    Fireworks Extensions and Vista

    pixlor Level 4
      In coming here one day, I spotted a link to the kuler extension for Fireworks CS3. I tried it, but couldn't get it to work. I had double-clicked on the extension package and the Extension Manager showed it as being installed, but it didn't show up in Fireworks anywhere. It's apparently a quirk of Vista. Rolinstone posted the solution on the: Fireworks CS3 kuler Extension Blog

      I followed Rolinstone's advice: I navigated to the folder with the Extension Manager .exe, right-clicked on it, and selected "Run as administrator." For me, the kuler extension showed as installed, but disabled. I checked the check box, started Fireworks, and there it was. I think, if I want to install any other extensions, I will run the Extension Manager as administrator from the beginning.

      Now, I'm looking forward to experimenting with the kuler extension!

      cheers!

          pixlor,

          I really like the extension but wish I could login to my kuler account
          from it.
          Thanks for the link!

              Yeah...me too! I also would like it if I could resize the extension to see more swatches, but that sort of request belongs on the creator's blog.
              I think I'll play with it a while, first.

              Anyway, I'm really glad Rolinstone found the solution to extensions on Vista!
