Freezing on older versions of Dreamweaver....

Freezing on older versions of Dreamweaver....

This is a new product, and therefore I expect it to be tested and used on the latest versions of software... that only makes sense.
I am still running two old versions of Dreamweaver... CS4 and CS6... so my comments must be taken with that in mind.

Prior to this beta release, I've been able to run all WA extensions on CS6 (including MySQLi and the Compatable eCart), but this beta is causing me some grief. When the dialog boxes open they seem to do what they should. But more often than not Dreamweaver is completely freezing when I try to do something. I just get a "not responding" and eventually have to close DW down.

I've tried a clean install of CS6 including just the required extensions and have the same problems. The problem is frequent enough that I cannot properly test it any further.

Again... I don't expect backward compatibility to archaic versions of software, I'm just reporting this in case there are others like me :)

I appreciate the feedback. Does this happen on blank pages, or on specific pages? I'm assuming it is crashing when you click the "OK" button and apply the functionality? What interfaces does this happen with. General reports are hard to debug, but if you say something like: With this attached page, when I open this specific interface, when I click the "OK" button at the end, it crashes after dreamweavrer creates the page or adds the code or immediately... Then if you try the exact same steps on a blank page do you get the same results? I need that kind of detail to properly debug any issues.

Ray... as I said, I'm not expecting to have this fixed for me.... I'm not sure there are many CS6 users left anymore :) I'd rather you work with the other BETA testers to make sure it works on the newer version of DW.

If CS6 compatibility is important to you. then I will re-open the program and provide a few "recipes" you can look into.

To answer your question... I have only tested using newly created clean HTML 5 pages within a new site space in DW. I am not trying to add anything to existing pages.
