Is anyone else having hassles using DW8 in Windows7?
Ever since I had Windows7 installed my DW closes down at random intervals which is a pain when I have coded a huge chunk before saving. I have searched the internet for a fix and have tried all the suggests but none have worked.

Yes. I'm not certain what version of DW but it was bundled in the most recent CS* distribution from Adobe and failed so often on Windows 7 64-bit that the developer ended up using Eclipse for development and ditching DW because of lost work.
She became so frustrated she had no choice. I was asked to try and help analyze and figure out the issue, but came up empty. You are right, all the online docs and support were of no help. I was actually beginning to wonder if it wasn't an OS issue as opposed to DW issue.
maybe this is because DW8 it's old for the platform windows 7. And it's not compatible at all. I suggest you to try DW cs2 minimum for w7, i'm using cs5 version it's version 11 build 4964, and i dont have issues. Because this version is full compatible with w7 64 bits, i'm on w7 ultimate 64 bits.
