If you have updated your CS6 programs after installing the Adobe CC app, then the CC app 'takes over' your CS6 instalation as being part of the CC subscription.

The only way I have found to take back ownership is to de-register your CS6, uninstall all CS6 and CC programs, uninstall the CC app. Then run the Adobe cleaner tool to remove all traces of the CS6 and CC instalation. Do not forget to back-up any site definitions, etc before doing this.

Once you have done all that reinstall what you requir

Is your version of CS6 a perpetual license or CC subscription?

Once you have done all that reinstall what you require, bot do not select to update any of your CS6 programs via the CC app. This means that for Dw there are ​no​ updates.

I found that I had to uninstall all CS6 programs.

I tried it with just uninstalling Dw, but fireworks remained locked as a CC subscription, (gave up trying uninstalling individual programs after that) so I uninstalled everything from CS6.

OK. This what I did:

 

  • Uninstalled all Adobe CC software, including Adobe CC Desktop & Adobe Genuine Software 
  • Uninstalled Adobe CS6 software, including Adobe Dreamweaver CS6
  • Restarted my computer 
  • Re-installed ONLY the Adobe CS6 Suite
  • Opened Dreamweaver CS6
  • The Subscription pop-up returned, but it had a new button on it, called License Software. 
  • I clicked on this button, which asked me to sign in.
  • Then after I signed in, a Serial Number pop-up opened.  
  • I added my CS6 serial number and now everything works. 🙂

Legacy CS6 is outdated software. The web has changed a lot since 2012.

You really should be using a modern code editor that understand's current HTML5, CSS3 and modern JavaScript code. 

If not Dreamweaver, then something else.
