Import all sites from DW MX 2003 into MX 2004 on Mac at once

I just installed DW MX 2004 on my Mac and would like to import my sites, about 15 of them, from DW MX 2003.

I am sure there is probably an XML doc somewhere that has all this info but I can’t remember where it is.

You can do a .STE export from 2003 and import to 2004 but it only does one site at a time.

Which Mac OS do you run?
Did you back up your files before upgrading to mx 2004?

The reason I ask is that this problem has been reported to Macromedia a couple of times, but they have yet to find a solution for this. In the mean time they suugest:
'Sites can be exported and imported in both Dreamweaver MX and Dreamweaver MX 2004 from the Import and Export options under the Site menu. From the Site menu, select Manage Sites to access the Import and Export options.'

Actually what Macromedia does, is recommend this programme until they can fix their own mess :-)

I am running OS X 10.2.8, yes all everything is backed up.

DW Exporter is just for Windows. (I actually had no problem with the same transition in Windows. Win DW MX 2004 found all my 2003 sites as well as passwords etc...)

As I said the export > from 2003 /  import > into 2004 works fine on my Mac but only one site at a time as far as I can tell and I have about 15.

I guess I can do it this way but I was hoping for a better solution. There has got to be an XML file somewhere with all this data but a search turned up nothing.

Hmm.. Until macromedia has a fix for this, I don't think there's very much else you can do. What they say is that they're unable to reproduce the error, so they won't know how to fix it.
