The PHP Curly Braces Error In Dreamweaver CS3

Hi co-designers… Few days ago I was having a strange error when attempting to write a code in PHP for Dreamweaver CS3 (9)  for Windows, in my case Windows XP. This is the operating system they use in my workplace, yes I know, is a shame but I had to deal with it.

The problem is that the software always crashes after I typed in the curly braces ‘{‘, it didn’t happen coding JavaScript or any other language, it was specifically with PHP. The solution is also posted at Adobe Database. The best solutions I found are two solutions from a co-designer blog and these are the solutions:

  1. Turning Dreamweaver To Original State: You need to have access to your Application Data folder (C:\Documents and Settings\[your user folder]\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9). If you don’t have too much configurations or a personalize workspace you can delete everything in that folder. But remember, you will loose all configurations you had made. Dreamweaver will open back in its original state.
  2. Keeping Every Configurations: The second solution will not remove any custom configuration, you need to access the software’s configuration folder (C:\Documents and Settings\[your user folder]\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9\Configurations\) and delete the file named -WinFileCache-AD76BB20.dat- or something like that. Then re-start the software, the crash error should disappear.

Well, I hope this help any of my co-designers. Have a awesome 2010 Thanksgiving Day!
