The instructions in this tutorial include the steps for installing WebAssist extensions in Adobe products.

arrow downLaunching the Extension Manager

All Dreamweaver extensions are installed through the extension manager. The Extension Manager has a different version for each version of your Adobe software. It is important to use the appropriate version of the Extension Manager with your version of Dreamweaver.

  1. From within Dreamweaver, choose Help.
  2. Select Manage Extensions.
  3. Close Dreamweaver, leaving only the Extension Manager open.
In order for any extensions to successfully install, you must ensure that Dreamweaver is completely closed.

arrow downInstalling an Extension

Through the Extension Manager, you will install MXP files. Once you have downloaded your MXP files from your WebAssist Download Center, follow these instructions for installing these files.

  1. Choose Dreamweaver from the Product list.
  2. Select Install.
  3. Accept the Extension Disclaimer by clicking Accept.
If you are installing or updating multiple extensions at one time, you may encounter an issue with Dreamweaver the installing is complete. To avoid this, you should delete the WinFileCache.dat (Windows users) or MacFileCache.dat (Mac OS X users) file before opening Dreamweaver.

I installed Design Extender on CC and a warning appeared that is not sign. What does this mean?


Team WebAssist: 5 Years, 3 Days, 15 Hours, 20 Minutes ago

danielsebas - Adobe no longer requires the extensions to be signed like they used to. If you install a newer version of the Extension Manager, you won't see that warning. But you don't need to install a newer version; you can instead just ignore the message, click ‘ok’ and it won’t cause any problems.
