dreamweaver asking me to open a php doc when i already have one open

Recent PC purchase, so I reinstall Dreamweaver, xamp php v7.4 and latest version of DB v2.3.5

localhost tested as working fine and so are basic php pages.

However, if when I attempt to start the DataAssist interface from the webassist menu, dreamweaver throws me an alert informing me to open a php document first - despite a php doc already open
Whilst DW for some reason is not seeing the php doc present and open, i cant use any of my DataBridge tools.

I have created a site and i have a php document open in the same folder i want the DA pages to create.

Any thoughts?

That can happen if the php page you have opened isn't saved into a site defined in dreamweaver with a working testing server. If you have a working testing server and a php page opened saved into that site, then I'll have to debug this with you in screen sharing. Just reply to this thread with a phone number in the private area and I'll call you to take a look.

Thanks Ray.

Interestingly when I added a country tag at the top of the page, saved, closed and reopened, the issue had disappeared.
I have no idea if this is a coincidence. its not re-occurred since.
