Dreamweaver Creative Cloud No longer Opens

Hi,

Just tried to open DW.  It fails to load with an error.

 

"Dreamweaver encountered problems while constructing the menus from the current menus.xml file.

please delete the current menus.xml file and rename menus.bak to menus.xml"

 

I notice other have had this issue.  My environment is on a MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6.  iMac 27Inch Mid 2011.

 

On dreamweaver cc I have been unable to update the software as the update is no longer compatible with my setup "Not Compatible".  

 

I am on a mid 2011 iMac.  There is no way I can get a new iMac yet or upgrade the iMac yet, and it is an absolute that I need DW.  So I'm really really stuck right now.

 

To better manage HardDrive Storage, some years ago now, I moved my access to the Adobe documents, from th HD to an iCloud drive.  All Adobe applications have worked perfectly until today DW doesnt open.   

Is there anyway that I can get Dreamweaver back up and running on my current iMac?  I am so stuck without this.

You could try this KB article to delete the file cache and re-create the user config folder: https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/troubleshoot-javascript-errors-dreamweaver-cs6-cc.html

 

If that doesn't work, you can download a newer version of DW.  Both the CC 2019 and CC 2020 versions have High Sierra compatibility.  But when you say the update is not compatible with your setup, what version of DW are you trying to update from?  At the most, your site files are in your user library on your Mac and can be easily moved over if a new installation is installed.
