Help files give error message

I recently reinstalled my CS5 Design Premium in a new Computer.  When I opened Dreamweaver and tried to go to the Dreamweaver Help files, I got a message that "the help system cannot be launched because the help folder is missing".  Does anyone know how to get that folder onto my computer?  I am using Windows 10, and downloaded the installation file for CS5 that an Adobe tech sent me a link to, but they apparently didn't want to provide any more support than that and referred me to the forum.

This may help: https://helpx.adobe.com/archive/dreamweaver/dreamweaver-cs5-5-troubleshooting.pdf

 

Edit: I just tried and the help pages are non-existent. This points to the fact that CS5 is no linger supported.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

I think Adobe are sending a clear message to their users.  Creative Suite has no future and it really is time to switch to modern software, especially on the web which stands still for no one.   

 

Happy 2020!
