Maintaining Trinity websites--Dreamweaver purchase and installation
Step 1: Purchase Dreamweaver licence
Dreamweaver is not available as part of a site licence in Trinity and so each area much purchase a Dreamweaver licence for each member of staff who wishes to install and use it.
If you are taking over from someone who had previously been using Dreamweaver in your area then you may not need to purchase a new licence if you can re-use the existing one. In that case, once you can establish who purchased the licence and which version of Dreamweaver they were using, you can contact Micromail (see below) to ask if they can provide you with the installation files and licence code for the relevant version of Dreamweaver.
If you do need to purchase a new licence then be aware that the latest version of Dreamweaver is Dreamweaver CC (Creative Cloud). The licences are provided at an educational discount for Trinity staff and, as per Adobe's current licensing arrangements, there is an annual licence fee. The older model of a once-off (perpetual) licence fee is no longer available. Micromail will need to know how many licences you require, if you are using PC or Mac, and your purchase order number. They will supply you with a licence code and a download link to install Dreamweaver.
