Dreamweaver error: while executing onLoad in RecordsetFind.htm, the following JavaScript error(s)

Are you getting the following errors message when using Dreamweaver CS4? (Note that it may happen to Dreamweaver Professional 8 and CS3 as well).

The following translators were not loaded due to errors:
_________.htm: has configuration information that is invalid.

In my case it also generate the following error message when you start and close dreamweaver.

while executing onLoad in RecordsetFind.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occured:
In file “RecordsetFind”:
findRs is not defined

While executing onLoad in TeamAdminTempDelete.html, the following JavaScript error(s) occured:
In file “TeamAdminTempDelete”:
delTempFile is not defined

It turns out that there is something wrong with your Dreamweaver configuration files. It may be caused by file corrupt, or changes in your system.

To solve this you will have to remove the current configuration folders, so that Dreamweaver will generate new one for you. To do that, close your Dreamweaver and go to the following folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US

Rename the “Configuration” folder in to “Configuration-old”, and then fire up your Dreamweaver.

It should generate the new Configuration folder. Now you might loose your last configuration such as the sidebar width, last used view, etc.

  1. hi, I’m still getting the same error. I followed your instruction but still getting the same issues. Below i have pasted the alert message which i’m getting when i attempt to save my dreamweaver page

    1. Hi Arun, What’s your operating system? If you are using MAC OS and dreamweaver CS4 you can try the following tutorial from adobe

      If you are using Windows and have deleted the configuration file but still having the same problem, that’s strange. The source of problem might not be the same with this guide. Which Dreamweaver version are you using?

  2. why i don’t see this in my computer T-T

    C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US

  3. i use window xp sp 3
    dreamweaver cs4 master collection

    folder “Application Data” don’t appear in my
    C:\Documents and Settings\cheer


    1. Hi Cheer,
      okay it might be because you haven’t set the windows explorer to display hidden files ( Application Data folder is a hidden folder).
      In your windows explorer toolbar, choose Tools -> Folder Options -> View tab. Now in advanced settings “Hidden files and folders” set it to “Show hidden files, folders and drives”. That should deal your problem 🙂

  4. Thank you so much!! I ended up finding another site the also recommended moving the custom folders from the old config folder… between your two suggestions I’m back in business!

  5. lovly it works!
    keep up the great work

    Applicationmap i hidden! change the settings for the map and it shuld fix the problem;

    C:\Users\”Username”\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4

  6. Nice work, OP! This fix corrected the minor annoyance of the error message that I was getting (everything seemed to be working just fine, once in DW).

  11. Hello. I have os Windows 7 /64 bit and just recently started to receive such errors and more. Is this due to Java updates. I did as instructed but when restarting DW cs4 “no new configuration ” file folder was created. Errors continue to exist

  12. Thank you. This thread may be aging, but the advice is still sound. I just had this problem with CS4 and the fix worked first time.

  13. Thank you! I was expecting something complicated (like re-installing Dreamweaver), or that by re-creating the configuration, I’d also have to re-enter all the info on all the sites I manage. Nope, it fixed the error, and so far, all my settings seem the same!

  14. oh man! ok, so i tried your solution yesterday and it worked! This morning I came in to my office and fired up my DW and crap! Tried the same solution and it didn’t work. any other advice you can offer would be appreciated.

  15. Thanks for the fix. Just ran into this error as I logged in this morning and fired up CS4. 1 google search and 2 minutes later it is fixed.

    ….we now resume our regularly scheduled morning coffee.

  16. wow, thank you so much, aftter fumbling so much through different forums and finally i find a solution that works.thank you so much. it was starting to frustrate me

  17. Thanks a lot for the solution. I was getting …In file “TeamAdminTempDelete”:
    delTempFile is not defined… error. Now, this has been resolved. Thank you very much.

    C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS5.5\en_US

    Dreamweaver 8 saying this: Upon executing onLoad in RecordsetFind.htm, the following errors of Java have been produced script:

    “” In File RecordsetFind””

    ReferenceError: findR is not defines and set me in this paginates web that explains as to eliminate that problem

    But in the section C is supposed that has to be Documents and Settings but I do not see it what if I see they are a monton of folders with numbers and
