Installing the PopMenu Magic Extension

Before getting started with the User Guide tutorials, you'll need to install the PVII Pop Menu Magic extension into Dreamweaver. The extension installation file, P7_PMM_102.mxp, is located in your P7_PMM archive folder. The .mxp file extension is used for all Dreamweaver extensions. Installing the extension requires using the Macromedia Extension Manager, a program installed with Dreamweaver.

Open the Extension Manager

-In Dreamweaver, choose Commands > Manage Extensions. The Macromedia Extension Manager interface will open.

The Macromedia Extension Manager interface

There are rare occasions when the Manage Extensions item in the Dreamweaver menu is unavailable (grayed out). If this is the case, navigate to the extension file (P7_PMM_102.mxp) using Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. Double-click the extension file to launch Extension Manager.
