Solved: Dreamweaver CS5 Closes Immediately on Start up

This seems a weird problem on Dreamweaver CS5.When you open the program, it closes straightly without giving an error message or warning.It happens even not opening any file.I researched through web and somebody mentioned in a forum that issue might be the corrupted cache file.
I locate the cache file folder then, I renamed it. I start the Dreamweaver again, and Bingo! it works like spell, everything is working fine now.

Here's the Adobe forum thread created by David_Powers could help you find the cache file path. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811

The solution is pretty simple.Just  rename or delete  the entire configuration folder and your Dreamweaver CS5 will start fine without losing any thing.Dreamweaver CS5 will recreate a new configuration file automatically.
