Similar Problem - Different User - More Detail
I am also having a serious problem with CSS Sculptor 2. Installs fine, but when I go to create a new sculptor page, it fails to generate a preview after I pick a layout. It simply goes into limbo, telling me to Please Wait while it is generating a preview. If I try to subsequently pick a design, or click on Cancel, the Sculptor window then freezes completely, fading out to white. Then I have to kill (red X) the window to get rid of it, which takes down Dreamweaver as well.
Preview is not disabled in my WebAssist preferences.
I'm on Windows Vista 32-bit, dual displays, nVidia latest drivers, and Dreamweaver CS4 (Build 4117). I also have Dreamweaver CS3 on the same system. I deactivated all my WebAssist activations, and then reactivated this one in Dreamweaver CS4. I'm a SuperSuite user. Sculptor is the latest extension to be installed, except for CSS Menu Writer 2, which was installed after Sculptor 2. It too has the same sort of problem, with the window refusing to respond after being clicked upon. Moreover, I've found that SiteAssist Professional also stops responding when it tries to generate a preview, so I think there is some universal issue with preview generation that I'm encountering.
I even tried duplicating a layout in the Preset Manager (which btw took a long time to recognize due to documentation that still talks about the Layout Manager), and attempting to preview it, but that made no difference to the preview problem. I've installed and uninstalled both extensions, plus ALL the rest as well, and then reinstalled. Nothing seems to change the odd behavior, and unfortunately, I'm unable to use these products productively at the moment. I really don't want to turn off the preview...
Again, if you have suggestions for things to try, I will appreciate hearing them. At this point, I have no idea what to do to make it work properly, so any help is appreciated.
