Troubleshooting Dreamweaver cs5

I am having trouble with Dreamweaver CS5 crashing when applying spry form validation.  I know there is a way to trash my preferences or something to clean the slate.  But I can't remember the procedure.

Hi baub_eis,

There are two ways to do it.  The least invasive is to close DW and delete the WinFileCache-xxxxxx.dat file located in:

C:\Users\YOU\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS5\en_US\Configuration

If that doesn't fix it, then rename the whole Configuration folder to Configuration.old and reopen DW.

Can't seem to find the file.  Thats what I had done in the past.  I'm using windows xp.  and I am looking in the c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS5\en_US\Configuration

I don't want to rename the configuration folder because I use a lot of extensions and would have to reinstall all of those.....

That's the right path, assuming you are logged in as Administrator.  The file is in that folder and the -xxxxxxxx part is a random number.  It will have a recent timestamp, so you may want to sort by modification date.
