Cannot configure or open aspx code pages in Dreamweaver MX (ver7)

This is my second attempt to get help and slove this problem. I apparently do not know how to properly configure and set Dreamweaver up to fully ope an .aspx page. All I get is this code:
"<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Content.master" Title="Untitled Page" %>

<%@ Register Src="~/CM/ucPage.ascx" TagName="ucPage" TagPrefix="uc1" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
    <uc1:ucPage ID="UcPage1" runat="server" PageID="435" />

....rather than the complete page xhtml code that I can edit. The Design view page is just blank.

I realize that their is some way that I have to configure Dreamweaver to process these pages but I cannot find out how to actually do it.

    actually its not you who have the problem configuring Dreamweaver to run masterpages
    this is one of Dreamweaver's limitations, it exists in Dreamweaver 7 and Dreamweaver 8
    both versions were released before 2.0 which introduced masterpages therefor they will not understand the .master extension

    Hope this helps

    Totally behind sammy1971 on this one.  DW had poor support for ASP.NET 1, and has zero support for .NET 2.  It was the reason I had to move away and start using Microsoft's free Visual Web Developer, which is designed solely around the .NET framework...

    I've discovered that sammy197's info seems to be correct. Even Adobes latest Dreamweaver has issues with ASP, ASPX.
