Adobe CS6 does not work with Wine. Neither does 5.5, 5, 4, etc. Dreamweaver MX and some of the older versions can be made to work. Wine is very much a project in the works and many programs don't work at all, and probably never will. You'd be better running a Windows VM for that software, or look at native Linux alternatives (assuming there are any).

The WineHQ AppDB is a fantastic resource to learn whether your favorite Windows apps are supported:

Dreamweaver CS6 has the ranking of "garbage." I recommend installing Windows (dual boot or virtual machine) if you need CS6 for work/school.
