Fresh Install of Dreamweaver & Extensions Throw Errors

Fresh Install of Dreamweaver & Extensions Throw Errors

First I tried everything everywhere to try and get the three extensions installed.

I finally resorted to what "should" surely work....

I uninstalled every single extension i had.

I uninstalled my Dreamweaver (CS4 Master Collection)

I made sure the directory no longer existed or no junk had been left around
At this point i had lost everything.

I reinstalled dreamweaver. She started up like a pro, nice and clean and fresh.

I downloaded and installed and activated the following in this order: (Between each step i deleted the config dat file)

1. eCart 5.04
2. Design Extender 1.0.4
3. Data Bridge 1.0

Dreamweaver fired up just fine.

Now i am able to use certain parts of each extension, like add a datepicker, google maps ect.

But now i can not use any of the very important datassist or securassist features - Like add pages, add secure pages ect....

Attached is a screenshot of the errors that are being produced under each plugin.

I really need all this stuff abck up and running. The videos made it look so easy and effortless..... which it is not.

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate
Memory: 8.00 GB
System Type: 62-bit Operating System
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1035T Processor 2.60 GHz
Other Extensions: None (eCart, Design Extender & Data Bridge)

Compatability Issues CS4 vs CS5.5

In frustration I downloaded the CS5.5 Trial, which is only good for 30 days. I installed the extensions in the correct order, and to my surprise, most of it worked. The odd time it will cause dreamweaver to crash when generating pages. Of course this is only a 30 day (trial period) fix as I just spent all my money upgrading these extensions and can't afford to upgrade dreamweaver. I was hoping that the compatability upgrade to cs4 would be out soon. All the errors posted at the top of this thread were generated of a fresh install of CS4 and seem to be localized to that version.

A few outstanding bugs i have noticed in the versions (detailed below) which i am sure have been posted somewhere are:

Dataassist - When the wizard creates a database, it crashes if the database name already exists in the database (it should automatically try to rename it - or allow you too) (CS5.5 Error)

Security Assist - You still have to manually include the following file: "webassist/form_validations/wavt_validatedform_php.php" to get logins working.
(CS5.5 Error)

CSS Form Builder - Edit Form Dropdowns still missing values (showing up blank) . Also when i edit a form that was created in Security Assist (login form)- I get the error "Error Generating Preview: TypeError: DWFile.getAttributes(orig) has no proeprties" (CS4 & CS5.5 Error)

Keep us posted on whats going on with the hopefully very soon dot updates. In essense we are your beta testers.
