Did you have Site Import 2 installed previously?

If so, Did you uninstall it from the extesnion manager before installing Site Import 3?

What version of Dreamweaver are you using?

Try deleting the Dreamweaver Cache file from the users configuration folder:

I am having the same issue...

I am using Win 7 and DW CS4...

I installed the CSS Design Suite a few days ago....Realized it wasn't for us, right now.
Immediately after successful install via AEM I get 4 dialog boxes on start up which read,

"Unable to find file WA_Sitetools_htm in the Configurations/Floaters directory. The floater will not be shown."

The other three dialog boxes say the same thing other than replacing the word "Sitetools" with "Progress_htm, wa_themeit.htm and WA_Memento.htm"

The first thing I did once realizing this is happening is delete the Wincache****.dat file<not sure of spelling but I followed the instructions at this site. To no avail the issue still exists.

I did notice while browsing around in the back that there are still remnants of these extensions. temp folder holds a site created with WA but that site has since been deleted and there is a WA_TIR folder which I do not know what is for...

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as we need DW to run as efficiently as possible.

go to Window -> Workspace Layout -> Reset '<your layout name>'

Man..........................................................If that is not a stupid little trick, eh?

I would have never guessed ;-)

I will not admit in the open forum how long I spent trying to figure this out prior to posting the question...

Nice work Jason.
