Your configuration folder may have become corrupted. You can rename the configuration folder to have Dreamweaver recreate it. Close Dreamweaver and go to:

--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8
--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9
--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US

Win Vista
--C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8
--C:Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9
--C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US

Mac OSX;
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Macromedia: Dreamweaver 8
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Adobe: Dreamweaver 9
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Adobe: Dreamweaver CS4: en_US

(Please note that <Your User Name> Should be replaced with the User name you use to log into your computer)

Rename the configuration folder to configuration_back. This will have the effect of disabling all of the installed extensions. You should open the extension manager and remove all extensions to clear the extension mangers cache. After removing the extensions you can then reinstall them making sure to download the latest versions from your order history.

On Windows Computers, The AppData or Application Data folders may be set to be hidden.

To View Hidden Folders in Windows Vista:
1) In The Windows Explorer, Click the "Organize" button
2) Select "Folders And Search Options"
3) Select the "View" tab
4) Click the "Show Hidden Folders And Files" radio button.

To View Hidden Folders in Windows XP:
1) On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
2)Click the View tab.
3) Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.

Digital file pro not working

I am using Digital File Pro (not version 2), but it is not working properly. here are the problems I noticed

1) when I select upload directory one level up called images .. it show ../ , and images are targeted to root folder, but when I change it manually from code to ../images/ , it uploads files to images folder outside my admin folder. but it is not recorded to database and when I try to view it, it says invalid image.

2) If I don't anything to upload folder location, it records file name to database, but file is not moved to root folder even.

I am a ADDT user, but trying to change to WA suites, but now I am having pain to do it. is there anyway we can get a fast response like online chat?

Hi Zulian,

Out of curiosity, why not just save the file name in the database and then call the folder location when you display the image?

But to answer your question, if you designate the folder as "../images/" it will save to the images folder outside your admin because you denoted ".." which means to go up one level. If you wanted to save it to the images folder within your admin folder instead you would need to use just "images/" or you could use the root path like "/admin/images/". Keep in mind "images/" and "/images/" are not the same thing, so be careful there. The first one is relative and the latter is based on root.

But, I would save the "Server File" from Digital File Pro's binding in your database and then call the folder when displaying your image like this:

<img src="images/<?php echo $row_queryname['myImage']; ?>" />

Hope this helps some,

Best regards,

1) This is a problem that seams to be introduced in the dw.browseForFolderURL function by Vista SP2 and Windows 7. There are two workarounds for the issue:
a) Browse to and select a folder within the folder you’re trying to select.
b) Manually enter the folder name in the text field that displays the folder URL

2) If you do not set an upload folder, the image will be uploaded to the same location as the page you applied Digital File pro to. for example, if you apply DFP to:

and do not set an upload location, the image will be uploaded to:

My problem is that image is not uploading to anywhere

Thanks Jason and my friend

I am having problem with uploading images, no matter admin folder or outside and inside. I just wanted to save a copy to save somewhere and to record the name of it in the database. then I can handle the rest. But like Jason said I am using Vista SP2.

please tell me how can I solve this problem. If not, I have to go back ADDT again, but I have all WA extensions since years ago, now I need to work with it, but if this fails.... I will be very frustrating too. I am sure you guys will have a solution for me. I am ready to buy DFP 2, but wanted to make sure this works first.

Gotcha... but just so you know... there are several functions in ADDT that no longer work correctly in PHP 5.2.10 and up. So if you are on a server that is getting the new 5.3, from there on out, you'll have problems with ADDT and the fact that Adobe is no longer supporting it could cause you a lot more problems.

OK, If the image is not uploading at all, there a few steps to take for debugging.

First, make sure that there are no server behavior that are redirecting to another page. After trying the image upload, we need to stay on the same page to be able to debug what is wrong.

Once the page is no longer redirecting, go to the bindings panel. Expand the Digital File Pro Global Status group and bind the debug info to the page. Post back what the debug info says after trying to upload.

also, to make sure that there is not a PHP error occurring, add the following at line 1:

Image get uploaded but it says invalid

Dear Jayson,
When I reapplied the server behavior, file is uploading to target folder, but it says invalid image when I tried to view it. also it is not recorded to database. I think I need more help from you, cos debug info not giving any error message so far.

I am thinking to buy DFP 2 to test with vista, so if I am not happy, can I refund it?
