Dreamweaver 8 on Win7-64

Dreamweaver 8 (studio 8, 2004)

Dreamweaver 8 has problems with Windows 7 64-bit.

We just encountered an issue where Dreamweaver would not save FTP names or passwords, and all efforts to update to 8.0.2 failed. Even the websites that linked to the 'unwrapped' file we needed simply failed with a 404 error.

This is the only website I found that has a functional link to the actual file you need. Follow these directions to upgrade Dreamweaver 8 to 8.0.2 on a Windows 7 64-bit machine.

Note that you will need the original CD, and to find the Macromedia_Dreamweaver_8.msi file the installer requires for validation, you will need to browse into the Dreamweaver8\FSCOMMAND folder.
