Validation Toolkit crashes DW CS5.5
I just installed Validation Toolkit on a windows 7 64 bit machine running Xamp as a server and Dreamweaver CS5.5.
The first time I tried to use it I got an error message about Flash trying to access a site called null. That was easily fixed by allowing flash to access all my websites.
Then Dreamweaver crashed every time I ran a test validation on a file. It was unable to find any related files. As soon as I removed the server validation, Dreamweaver had no difficulty in finding the related files, and the page worked perfectly - of course with no validation being done. So it looks like its only the WA related files that it cannot find.
This extension is not the best documented one produced by WA, as it is not at all user friendly, but nevertheless, I have used it before on CS4 with none of these problems.
Its the latest version of the validation kit as I just downloaded it today, so I am a bit miffed. Is it supposed to be compatible with CS5.5 on a 64 bit machine (even though Dreamweaver always runs in 32 bit mode)?
I did follow the intructions in the readme file to install a replacement file, and expected that would be the end of the matter - but no.
Has anyone got a cure for this?
