Recordset Variables gone on install of DA

Recordset Variables gone on install of DA


I have an interesting issue. Let me start by saying I purchased & am extremely excited about the Extension package since I've been happily using your products for a while.

I do have one strange and possibly serious issue upon installation, however. I closed ALL Adobe products and simulatiously installed DataAssist, Universal Email and Dynamic Form Elements through the Adobe Extension Manager (CS3). On each installation, I was given a warning that an old file (the same file each time) would be overwritten. Naturally I clicked to overwrite the old file. Whether or not that has contributed to this issue I have no idea, but now all my recordsets in any site fail to show the WHERE variables.

In more specific terms, previous recordsets in Dreamweaver CS3 would say something like SELECT * WHERE Site = colname. If you looked at the colname variable it would have a classic PHP value like $_GET['site']. Now the recordset on any previous file shows the variable missing. In other words, I still get the "SELECT * WHERE Site = colname" and the colname values are all there including the default "-1", but the "$_GET['site']" is absent.

So here's the troubleshooting steps to help you out:

1: Everything was working perfectly until I intalled the 3 products mentioned above.

2: I rebooted my computer and it did not help.

3: This is specific to THIS Dreamweaver / WebAssist installation for the following reasons:

a: Uploading files via F12 from Dreamweaver work fine on an actual production site in some cases for reasons unkown at this time, but work in other instances.

b: Viewing files in NotePlus++ show that the variables are actually there. It's as if the new Web Assist files are somehow set to read-only or some other restricting permission.

c: Opening the files on another computer in Dreamweaver CS3 that doesn't have Web Assist shows the recordset fine.

Hopefully these steps will provide you with an idea of what is going on. If you wish, I can install another Web Assist application and give you the exact file I mentioned above. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks for your help.
