I am looking to avoid DW crashes simply while using DW as well as using Design Extender

I have avoided using Dreamweaver at all because of all the crashes. My older computer and slow internet may be in part to blame, however I really want to go back to using DW. I am wondering what is the most stable. I have CS5.5 and currently paying for a CC subscription. Looking for advise as if I should simply drop the CC subscription and go back to CS5.5 or ? I see you do have some updates to install to work with CC2017 and CC2018. Wondering how it is working for everyone.
One computer is Windows 7 Pro with 8 GB RAM, 64 bit operating system. My other is Windows 7 Pro with 4GM Ram 64 bit operating

In my experience the issue has more to do with the computer than the DW version. I think it might have something to do with the graphics card more than the OS and RAM as well. In my experience some computers crash all of the time and others don't and changing DW version is seldom the solution.

I purchased a new computer, made sure I have plenty of resources. Managed to get DataBridge installed with Extension Mgr CS6 to convert file and then used ZXP installer. More in private message.

The error you are getting now is in a core DW file, not one of ours. You could try deleting your entire configuration folder and trying again.

One way to keep a clean Dreamweaver and still have extensions installed is to install the extensions and then save that configuration folder as configuration_extensions. Then you can have a blank configuration folder you use regularly and then rename that folder back to configuration when you need to access wizards.
