Hi codakid,
Repair TCP/IP and Winsock errors


Use this piece of software to reset your TCP and winsock settings.
http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

You can determine if you have a winsock problem by doing the following.

Put in the windows XP CD and navigate to the support >Tools folder.
Double click setup and select full install.
Click Start >run >cmd {enter}
Type       netdiag /test:winsock /v    {enter}

To reset the winsock registry entries

Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
Exit Regedit and reboot.

To install TCP/IP over itself (to do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf  there IS one on the Windows XP CD and MAY be one on your hard drive)

Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
Right click the connection and select Properties.
Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk
Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf  (see above)
Select TCP/IP click OK
Reboot

Check this .Temporarily disable your firewall

Also go to control panel ---> network connections --> right-click and go to properties of the connection you are using
in the listing that comes up , check " file and printer sharing for microsoft networks"

and press OK..

Now go to dreamweaver and check if you are able to download the files

have you tried a reinstall of DW yet..??   I have to believe that since everything else is working, that the problem lies there..

Codakid,

Does dreamweaver without being used for creating sites , work fine ? in other words, can you do normal work on that  ?

Doing a windows update could update only the required files to be updated. I am not sure if you are not having any other problems atall when you say "everything else is working fine".

Fatal,

I would guess your shortform DW represents Dreamweaver.. Looks like he has tried different versions of the same ( Acc to original question)

i have reinstalled two different versions of dreamweaver many times now

gone through all the procedures listed above in you answers

reinstalled tcp/ip protocols a few times

and reinstalled xp (update)

have installed service pack 2 for xp

i can get on the net fine, i can see the rest of my network fine

i can create pages in dreamweaver if i drop a page into the main window but cannot set up new sites or edit root folders,remote folders, or change testing servers or settings  of existing sites

im sure its not tcp/ip settings that are wrong now, as i wouldnt be able to see the net or network,  

it must be a configuration of dreamweaver within the registry me thinks,
but finding all references to dreamweaver in the registry could take me days...

not sure what to do , am at a loss

any more suggestions??????

thanks for the feedback brainy people

Ahh..  the steps I would take exactly..!!!   I just have to think that it is the DW install that is causing the issue...

i too have been using dreamweaver for a number of years since version 3..

i have never had any problems with it apart from a bug in the first mx where it didnt like database interaction...

i used the regseek prog and cleaned out all dreamweaver entries reinstalled dreamweaver and everythinng is now working fine again...

yippeee...

goes to show a tidy pc is a happy pc...

i think the confusion lied in te error message dreamweaver gave about tcp/ip not installed properly ...sent me down the wrong track....

although i kind of worked the solution out myself
i stilll need to give the points away...

so i guess they go to the person who supplied the tool regseek

well done pete  400 points for you

thanks guys

im a happy codakid again..
