    Extension Error Messages

    Morrell Aberdeen
      For some strange and unknown reason, I am suddenly unable to install any Dreamweaver extension. When I attempt to install any extension, I am receiving the message "Cannot Update a file. The extension will not be installed". I am using Dreamweaver 8.0.2. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Dreamweaver, deleted/renamed configuration files without any success. Are there any suggestions?
      Thanks!

          You can try this simple fix -

          Quit DW.

          Find this folder -

          C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver
          8\Configuration\WinFileCache-*.dat
          (these folders are normally hidden - you may have to use Explorer > Tools >
          Folder Options to unhide them)

          and delete it.

          Restart DW. Works better?
