Hello,

 

I know this is an older product but I much prefer it over the new cc version. Heres my issue I have an english install version. It installs fine on my HP windows 8.1 computer running in win 7 compatibility mode Works awesome. I use the same install on my dell laptop running windows 8.1 install in win 7 compatibility and the install process is all english.I open the program and its showing the splash in english but when opened the tool bar is all in spainish. Some of the drop downs are spainish but once an otion is opened like preferences its all english. Panels are in both english and spainish on the side panels. Some words are english some are spainish. Any idea how this is possble ? Have had both laptops since new neve used spainish languange on either for anything.Its and english install as I have used it on many fresh computers as I upgraded but this one computer installs it weird so I dont know if its windows doing this or the program some how installing the mixed languages just on this machine.

 

Ive looked for any other adobe files cleaned all I can see. I never installed any other adobe products except flash player but thats gone. I ran the Adobe creative Suites Cleaner tool just in case. Ive run CCcleaner to clean up registry but each time its the same thing.???Screenshot (1).png

LATEST

Do you have the last updates that came out ages ago?

DW 8.02 update:

https://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/dreamweaver/dw8/releasenotes.html#802

 

NOTE:  DW 8 is discontinued & unsupported.  I can't even suggest reinstalling it because the activation servers are gone.   It was created to run on Win98/ME and 2000.  I don't know for sure but the language could be coming from your OS.

 

Given it's advanced age, DW8 is no longer fit for purpose.  It will create horribly outdated code that is deprecated and will no doubt throw validation errors.  At a minimum, you need a modern code editor, even open source is better than DW8.
