SA problem


I am having a sustained problem with using Random Password in Security Assist. I am using DW CS5 on win 7.
I posted the screenshot of what I get here.
I have not seen this particular problem before.
To get a clearer picture of what I am trying to communicate across, this recipe very closely<>

At precisely where that video is at 33/105 I gt the error (please see the screenshot I posted) - it apparently is not finding the session..(?)

Can anyone PLEASE help

Thanks in advance

With the page closed try removing, then adding the random password binding to the list again then try it out. If you have the same problem then you should try deleting the cache file to see if that fixes the issue, here are the steps to try for this:


If the issue persists please post back and let us know. Also, are you able to make use of the random password binding for any other dynamic value?

Hi Eric

First let me say thank you very much for the response.
Well I had already tried more or less all the steps.
Meanwhile, yes I found I am able to make use of the random password binding for a different dynamic value - only it's not working for the one I wanted (Cookies toolkit -> Set session value).

Just for your information I tried it with Dw CS4 (I still have it on my machine) and it works fine there - I notice that it seems to call the splash page of eCart 4 as it make the connection and works very well thereafter (eCart 4 is present on my Dw CS4 ext manager).

So from what I have observed it seems to be that there is some sort of component it wants that is found in eCart?
This seems true - I observed it before as well in the past when using CS3 and CS4 - it always worked then with no problems - but I noticed that when I got to the random password part and tried to bind the Session value from cookies toolkit it showed the ecart spalsh icone for a split second and then would get attached - no problem.

I had also wanted to ask I hope there is no adverse effect in having both Dw CS 4 and 5 on my machine at the same time

The set session value server behavior is part of the eCart extension. When it comes to the value that you are attempting to insert now with the cookies toolkit how exactly are you setting this up? Are you just applying the set session cookie to the random password, or is there something else in play? Please post back with the specific steps you are taking that are getting you this error so that we can look into this further with you.

As for having multiple versions of DW installed at one time this is not a problem, I have a similar setup myself.

The steps taken

Thanks again Eric,
Well the steps I have taken were excatly as the solution recipies video immediately under the Solutions Recipies > Introduction to Security Assist (this page <a href=""></a>.
I followed the following videos to the tee:

Running the wizard (Interactive Tutorial)

Setting up Log In (Interactive Tutorial)

Modifying Registration (Interactive Tutorial)

Changing the Update Profile (Interactive Tutorial)

Creating a New Password page (Interactive Tutorial)

Updating Send Password (Interactive Tutorial) - in this particular video is the part where I experience the problem -- around where the video frame is 33/105.

I can send you the code from the page(s) if you want.

I was able to check this out with the Set Session Value server behavior in the Cookies extension. I can confirm that the splash screen for eCart appears when I do this, but it seems to add it to the page without issue.

It seems that you might be experiencing an issue with a corruption of your configuration folder. If this is the case you will need to follow the steps listed here to undo any corruption that might have occurred:


If you continue to have the problem after going through these steps please post back and let us know.
