Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Issue Persisting - Any Suggestions?

    I followed Dan's advice (03-24 8:41am) and the issue is still taking place.

    Selwyn suggested that the issue is likely caused by my computer not having installed the dhtmledit.msi (I am using Vista, which doesn't install these files).

    As per Selwyn's advice I turned off User Account Controls in Vista and then re-installed version 9
    (free trial version).

    This time the dhtml editing component install took place during the version 9 install. As a result, now I have the dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll files in c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\dhtmled.

    Unfortunately, the issue is still taking place.

    My understanding is that the dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll files are registered when the dhtmled.msi is installed. In case this isn't the case I tried registering these files - but with no success. Got the following error message: "the module "dhtmled.ocx" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that "dhtmled.ocx" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

    If the dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll files don't need to be registered I am not sure what to do it would appear that everything is in order.

    If these files do need to be registered then I am not sure why they are not registering (cd c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\dhtmled
    ...regsvr32 dhtmled.ocx)

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again for your help.

      Update - Execute Page Issue

      I'm providing an update in case anyone else is experiencing this issue.

      I spoke with Microsoft today and confirmed the following:
      > - The dhtml editor component is installed correctly on my Windows Vista
      > machine (installed when installing v9 with Vista's UAC off)
      > -> The dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll files are registered when the dhtml
      > editor component is installed
      > -> The dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll files are in the correct location:
      > c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\dhtmled
      > Unfortunately, with the dhtml editor component installed correctly, my .a5w pages still do not display properly when "Execute Page" is used to run them - get a "Failed to Connect" message when using FireFox and an "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page."

        Re: Error with page loading

        I bought a new laptop the other day. I installed the trial version (build 3264), got the avtivation key transferred to this machine and started working on my existing database from an external drive.

        At first I got the local host problem. Thanks to this message board I changed to That helped.
        By the way: I checked the host file, it has the right entries, so I don't know what the problem really is... But, who cares, it works now :-)

        Secondly, I cannot see the Live Preview, same as discussed here.
        I don't know why I should uninstall my newly installed full version of A5,and re-install it again in another folder. Since there are no old settings anywhere on the laptop (it's new), I don't see what that would add to the solution.

        Since this problem was noted about a month ago, is there a real solution available by now?
