Removing Extension Problem

Removing Extension Problem

I removed the CSS Form Builder extension form Dreamweaver CS4 using the Extension Manager. Now, when I start Dreamweaver, I get three error messages sequentially saying:

Unable to find file xxxxxx.xxx in teh Configuration/Floaters directory. The floater will not be shown.

The files referenced in the three dialogs are:
WA_Memento.htm
WA_SiteTools.htm
WA_SiteToolsProgress.htm

I am guessing the removal process for CSS Form Builder didn't do everything it should.

How do I get these from displaying when I start Dreamweaver?

If you don't have many other extensions installed, the best way to remove those errors would be to rename the configuration folder and install the rest of the products again.

The reason this error occurs on startup is that you probably had the floaters open in Dreamweaver (or when you shut down Dreamweaver) when you uninstalled Form Builder. Extension manager incorrectly uninstalls the files for them even though they're marked as shared.

Edit: After discussing with a coworker, a better way to resolve this issue is to go into Dreamweaver and go to the Window->Workspace Layout->Reset '<current workspace name>' menu. Then follow the common installation issues document and delete the winfilecache:
common_installation_issues.pdf

Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. If this doesn't work, you would want to rename the configuration folder.

What configuration file

Which configuration file are you saying I should delete in a Dreamweaver CS4/ WinVista 64 installation?

Reinstalling isn't an option for CSSFB.

That did it

The steps you suggested in your edited message fixed it.

Thanks

Great to hear it. The configuration directory is the one that is referred to in the common installation issues document:
common_installation_issues.pdf

If you run into any additional issues, feel free to open a new thread.

Hi: I ran with the same problem. To fix it, just do a <<Reset Classic>>.
