Installation Problem

Installation Problem

Hi, - have just bought DataAssist, and am falling at the first hurdle!

Extension seems to install and register OK. I go through the whole procedure to create a set of pages (steps 1 through 10) and when I click finish, firstly I get error message, followed by Dreamweaver crashing.

Update info:

The fault happens in CS4. In DW CS3, the pages are created - but I don't get to see the preview as I'm going through the process.

In you screen shot, it looks like you have a Database column named "When?". this is not a legal column name. you should not use punctuation in your column names. even without the punctuation, the name "when" is an internal MySQL function is considered a MySQL reserved word. MySQL reserved words should be avoided as column names. see the following for a full list of reserved words:

In your Dreamweaver Site definition, check the Local Info tab and make sure the "Create Links Relative to" Option is set to "Document" instead of "Site"

Thank you

Many thanks Jason,

Everything went very smoothly - a very slick app, this.

Linking is already relative to document, and the pages were all up and running smoothly live - having done them in CS3, and even with the 'Where?' column. So I guess that CS4 is a little stricter. Would that column header have caused the Visual C++ Runtime error? Probably, as all is well now.

Anyway, I have amended the column name throughout the admin pages and in the SQL - I like to find out the correct way of doing things, and appreciate your taking the time to explain this - it will undoubtedly save me from certain anguish on future projects.
