    Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Adobe CS4


    Hi All,

    I've installed CS4 onto my Windows 8 CP installation but am having problems with several programs:

    1. Dreamweaver has a problem with 'Dreamweaver encountered problems while constructing the menus from the current menus.xml file.' and won't start.
    2. Photoshop (both 32 and 64-bit) has a runtime error and stops working 'Adobe Photoshop CS4 has stopped working'.
    3. Illustrator was having a problem loading plugins, but now I get nothing at all!


    I think this all has something to do with permissions. When I visit c:/Users/Username/Appdata/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS4/ I am warned I cannot access this. I delve a little deeper with the security tab and see there is no owner, so add my machine as the owner and I can access the folder. It's empty, however. The same applies to the folders for the other programs in the suite.
    Any ideas? I've reinstalled three times and it makes no difference.

    Hi, welcome.

    I can't help directly with your issue, but perhaps a beta Photoshop would go well with a beta operating system?

    CS6 beta is available at the link. You can let it activate and it's all well and legal. 60 day trial I believe.

    I have it too but not from this link. It works very well and looks super cool.
