Hi DMX-team

I've just updated to the new version. Now, when I try to use the behavior connector DW CS4 and CS5 immediately crashes.
I've had this problem earlier and got it fixed by completely uninstalling all (!) of my extensions and then recreate the configuration folders from scratch. Now, after the update to the new CSS Animator that happens again, so I think there might be a problem with the 1.06 update.
Is this a known issue? Are there any solutions yet?

Please advise.



P.S: Following is the error code:
AppName: dreamweaver.exe AppVer: ModName: mfc90u.dll
ModVer: 9.0.30729.4137 Offset: 00213251

Hello Willi.

Can you tell us which behavior you tried to apply when the crash appears ?

Hi Vulcho

Thanks for coming back so fast.

The crash appears as soon as the behavior connector GUI loads. No matter which extension I want to add a behavior.
The reason I posted this in the CSS Animator forum is just, that I did not have the problem before upgrading to 1.06.

Hi Vulcho

Yes. Believe it or not, I'm clearing the DW cache file everytime I start DW. Seemed to be running much more stable...

Hello Willi,

Do you have the security assist/form toolkit extensions from Webassist installed?

Willi can you try to remove the Security Assist extension , clear DW cache , reinstall the Advanced CSS Animator , and try again to use the behavior connector ?

Hi Teodor

I've followed your advice and also uninstalled, then reinstalled the WA extensions, as mentioned in the two links you sent me.
That fixed the issue in CS4.
In CS5 I simply deactivated the WA extensions and then reactivated them successfully.

However, it's not clear to me how and why. There's simply no logical explanation for this. Especially the different methods for CS4 and CS5 are confusing...

Maybe the installing order --> WA after --> CSS Animator could be the reason.

Thank you very much for your help.
