Anyone have problems with extensions from DMXzone or dealing with them?

This Advanced Open Window 3 for Dreamweaver extension does not work on my MS XTPro system or our web server. I purchased this extension recently and have had nothing but troubles with it and the company support. This extension on some servers will actually load a page of code that is visible before playing a SWF file. Their support was of no help and basically told me that it worked fine on their system so too bad, so sad!  I went through all the back and forth and sending files to them for help and they still would not honor a reimbursement after they couldn't figure out the problem. You will not get any money back guarantee from these folks and they will not get back to you quickly as they are in the Netherlands on a different time than the US. "Warning" if you have trouble with this extension don't expect much. I will never buy another item from this company DMXzone again.

    I've used other DMX Zone Extensions without problems. 

    This extension looks like a relic from the early Macromedia days.  I can't imagine why you purchased it or why it's still being offered on the Adobe Exchange.  Geeez, this thing is ancient.

    Look at Fancybox.  It can handle just about anything you toss at it.

    Maybe you found an old listing or they have 2 listings on the same site....one of an older version.

    Quite possible.

    Can you show us an example of a page that isn't performing as expected?

    Don't give up yet.  Have you added a pre-loader for your SWF?  My guess without seeing the page or code is that the SWF is taking a lot longer to load than the rest of the page.  In IE, we called this phenomenon a Flash of Unstyled Content or FOUC. 

     

    How big is the SWF file?
