Logon Authenticate User

I'm trying to get a logon/restrict-access setup to properly work on my site. The Security Assist authentication does not work at all - it always crashed Dreamweaver and mucks up the code.

Here is how I try yo set this up:
1.) I add a Mysqli recordset that will select all from my access table in the dB
2.) then I use the Webassist/MySQLi "User Authentication" UI, and set the "Find Record" tab to assign the "getColumnVal" for both the username and password and assign the ID to a session under the "Store Values" tab from the record set (when I re-open the UI... these values are not displayed.

But I can enter ANYTHING into the logon form and it'll always open the restricted access page (see attachment).

I have not been able to ever get the logon/restrict-access setups to work on any of my sites using Webassist's authentication. Can you direct me to a step-by-step I can follow to rule out pilot error?
