Dreamweaver Error: While executing onLoad in RecordsetFind.htm

I got this error a number of times, most of the people get it on CS4. I even got it on Macromedia Dreamweaver8.
While executing onLoad in RecordsetFind.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occured:
In file “RecordsetFind”:
ReferenceError: findRs is not defined

 This error is because of problems in Dreamweaver configuration files. Dreamweaver manages its own files for width of panels, their positions, current options etc. So, because of problems in these files, it throws this error.

To solve this, the best way is to remove the Dreamweaver configuration files. When next time Dreamweaver is opened it will automatically generate these files, but you will lose displaying panels, their positions etc. These will be set to defaults.

To do this, go to following directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\your-user-name\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8\Configuration
in case of Dreamweaver 8
C:\Documents and Settings\your-user-name\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US
for CS4 etc.

And rename the Configuration folder to something else, I put it Configuration_old.

Now open up Dreamweaver, It will work fine.
