When I try and preview the page, I get ...

 

>> You tried to access an external HTML page, which can not be opened on the device for preview. Open the page in Dreamweaver to preview the page on the device. <<

 

The page IS open in Dreamweaver on my local computer, but it is not connected to the server

In DW 8, this just worked. Not so much in newewst version

Right click on open HTML document tab and select Open in Browser.  This avoids Real-Time Preview.

You can also change Real-Time Preview to static browser preview from your Preferences.

Are you working from within a Defined Site, or just trying to open a random html file with Real Time Preview?

I had the same thing.  In  Dreamweaver CC 2020, go to edit/preferences/real-time preview and check the box for "preview using temporary file".

Also, after I made the above change and then changed it back to the way it was; the live preview started working again.  Not sure if this somehow reset something.
