Dreamweaver 8.0.2 wont update

Hi there, I am trying to update dreamweaver 8.0.0 to version 8.0.2 but everytime i run the installer i get this message;

the wizard was interupted before macromedia dreamweaver 8.0.2 updater could be completely installed

and then the program closes.

any help would be very grateful... :)

Thanks

Hi Venabili,

I'm willing to bet this is the same issue as Q_22064320.html (once the updater fails, you have to unintall/wipe/reinstall).

Not sure if you can award points on my bets, though.

Do you have any other Applications running which might stop the Installer from accessing files or the registry?
Retry the installation with all applications ended, if that does not work, boot in safe mode and try again.

To Boot in safe mode go to:
Start > Run > msconfig > BOOT.INI Tab > /Safeboot > OK

you will be asked to reboot, do so and once the machine started again it will load the Safe mode. On the next restart you get a prompt again if you wish to return to normal mode. Select Yes.

Hi Damian,

This may be related to this technote:

The 8.02 updater is really touchy and Adobe officially blames InstallShield.  You may have to uninstall DW, wipe the directories, reinstall it, re-apply the update.

Also, try going from 8.0 to 8.01, then 8.02 and see if you have better luck.
