If you have an older version of DW on CD, dig around on the CD for extras. You will find the program HomeSite, IMO one of the most robust text editors I've found. It has powerful S & R, internal validators, hundreds of invaluable tools.
Unfortunately, I believe Adobe killed it and it's no longer sold or supported, and I now hate them for it. :-)

Text editor you say... what I need is a tool to search for a string in multiple files, rather than searching for a string in one particular file. Can it do that?

Search and Replace 98 (assuming your referring to html strings?)

seem to be just what I'm looking for... I think... unfortunately the download links I've found all point to a website that no longer exist. do you know where to find it nowadays?

Second the Homesite (extended search/replace open file or all open files, or all files in folder, or all files in folder and subfolders).
I'm still running ver 4.1...

Haha . . . yes. You can search entire directories, optionally check a box to search subdirectories in that directory. You can specify file types in the search drop down (*.html,*.htm,*.shtml, etc . . . ) You can create CUSTOM search groups that will modify the search drop down (say, create one only to search .cgi or .pl files, .dat or .db files, only .php files, whatever you need.) It can support regular expressions in that search. You can specify whole word or case sensitivity in your search, skip or include html markup, and exclude any binary data. The search box is multiline text, not single line, it can search for a single word or entire blocks of text.
And, it can do all that in a search and replace function, exactly the same, just an extra text field for what to replace it with.
It generally rips through 1000 files or so in under 20 seconds with either function.
Plus it has thousands of other vital features I couldn't live without.

The very first link on a google search offers a download.

@rocknbill... Homesite 5.5 is still available, has a dollar cost after trial. The only thing that's happened there will be no further development (updates) to the program. I'm tempted to get it while it lasts... but the only reason I haven't is I don't know how it will run under Win7... and that'll be the killer as that will be the next iteration for any new systems I need.

Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate are supposed to offer XP Mode as a free download. You can run older programs, like HomeSite, just like they were on XP. If you don't have XP Mode available you could still run VMware or Virtual PC to accomplish the same. It wouldn't be as smooth as XP Mode, but it would be functional.
