Power CMS & Data Bridge Incompatibility?

Power CMS & Data Bridge Incompatibility?

I was having terrible problems getting Power CMS to write to the database after installing Data Bridge. Before installing Data BRidge it worked fine.

After trying all the things mentioned in the forums I gave up and uninstalled Power CMS then reinstalled it. That fixed it.

Now When I try to use Security Assist from Data Bridge it craps out on me. I get a dialog for about a micro second and then it disappears. This happens no matter what command I invoke from the Security Assist menu.

My next step is to reinstall Data Bridge. My guess is that will fix it but will most likely break Power CMS.

Any ideas?

Is this the stand alone power CMS Builder? or are you using Design Extender?

If using the stand alone version of Power CMS Builder, Data Bridge will need to be installed after Power CMS Builder, the issues you describe sound like you may have installed Power CMS Builder after Data Bridge.

Yes it is the stand alone Power CMS Builder but Data Bridge was installed AFTER Power CMS Builder.

Doing that seems to have broken Power CMS Builder. I kept getting the message about "unable to edit database" that so many others have posted about. Power CMS Builder worked fine BEFORE I installed Data Bridge.

After trying all the suggested solutions with no effect, I reinstalled Power CMS Builder. That fixed the Power CMS Builder error but seems to have broken Data Bridge (or at least the Security Assist part - I didn't check anything else).

I am now reinstalling Data Bridge to restore its functionality but my guess is that that will make Power CMS Builder go back to it's "unable to edit database" error.

If so, it looks like one breaks the other. Hope I'm wrong! ;-)
