Hello, I'm very brand new to Mac. But I have Dreamweaver cs5.5 installed (came with it) and it is a new macbook pro.

I downloaded the Xcode 4.3.2 (took 7 hours on a high speed connection).

When I open up Dreamweaver and click on site, then Mobile applications, then configure application framework... the path doesnt save.

All I know to choose right now is the applications folder because that is the only place I see the icon for what I downloaded.

 

Here is the most frustrating part... When I choose that, or type in /Developer (as I saw online somewhere) or anything else, I click SAVE and it does not save anything in that space.

 

I'm wondering if this means I don't have the SDK, or if I don't know where it saved to, or ... really I'm clueless. Do I have to be a paid member of the developer end to get the sdk?

 

I managed to get the droid one for DW easy. Matter of minutes it was all done. But I've been at this iso part for days now.

 

Any help would be worth so much gratitude. Really....... I'm on the brink of losing my sanity here

    Xcode 4.3.2 is an Application....the path is inside the bundle/package, such as:

    /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer

    Select Xcode, right-click and choose 'Show Package Contents' then drill down from there. Locate whatever, do  'get into' and copy the path from there. Don't mess around inside or you risk borking Xcode

    Where did you get this machine? Dreamweaver does not normally come with it.

     

    I downloaded the Xcode 4.3.2 (took 7 hours on a high speed connection).

     

    What is "high speed"? Xcode isn't that big. Even a modest DSL connection should be able to download it in about half an hour.

    What are you actually trying to do? Dreamweaver is ancient. You mentioned "droid". Are you building apps? With Dreamweaver?

    If your mouse/touchpad isn't configured to the contextual menu with a right click, do a control-click instead.

     

    Personally, I think you should use Apple's IDE, Xcode, to build apps.

    You should take that MB to someone who knows OS X.

     

    You should use the DW forums for support for that product.

    I got it from the college I go to. It came packed full of stuff. And it's not an ancient version of Dreamweaver.

     

     

    I meant that the entire concept of Dreamweaver is ancient. Professional web designers and app developers don't use Dreamweaver - for anything.

     

    What I mean by "high speed" is high speed internet connection. I can't explain why it took so long, but based on over 1,000 comments on the iTunes download for this, I'm not the only one at all.

     

    Yes, there are many people with bad internet connections. I'm just telling you that someone is ripping you off, that's all.

     

    Yes... I'm building apps with Dreamweaver. There is an entire part of Dreamwever cs5.5 that is designed for it.

     

    Use Xcode instead. If you want to build mobile apps, use either Dashcode or modern tools like JQuery. I wouldn't bother with android at all.

     

    Last and most importantly - no one here has any knowledge of Dreamweaver. If you want to use that, you would have to ask in the Adobe forums. It is like using Flash. You confine yourself to one company's toolchain. It is easy to get pidgeonholed into being just a "Dreamweaver guy". That is a career-limiting move.

    You still need to test on an actual device you are targeting.

     

    If you don't, you're doing yourself, the Apple review team and ultimately the users of the app a disservice.

     

    The Xcode simulator is NOT sufficient.

     

    You've got a deadline and you know nothing about iOS development?

     

    Good luck with that.

    My only option is to use DW right now. And FYI, there are LOTS of developers that use DW to make apps that you probably just aren't aware of. They just refuse to help me out on account of competition reduction.

    No, that isn't the case. No one uses Dreamweaver to create apps. Dreamweaver is a tired old program from a decade ago that Adobe is still trying to push on people as part of its over-priced "creative suite" of products.

     

    I realize you are in school. The goal is to learn, isn't it? There are some very experienced people in this thread who have given you some excellent advice. If your assignment is supposed to be done in Dreamweaver, then, yes - you should do it in Dreamweaver. None of us can help you with that because we haven't used Dreamweaver in ten years - literally. We can give you good suggestions on how to make a nice web app in Xcode, Dashcode, or a number of 3rd party packaging tools. You are the first and only person I have ever heard of that tried to use Dreamweaver. You are really out on your own on this one.

    What SDK are you talking about? This iOS SDK? If you are using Dreamweaver, then what do you need the SDK for? The only logical reason would be to run the iOS simulator, but you said you aren't even doing that. Does Dreamweaver need the SDK for something? If so, you have to tell us that because no one here uses Dreamweaver.

     

    Perhaps Dreamweaver is trying to use some of the internal, iOS Javascript or something. I'm sure it would be looking in /Developer for Xcode. It isn't there anymore. If you want that old version of Xcode, you will have to register as a developer, use the All downloads link, and find an old version of Xcode that Dreamweaver supports. You should be able to do that with a free developer account.

     

    Sadly, I don't doubt that you are correct about Dreamweaver. It is like becoming a Visual Basic developer or an Access DBA - and stopping there. There are many people who do that, but it is a third-tier career track. Mastery of Dreamweaver has zero market value.
