Thank rmorgan at http://forums.openaddict.com/viewtopic.php?t=849 for this How To.
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.
Warning: 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.
Note: Make sure you have the latest version of Wine for your distro. The current release can be downloaded here: http://www.winehq.org/site/download
|sudo apt-get install wine|
|cp -R /dev/sda2/Program\ Files/Adobe/* /home/(username)/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Abobe|
|Start --> Run --> "regedit" (Enter)|
|sudo apt-get install recode|
|recode ucs-2..ascii dreamweaver.reg|
|wine regedit dreamweaver.reg|
|cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Dreamweaver\ CS3/
2015-08-06 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2008 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
Things I had to do in addition to the howto:
1. as previously posted the registry entry is indeed Adobe, not Macromedia.
2. my recode failed: Untranslatable input in step `ISO-10646-UCS-2..ANSI_X3.4-1968'
Solved it by using command recode u2..u8 dreamweaver.reg
This turns it to UTF-8 (instead of ASCII) which the regedit is able to import.
3. Got a catastrophic license failure, which was solved by changing wine to run it as win98.
