i thought UE 2.8 was the latest version?
i did submit a support ticket with the issues of the browser not rendering.
it produced error message concerning my server set up. I will post to this thread when i get it resolved.
as far as not being able to open ecart checkout wizard; i had to rename my configuration file for dreamweaver C4, which disabled all web assist extensions. then i had to remove all extensions. then i reinstalled eCart4 and did not install UE and i am now able to open ecart checkout wizard. i will complete the checkout wizard to the point of needing email and then i will reinstall universal email. i will post what results i get.
