I went to launch Dreamweaver CS 5.5 and this message popped up:
XML parsing fatal error: Invalid document structure, line 1, file
C:\Documents...(file path)...Workspace\My Workspace.xml
It was followed by
The following panel layout is missing or could not be read:
The application will not have a correct layout. Please load one from
After that, Dreamweaver acted as if it was going to load, but never did. When I tried to close the program, it crashed.
I followed the file path and I saw two files:
My Workspace.xml 0kb and
My Workspace 5kb. The second one has an unknown file type. I deleted the first file and renamed the unknown file type to
My Workspace.xml; everything worked fine after that point.
Why did Dreamweaver do this? This has happened several times, but I have not changed anything that should affect that file type.
