What version of Fireworks CS4 do you use? On 10.0.0.495 (Windows) the States to Files export works fine.
From the two options that are grayed out on yours, the left one (Trim images) is clickable here. Only the right one (current page only) is grayed out, but it doesn't interfere with the function.
I tried and it worked without any issues for me as well.
The version is 10.0.0.495 on Mac OS X 10.5.5. It is from the retail Creative Suite DVD and i only installed a few of the programs. I just created a new file in FW CS4 to see if the old PNG was causing issues but that same problem is happening even with the new file. Perhaps it is a permissions issue?
States to files still isn't working and the checkboxes for the options on that export selection are disabled. I'm attaching a sample PNG that does not work for me. Maybe i am setting it up wrong?

I'm on Win XP here but I was able to export the states as files. Trim
Images was available but Current page was grayed out - not surprising as
this was a single page document.
Exported file names were onetwothree_s01.jpg, onetwothree_s02.jpg and

Thanks for trying the export. If anyone is able to try this on the DVD retail version on OS X 10.5.5 that would be helpful.
I should clarify: when i say the checkboxes are not working on the export selection i mean for "States to files" only. Both checkboxes are grayed out. The other exports seem to work but i haven't done all of them yet.
I repaired permissions on this machine and it still didn't help.
Thanks again for the replies. I finally solved the issue. I had to completely delete all references of Fireworks CS4 and then reinstall. It was almost like the CS4 install DVD tried to upgrade the beta version because even the about screen was messed up.
I had originally just installed Fireworks CS4 Retail over the CS4 beta and that was causing issues. Even reinstalling from the DVD over the previous install didn't work. I had to completely delete all Fireworks CS4 files and THEN reinstall from the DVD. I also removed (what i assume to be something to do with activation) an invisible file at the root of the drive that was "Abobe Fireworks CS4" then followed by a long string of junk characters. After removing that, Fireworks said that the activation had expired and wouldn't launch at all. I then deleted the app folder, reinstalled from the DVD and everything is fine now. I checked in Terminal and that file did not get reinstalled so it might have been, again, a leftover from the beta install.
Thanks again. Hopefully this helps someone else as well.
