Studio MX Dreamweaver component won't run in Windows 7

by OSSeas / August 15, 2011 5:06 PM PDT

I have just purchased a new Sony VAIO top of the line computer with Windows 7. My Studio MX Suite installed but Dreamweaver won't run. I get the initial start up box but nothing else happens. The other components all run OK. I did look at the program properties and selected XP SP3 which was on my old computer but that did not help.
Any Ideas?

What do you mean?

I can't choose the software, I already own it.
Is there a selection somewhere in Windows 7 that allows a choice between 32 and 64 bit installations?
Can you please clarify how I do as you suggest.

I have ideas but

I can't tell which Studio MX you have.

Here's the deal. I bet this has been discussed before but without this small detail, I can't look into it.

And here's another bet. It's not a 32/64 bit thing. At the office we have both 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 laptops. And after a few dozen apps that didn't work on 64 bit we tried on 32 bit and they fail there as well. These apps were mostly apps from 2000 or earlier and didn't work on Vista either.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
