Wrong serial number after resetting activations

Wrong serial number after resetting activations

Using Dreamweaver CC 2017 on Windows 10
I have not used my WA extensions for a while, but now have a project where I need to use them, particularly MySQLi SBs
(I have latest Data Bridge, Design Extender & MySQLi SB installed)
DW asks for my Data Bridge serial number when I try to use anything WebAssist.
But when I enter my correct Data Bridge serial number, it gives it a big fat cross!!

I reset my activations, then tried to use a WA extension again after opening and closing DW, but same problem with the serial number.

So then I uninstalled all 3 WA extensions from the DMXzone Extension Manager, restarted my PC just in case, then reinstalled via DMXzone EM in this order::
Data Bridge, Design Extender then MySQLi SBs but one at a time.

Checked each install in DW by first opening a Data Bridge item, entering the serial number (OK) before installing DE, checking, serial no OK, etc.
All serials accepted.

So all was fine at last, or so i thought!

I'm converting a site with the old DW SBs to MySQLi that does not use any Data Bridge functionality.
Added a dynamic MySQLi connection - all good
Tried to add a recordset to the page, but the Data Bridge activation page again pops up.
Why does it not ask for the MySQLi serial number?
Added my serial no for DBr again which it does not accept.
So reset the activations again - BTW it reported that 66 activations were reset - that sounds odd after I reset the activations in the first round a few days ago.
Still won't accept the serial number.

So I'm going around in circles!

It is probably an issue with the Data Bridge BETA serial code getting put into the MySQLi code base. I'm in the process of combining the extensions and most likely have accidentally added some of the code into the MySQLi code base in a recent build.

The easiest solution would be to uninstall Data Bridge and MySQLi Server Behaviors and install the Data Bridge BETA using the link on the top of the page. It will actually help you convert the site to MySQLi since it includes conversion functionality that doesn't exist in the MySQLi code base.

Thanks Ray

I managed to uninstall all WA extensions, then reinstalled all 5 starting with DataBridge v2 Beta.
Serial number for DataBridge v2 Beta accepted.
Now starting to convert my project to MySQLi.
There are a few issues with MySQLi that have cropped up, but I'll check in that forum for any answers before I post.
