DWCS4 Trial - Migrating Extensions from DWCS3 - DWCS4 crashes

DWCS4 Trial - Migrating Extensions from DWCS3 - DWCS4 crashes

I removed all of the older WA extensions and then re-installed the newest ones (downloaded today from my WA Account).....
Then I deleted the wincache.dat file and removed all start-up and floater memento files, just in case.
DWCS3 still stalls out while launching. Just a splash screen and then a blank white screen.
Please help? I was loving DWCS3 until I tried to use my WA extensions with it. Now it's turning into a fairly big nightmare. 1 day of productivity lost and counting.

Thanks again for any help that anyone can offer!

I recently installed DWCS4 trial and still have DWSC3 installed. I used the auto-migrate feature for getting my WA extensions activated in DWCS4 to work but now when I launch it, it crashes. No error message. It just gets stuck at the splash screen with the application screen partially loaded behind it.

I'm in the process of disabling the WA extensions in DWCS3. Is this what I should be doing? I saw somewhere that the same version of an extension can't be enabled on two versions of DW. Is this correct? I have a feeling that this isn't the thing to do..........*crossing fingers*

I guess I just need some general information about getting previously purchased and enabled WA extensions to work in DWCS4. Can't find any thorough information on it in the forums or on the WA website.

BTW....I'm on a PC WINXP PRO and have the WA Web Developer Suite, Site Assist Pro, CSS Menu Writer, Universal E-Mail and a couple of others installed......

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide!

FINALLY....DWCS4 not crashing any longer.

deleting the memento files from the start up and floater folders wasn't enough. I had to delete the memento related files from the commands folder as well.

now, all is good.

Probably just had to delete your winfilecache .dat file.
