Just moved CS6 to new PC. Using CSS Menu Maker extension in several active web sites and need to get it installed again.

 

CS6 Extension Manager will not load the previously-installed ZXP file because signature is said to be invalid.

ZXP Installer says it isn't compatible with my installed applications.

Copying over the PlugIns folder from my old PC had no visible effect.

 

The CSS Menu Maker web site is still there, but it look as if it is a dormant company so no help from there.

 

Grateful for advice on how to get past this licence block, or any other way to get it installed again.

I watched their 'how to do it' video.

Sadly DMXzone Extension Manager takes absolutely no notice of the .ZXP file either by selecting it from the file dialogue within the program or by draging and dropping.

I've also failed with Aanastasiy's installer, which says I don't have the application installed. I upgraded to CS6 in 2012 which means that CS6 was in use when I installed CSS Menu Maker originally.

 

I have the ZXP file and also the unzipped elements of the add-in.

 

What can I do to break this impasse?

Hi,

 

Where did you get the extension from? Is it a commercial or free extension? Could do with having a look at it....

It's an old commercial product I purchsed in 2013 and installed then into CS6.

 

Their web site is still there, but no contact available. Looks like it is no longer supported.

 

The original download link still works, though http://cssmenumaker.com/dreamweaver-download

 

After using Anastasiy's Extension Manager to try to install the ZXP, it did nothing visible. However, next time I tried it told me it was already installed and to uninstall it. However, it didn't show in their (empty) list of installed extensions, in that program, nor anywhere else, so I suspect an issue with that installer assuming success.

CS6 is 8+ years out of date and no longer supported.  CS Menu maker is dead.  Why are you clinging to outdated web authoring tools? 

Find modern replacements. The built-in navigation in Bootstrap is responsive, touch screen-friendly and there's nothing to install. 

 

Copy & paste this code into a new, blank document.  Save and preview in browsers.  On small width devices, the navbar collapses into a hamburger menu.
