i got it
i figured out that for some reason when i have all the super suites on at the same time ecart wont work correctly so i will use one at a time to prevent conflicts.
i have ecart 5.0.7 and i did reinstall it 3 times to no avail but turning off all extentions and turning on only ecart, made it work with dreamweaver 12.0 build 5808. It works as expected and is a very powerful tool.
thanks for your help jason
