Need Macromedia DW 4 for Win 10 Laptop

I am a retired journalist running only a small personal site now. For over a decade I was happily using Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 MX (before that I had bought DW2 and DW3) but the ancient computer it ran on has died.

Of course in the meantime Adobe has bought the program from Macromedia.

Now I am using a Windows 10 laptop. I installed DW4 from the CD, but this was an upgrade CD (because I had paid full price for one of the earlier versions).

It asked me for the registration code (which it accepted) but it then asked me for the code for the previous version and it wouldn't accept that. So now the 30p-day trial period has run out and I cannot use DW4 any more.

 

I have managed to get DW3 working (it accepted the reg code and the one for the DW2 I had originally bought) but DW3 is very clunky. I don't want to buy a new program (for financial and learming curve reasons).

I really want DW4 back and don't think I should have to pay anything or only a small nominal amount.

Can you help please, Adobe?

Unfortunately, the good ship DW4  sailed a long, long time ago.  You can get a free code editor like Brackets or Visual Studio Code that understands modern markup.

Assuming you have the installation disk for it, scroll down the page below to Dreamweaver MX 2004 for Windows.   Use the serial number provided on that page.

Apart from getting a Creative Cloud subscription for $21/month, that's all I can suggest.
