting the .dat file, DW works perfectly. As you know, when DW is closed, it stores or updates the "appdata.dat" file. This is the file I have to delete daily (sometimes more than once) every time I start to work.

I deleted all the extensions (that I have installed), leaving only Data Bridge but still the problem persists. I wish to stress that if I first delete the appdata.dat file, and then open DW it works perfectly. Do you have an update, a patch or something to correct this problem?
