Data Assist Search Wizard crashes Dreamweaver CS5

Data Assist Search Wizard crashes Dreamweaver CS5

I am trying to use the DA Search Wizard and each time I click Finish it crashes Dreamweaver CS5

I have read the various posts and gone thru the steps to delete the .dat file, reboot and restart Dreamweaver. Does not help. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled DataAssist.

One observation -- the cache file is not always there to delete. Specifically after a crash. If I open Dreamweaver and then close myself the .dat file is created. I then deleted the file, rebooted and tried again. Same problem.

This is a new problem, working on a new project. The DA Wizards worked fine for a previous project using the same Search features.

I am on a Mac, OS X 10.6.8

From time to time, I've seen Dreamweaver create two instances of a recordset on the page, especially if you have gone in to edit an existing recordset.

I had a problem with DA Search crashing for sometime and couldn't figure it out, but it appeared to be the duplicate recordset issue.

You will need to look in your code for the duplicate recordset as it won't show twice in the bindings / server behaviours panel.

Thanks Ian, I will check it out. I did notice a dup recordset in the code, thought it was added because DA Search needed it! Will try a fresh page and see what happens.

I had the same issue. Data Assist Search Wizard crashes as you finished the 4 step wizard. This was due to duplicate recordset code on the recordset it was trying to attach to.

Once I removed the duplicate rs code, it worked fine.
