WebAssist compatibility with CS5

Dear Technical Support,

Recently I upgraded my CS4 WEb Premium suite to CS5 WEb Premium suite. I installed CS5 in different Computer. After installation of the suite completed I tried Dreamweaver CS5 standard (before installing all my WebAssist Extensions) and Dreamweaver CS5 working fine, all features had been tried and working fine.
Then I installed my WebAssist Extensions using Extension Manager of CS5, all the extension was installed smoothly without any error, the only warning message happen when current file tried to overwrite older/newer file, which in this case I can select yes/no to continue...etc.

However after around 27 WebAssist extensions had been installed, my Dreamweaver CS5 failed to load at all. Welcome page come out and gone.

I tried to contact Adobe to get help, and their technical support said that they could not help 3'rd party program problem, they recommended me to contact WebAssist technical support instead.

Understood that we can not install WebAssist Search and DataAssist together. This issue had been taken care.
Do I miss some steps during reinstalling WebAssist Extension in CS5 environment?

Can you help me in this situation?!

Thank you so much for your attention, and I am looking forward to hear form you soon. (

It sounds like you have installed some extensions that are not compatible with Dreamweaver CS5.

See the following page for a list extensions that are compatible with CS5:

make sure you are using the most recent versions available from the download center.

If you are unsure about an extension, post the name and version and I will let you know if it is CS5 compatible.

Thank you Jason,
I will remove all of my extensions installed and reinstall with the latest version I have in my WebAssist account.

However can you let me know from various WebAssist existing extensions which one is the most current one.
By knowing this information I will install this extension on my latest installation step.
To avoid unnecessary manual overriding answer (yes/no confirmation) pop up message coming from Extension Manager application during installing each extension.
My question regarding this pop up, what is the best confirmation that we need to take? If the new current extension has content which is older than the existing one, can we just confirm all with 'yes' or do we need to say 'no', until all the interactive question terminate?.

Base upon the list of CS5 compatibility you gave, I need your final confirmation of my effected extension/s which will be installed refer to its version no.

Product Name Version
1. CSS Menu Writer 2.0.5
2. SiteAssist Prof 1.0.8
3. DataAssist 2.0.7
4. Site Import 2.1.2
5. Pro Maps for Google 1.0.7
6. eCart 5.0.2

Thank you for your support and help.

Im on the same system as yourself and have no problems using the latest versions.

Just check the release notes for each extension they tell you if they are the latest.

All the ones on the CS5 compatibility list are the latest and are all ok to install on CS5.

A quick check of your list and they are the latest builds.
