I get the following error message when I open my Dreamweaver 8 program:
<-----Start of Error Message-------->

The following JaveScript error(s) occurred:
At line 56 of file "C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8\Configuration\Shared\Common\Scripts\dwscriptsExtData.js";
ReferenceError: dwscripts is not defined

<-----End of Error Message-------->

It used to work ok in the past.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

Sounds like you'll need to re-install

Happened to me before. Thsi works (taken from a different forum):

"Fortunately, the fix is easy. Exit DW, delete the WinFileCache*.dat file in the Configuration folder, and then restart DW.

When tracking down this problem I found posts from other people who recommended deleting the entire Configuration folder. This works but you end up deleting more files than you really need to.

The WinFileCache*.dat file will be recreated next time you start DW 8.

NOTE: The "Application Data" folder is hidden by default, so you'll need to change your Windows Explorer Folder Options to View Hidden Folders.

Always remember to back up your Dreamweaver 8 folder before deleting files!"

This just happened to me and deleting the file didn't do it. I deleted the entire directory "Configuration" and that fixed it. I am on DW 8.0.1 Win XP. You will have to re-enable your extensions, but I did not lose my sites. You may want to back up sites first though to be safe. Good free tool here:
