Dreamweaver CS3 on Crossover Linux Pro 7.1.0 [NOT WORKING]

Install your licensed Dreamweaver CS3 into a Windows XP host (you can use a virtualized machine for this) and run it at least once (to correctly register the product and verify the serial code), then prepare to move some files and registry keys from your Windows XP installation to your Linux box:

  • C:\Program Files\Adobe must go into ~/.cxoffice/your-bottle/drive_c/Program Files/
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe must go into ~/.cxoffice/your-bottle/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files/
  • C:\Windows\Macromed must go into ~/.cxoffice/your-bottle/drive_c/Windows/
  • C:\Windows\WinSxs must go into ~/.cxoffice/your-bottle/drive_c/Windows/

Now you have to export your entire HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Macromedia/ registry key to a file and copy it into your Linux box. Now you have to run recode ucs-2..ascii exported.reg and import the recoded registry file into your-bottle registry.

You should now be able to run your Dreamweaver CS3 issuing the following command on the command line:
/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine –bottle your-bottle ~/.cxoffice/your-bottle/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Dreamweaver CS3/Dreamweaver.exe
