A menu bar (tagged with opening and closing menu bar tags) is a discrete menu or set of menus.

I have been http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=32347 having problems trying to use Adobe's Extension Manager with dreamweaver extensions. If I try to add an extension I get a message "Can't update menus. The extension will not be installed". This applies to new extensions or disabled extensions. I have deleted the menus.xml file and added all four of my chosen extensions. These extensions are from two different companies. They install through extension dreamweaver menus.xml manager fine. I then load up Dreamweaver which on this first running must notice the sourceanywhere files and amends the menus.xml file. At this stage bthe sourcecontrol menu item does not exist. Exit dreamweaver and reload. Sourcecontrol is there. Quit dreamweaver and then try to add a fifth extension and get the "can't update menus" message all over again. Any ideas if the creation of those menu items is doing something a little unusual to the menus.xml file? On Vista dreamweaver menus.xml error Business and behaviour looks to be same for administrator and for my owb user (who is also a member of domain admins).

It seems that after being slightly modified by SourceAnywhere Hosted, the menus.xml file cannot be recognized by some of the extensions any longer. We will look into this issue and keep you updated on the outcomes. Thanks. _________________Catherine SeaDynamsoft Support TeamFollow us@Twitter, Facebook Top sumo Post subject: Re: Updating of menus.xml in Dreamweaver CS3Posted: Sun Dec 21, 2008 6:31 am Joined: Fri Jun 15, 2007 2:17 pmPosts: 10 Hi there - wondered if there were any changes to the status of this issue. I have just moved domains which means new user areas etc. - I tried bringing a plugin into dreamweaver and get the same message. Deleting menus.xml allows me to install the plugin and it looks like the dreamweaver site rembers my source control. However, the sourcecontrol menu has now disappeared (as it work getting rid of the menus.xml). Is there a way to bring that menu back?I am on build 22252 of the hosted software.
