Chapter 10. Moving on Down the Road: Int... > Multiusers Equals Multiple Files

Multiusers Equals Multiple Files

The support for multiuser configurations is great, but it can be a nightmare for extension developers as they are writing and testing their extensions. Dreamweaver checks the user’s Configuration folder first for files and then looks in its own Configuration folder.[*]. The user’s files take precedence over those in the main Dreamweaver MX 2004 Configuration folder. First, I advise setting up your operating system to always show hidden files. (Check your operating system’s help files for more information about showing hidden files and using its search interface.) Second, I suggest that you use your operating system’s Search to find configuration files (such as menus.xml). If the results show that there is a file in the user’s configuration and one in the Dreamweaver MX 2004 configuration, you’ll know that you may need to edit one or both files.

[*] Disclaimer: I’ve found only one instance where the program configuration overrides the user’s configuration, but there may be others
