CS4 - 64 BIT SYSTEM - Windows 7 compatibility

I have searched for this but suprisingly no one has asked about CS4 so......

I currently have the latest version of css menu writer runniong with Adobe cs3 dw on Vista, everything runs fine, I have new 64bit system and wonder can someone tell me if there are issues or will this software run with cs4 on a 64bit system?

I am running a 64bit Windows 7 system at home with DW CS4 and do not have any compatibility issues with the currant versions of any of the WebAssist Extensions.

MySQL Connectivity CS4 on Windows 7 64bit

I have been using Dreamweaver on Vista 32bit 4 GB Ram with Intel Core Duo 2.7 Ghz. and building a php / MySQL site.

Up until now, I constantly have been getting issues with the various extensions (super suite), eg. Tried to run the DataAssist 2.06 wizzard, and would get blank wizzard screens etc.) This has been quite regular ever since purchasing these. I thought that maybe My PC had to much background programs running etc.

So I just purchased a new Hard drive and had WIndows 7 Pro 64bit installed (clean) and connected to my old motherboard (which supports 64bit), activating the drive through bios. I installed MySQL Server (Version 5.1.43 64bit) and restored my database with no issue. I can connect to this using the MySQL Administrator (GUI) without issue and setup MySQL user Accounts (the same as on my old vista 32bit environment).

After installing Dreamweaver CS4 on the new WIndows 7 64bit platform, it seems to run ok except that I cannot connect to MySQL. If I try to edit or create a new connection and press the Test button, I get an error message "An unidentified error has occurred."

Initially when I installed Dreamweaver on the new Windows 7 platform, I did not deactivate it from the old. So I thought that this might have something to do with the issue. So I deactivated the install on the old Vista 32bit platform, then I uninstalled Dreamweaver (after deactivating it) on the WIndows 7 platform, and then reinstalled it on WIndows 7.

With the newly installed copy of Dreamweaver on Windows 7;
After loading my site, when I try to manage my MySQL connections, I still get the same error "An unidentifed error has occured"

I have read that if running Windows (64bit) you should not install the 32 bit version of MySQL. I did also try testing against the 32 bit MySQL but to no avail.

After spending a reasonable amount of money to upgrade my hardware (including taking ram to 4GB) it seems that I have now gone backwards in that Im not able to write any SQL code

Any suggestions?

I've been running Windows 7 64 bit with DW CS4 since last October without a single problem. All the WA extensions work as well.

I installed WAMP for my MySql and PHP etc. I'm unaware whether it's (MySql) 64 or 32 bit but it runs flawlessly.

Your issue sounds like a PHP installation problem.

I have a Windows 7 64 bit install on my computer at home. Initially, I could not get a working testing server to run at all using IIS, PHP and MySQL. With that combination, I could not even get a test php page that included:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

to load.

I ended up uninstalling IIS and MySQL, reverting all of the system changes needed to install PHP and installing XAMPP instead.


The only hiccup I encountered with XAMPP was needing the disable the IPv6 option.


See the "Setting up a Testing Server for Windows" tutorial in the laerning resources section:
resources.php

Thanks for the information. I followed the advise and removed IIS and installed the latest version of XAMPP and it works fine.
