MenuWriter2 or eCart4 crashes Dreamweaver CS4

I don't know which of these is the culprit...
yesterday I installed eCart4 but haven't had time to play with it yet.

Today I installed MenuWriter2.

Tried to use MenuWriter2 in DreamWeaver4. Dreamweaver crashes. (MenuWriter1 used to work OK.

Tried to create a new CSS Sculptor page (which USED TO work properly) -- now it gives "In file 'wacs_wizard': initializeUI is not defined."

Not happy.

Please try deleting the filecache.dat file while Dreamweaver is closed. This seems to be a common problem in CS4 if a script file is updated and not the associated html file it starts throwing wild errors that don't really exist. Deleting this file will usually clear the problem.

Ray,

Can you illuminate more on where we can find this filecache.dat, please? I'm having the same problem with CS4 and Menu Writer 2.

Thanks.

on windows, go to windows explorer and type: %appdata%

Then browse to Adobe/Dreamweaver CS4/en_us/Configuration

you will find a .dat file that includes winfilecache in the name. Delete that file with DW closed and then restart DW.
