Installer fails, so couldnt test anything else
What does not
installer, havent seen anything else
I'm using Ubuntu 7.04 Edgy Eft for this, so change these commands to
match up whatever your distro uses to accomplish the same thing.
Don't steal software. This guide is for users who have a legitimate
copy of Dreamweaver installed on their Windows partition. If you don't
have Dreamweaver, you can get a copy from Adobe's website here: http://www.adobe.com (we don't get any $$ kickbacks from that).
Ok, on to the steps to get this working!
First, install wine if you haven't already. Like I stated before, I'm
using Ubuntu to do this, so apt-get is my choice of software
installers. Your distro may be different. Consult your system docs for
the correct syntax for your software package management tool.
This is a large directory, so it might take a few minutes to copy
over. It also might be easier for Linux newbies to copy/paste this in
After that, copy the whole "Adobe" folder from "c:\Documents and
settings\All users\Application Data" to
Then, copy the whole "c:\Windows\system32\Macromed" directory to
"/home/(username)/.wine/drive_c/window/system32/Macromed/". Notice that
the "ia" is left off the end of the word "Macromedia". This is not a
Next, copy the whole "Adobe" folder from "c:\Program Files\Common
Files" to "/home/(username)/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files/"
Finally, you'll need to copy over the "c:\WINDOWS\WinSxS" directory
to your Wine "windows" directory. Wine doesn't have a WinSxS directory,
so copy the whole thing over intact. Dreamweaver needs the latest C++
runtime and other assorted files from there to work properly.
After you have copied all of the program files and system files
Dreamweaver needs to your Linux partition, you need to export the
Dreamweaver registry keys. Boot back into Windows and use regedit to
dump this information to a file:
Start --> Run --> "regedit" (Enter)
Export the entire "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Macromedia/" registry key to "C:\dreamweaver.reg" and boot back into Linux.
Now we'll need to convert the registry keys to ASCII format with
the recode utility. Let's install that program if it isn't already:
sudo apt-get install recode
Copy over the registry keys to your home directory and convert them to ascii like so:
recode ucs-2..ascii dreamweaver.reg
And now import the keys into wine:
wine regedit dreamweaver.reg
Finished! Now cd over to your Dreamweaver directory and run DWCS3! Hopefully it will work... lol
cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Dreamweaver\ CS3/
Update: This may or may not work for everyone. I'm getting the following error message:
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "MSVCR80.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for
L"C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Dreamweaver CS3\\Dreamweaver.exe"

module not found

I was getting a "module not found" error when I was typing "wine Dreamweaver.exe" in the source directory. It turns out that I didn't have owner permissions for some of the directories so I went to
and then gave myself ownership of all files and subfolders there
sudo chown -R MyName *
and it worked like a charm, of course after using the crack (just replacing the Dreamweaver.exe file with the crack Dreamweaver.exe file) This is really the only reason I am still using windows so AWESOME!!
