I ended up calling Adobe Tech support. After giving the tech support guy access to my computer to do trouble shooting he finally determined that there was a missing external file. We ended up copying the missing file from a backup of my website I had on an external backup drive. Once I got that file copyed into my main library all was well. Apparenty DW was hanging because it was searching for the missing file.

I've been having the same problem. Every time I click on Assets to change the library in Dreamweaver I have to force quit the application.

  • Which OS?
  • Which version of DW?
  • Does this happen with all sites or just certain ones?
  • How many files in your local site folder?
  • Where does your local site folder reside? Is it on the same primary drive as DW?
