SiteAssist Wizard Crashes Dreamweaver On Clicking Finish

SiteAssist Wizard Crashes Dreamweaver On Clicking Finish

I am an almost brand new user. I have used a couple of webassist products (Sculptor, Google search) but bought the whole package two days ago.

I am trying to create a site with the Site Assist Pro Wizard. Everytime I start it crashes Dreamweaver.

I have reloaded the extensions several times and tossed the dat file several times. Don't know if this is a good thing but it seems I no longer get a dat file. I do now know where to look without looking at the documentation.

I am using Dreamweaver CS4 (Version 10.0 Build 4117) on a Mac using OS 10.5.8.

I am getting (now) an index page, about page and folders for CSSMenuWriter, siteassistpro_css, siteassistpro_css,Templates.

I tried this on my laptop at home this morning and whatever I am doing stupid I am doing there as well since I got the same results.

Do you have any security, firewall or virus scan software running while going through the extension? Do you have a page open from the current site in Dreamweaver while running the extension? Are your site files stored on a local drive or on a network drive? Is this happening when you click to open the extension or when you click to finish the wizard?

answers to questions for Site Wizard crashing Dreamweaver

Do you have any security, firewall or virus scan software:

I have it at work but not at home and had the same issue both places

Do you have a page open from the current site in Dreamweaver while running the extension?
Yes I thought I was supposed to (let me know if I read that correctly)

Files stored on a local drive

Happenes when I click to finish the wizard and I do get a couple of pages and some folders

This user was also running into issues with SiteAssist Professional crashing dreamweaver:
showthread.php?t=6606

Can you try following the steps outlined to get rid of the error? The wasap_wizard.js file is located in the Configuration/Commands/ directory. The Configuration directory is the one where the macfilecache.dat file is located.

Give that a try and let me know if that resolves the issue for you.

It worked!

Take a look in this directory for the wasap_wizard.js file:
Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Adobe: Dreamweaver CS4: en_US: Commands

Find the dw.closeDocument(tempDOM); in the apply template section of the buildPages function and delete that line.

IT WORKED-better than sliced bread! I am copying the instructions above so you can reference this message the newbie that contacts you since the answer isn't as buried.

Have a great day, good luck surviving all the new users from the big sale
