Nothing happens

I have Dreamweaver CS3 with site import 2.1.2 but when I go through the process to import a site, nothing happens. Please advise

When you go to File > Site Import do you see the panel for importing? Are you able to click on the go button to configure the import? When you finish configuring the setting the import should begin, is it just taking an unusually long time to run? If it sits there for more than a few minutes without updating then something must be wrong.

You can try clearing the cache to see if this has any effect, here are some instructions to do this:

Please post back and fill us in on the details so we can determine what to do next.

NOTHING on DWVR CS5 for Site Import

MAC (Snow Leopard) I've deleted the .dat cache file, I've restarted the system. This absolutely does not work. i'd like to see a fix so I can get my work done ($99 later!!!!!)

What do you see when you attempt to import the site after entering the details? Does the import bar just now show any progress? Do you ever get any files to be imported into your site? Sometimes the import can take a couple of minutes to run, if you have waited for more than a minute or two and do not see any progress then it is probably not importing the site.

Do you have a url that we can test with this to see if we get the same result? I actually have the same setup as you locally so this should be easy to test with this URL. Also, have you tried any other sites to see if this issue is specific to the site you are working with?
