Many thanks for posting back the details. It makes it much easier to follow this through.
Ah! Yes, the zipped archive needs to be unzipped (The files and folders extracted) to a folder that you can then use as your site root folder.
How these are extracted depends on whether you are using winzip, winrar, just the inbuilt Vista extractor or some other software - although essentially they are much the same!
To start, lets assume that you are starting with a zip file on your desktop called PowerStore300.zip
The method for Winzip (If I remember correctly) is
1. (a) Double-click it, select 'Extract' from the toolbar or from the 'Actions' menu, then navigate to and select a folder to extract the files to, or (b) (Easiest way) Right click the downloaded 'PowerStore300.zip' file and select Winzip > then 'Extract to Folder(perhaps some path to Desktop) PowerStore300'
2. You will then see an activity window saying, 'Processing File: PowerStore300.zip'
3. You will now have a normal (properly extracted) PowerStore300 folder on your desktop.
4. You can choose to leave it there for the purposes of uploading to your remote server, or you can put it somewhere permanent - perhaps in a 'Sites' folder in your documents folder. Either way, wherever you have it will need to be the location entered as the local root directory in your DreamWeaver Site definition.
If you don't have Winzip or Winrar installed:
The method for Vista's inbuilt extractor is:
1. Double click the PowerStore300.zip file on your desk top.
2. It will look pretty much like an ordinary folder, except on the toolbar there is an option 'Extract aff files'
3. Click on 'Extract all files'. An options window called 'Extract Compressed (Zipped) Folders' will open and suggest a path and folder to extract the files to. This is usually a folder in the same place your zipped file is, and with the same name (but without the '.zip')
4. Just accept that location for now (on your desktop) and click the 'Extract' button at the bottom of the options window.
5. You will see a progress bar saying it is Copying 1,496 items (11.9MB).
6. You will now have a normal (properly extracted) PowerStore300 folder on your desktop.
7. You can choose to leave it there for the purposes of uploading to your remote server, or you can put it somewhere permanent - perhaps in a 'Sites' folder in your documents folder. Either way, wherever you have it will need to be the location entered as the local root directory in your DreamWeaver Site definition.
And then go back to my post [#2 - Yesterday 10:32 PM] and work through from there. I think this is what will make the difference, or at least carry us forward a bit! I think my last instructions will make a bit more sense to you now with the files extracted!
Everyone's a noob at most stuff, so take your time and ask whatever questions you need to till we get this sorted.
(Edit): I'd like the opportunity to carry on working through this with you if I may.
