Resolution for 12.0.3 users running into BrowserLab and Business Catalyst Issues

The Adobe Dreamweaver team made a patch available with version number 12.0.3 for Perpetual customers on 12/12/2012.

The patch had a side effect where Business Catalyst and BrowserLab panel will stop functioning for some users. If you are a 12.0.2 user, you will not run into such an issue. You can resolve this issue by downloading the zip from here and following the steps below:

Steps to be followed:

  1. Download and unzip the attached folder onto your system.
  2. Open the extracted folder.
  3. Right click on “BLBC_Extension_Update.bat” file that is present, to get context menu.
    1. If you are on Win Vista, Win7 or Win8 platform, choose “Run as administrator” option in the context menu. (**this step is very important as not running the batch script as an administrator, will not allow the script to copy files into system\program files\ folder)
    2. If you are on Win XP, just double click on the batch file to run.
    3. Follow the instructions shown in console and once copy of files is complete, launch Dreamweaver CS6 to check if BrowserLab extension is working or not.

The zip file contains required BL & BC files along with a batch script, that will copy files into corresponding extensions folder on the system. The zip file contains HTML, CSS & JS files and no executables.

Welcome back! Happy New Year and by the way… Proto!

Hello Dreamweaver-ers,

Happy New Year to you all! Sincerely hoping your holidays were wonderful and relaxing, and full of friends and family.

As recently announced on the Creative Cloud team blog, Adobe has decided to refocus our touch app development efforts – as part of this we are no longer making Adobe Proto available.

If you already have Proto then you can of course continue using the app – Dreamweaver CS6 (version 12.0.1 and later) includes the ability to open files created with Proto and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. If you are using Dreamweaver CS5 or CS5.5 then you need the Proto extension for Dreamweaver, which until recently was hosted on Adobe Labs – this was removed at the time of making the announcement, but we have re-instated the download – available here.

Support for Proto continues to be available through our forums.

While the decision to no longer offer Proto was hard to make, we are committed to creating new and better tools to support web designers and developers – more information will be shared here and on the Creative Cloud blog in the future.
