So, I just installed a fresh, new Windows 10 and Dreamweaver.

I opened the program, it welcomed me, start screen, I chose to see a sample document.

And then the program just closed and disappeared and this showed up:

So, obviously, I ticked all the boxes and clicked Allow access.

I tried to run the program again. It closes immediately as I open it, without any prompts and crash reports.

What to do?

There are a few choices that you can make at this point

  • restart the computer (or firewall)
  • remove (or disconnect) the firewall
  • don't use Dreamweaver
  • Read the firewall manual
  • etc; etc;

 

The problem affects Dreamweaver without it being caused by Dreamweaver.

Hi, thank you for your reply, but I tried all of the above and none worked. 😞 I really don't know how to fix this. The firewall can be enabled or disabled but the program doesn't work either way.

As a matter of interest, this is what Windows Defender shows on my system
