Cannot install ProMaps in Dreamweaver CS5

Cannot install ProMaps in Dreamweaver CS5

I've just upgraded to Dreamweaver CS5 on my Mac using 10.7.4. When I try to install ProMaps with Extension Manager (which converted the ProMaps .mxp file to a .zxp file), I get an error message "This extension cannot be installed, it requires Dreamweaver 8 or greater". Because I'm using Dreamweaver CS5, this message makes no sense. I'm using ProMapsGoogle106.mxp - not sure what version that is, but it isn't working. How can I make this work?

Thanks.

this can happen if you have multiple versions of Dreamweaver installed, and you double click the mxp file to start the installation.


If the older extension manager is the default, you will get this error.

To prevent this, you will need to start the installation manually.

Open the CS5 extension manager, then click the install icon.

this will open a mac finder window, browse to the location where you saved the Pro maps MXP file to, and select it to start the install.

Hi Jason,

'scuse my ignorance but can you explain the difference between mxp and zxp please? I'm getting the impression from the net that zxp is for DreamweaverCC. Is that correct or am I way off beam?

Thanks,

John

My Understanding is that ZXP and MXP are both Adobe Extension Formats.

The ZXP Format should be used for extensions that target Dreamweaver CS 5 and Above.

The MXP Format should be used if the extension will be compatible with versions of Dreamweaver bellow CS5.


but for specifics, i would suggest posting to the adobe forums.

Thanks Jason,

It's just that I noticed on another site (I was just looking, honest) that they offered the two formats for down load. One was for CS and the other for CC. It confused me. But I'm happy with your reply. I had visions of HAVING to upgrade to CC.
