Need help with Dreamweaver - can't find Insert, ASP.net Objects

I am new to Dreamweaver... I am trying to follow some tutorials and they say to use Insert, ASP.net Objects but I don't see that in my Insert menu.  What am I doing wrong?  Here's the step in the tutorial:

Create a login form with 2 asp:textboxes and 1 asp:button. Use the asp.net web server controls from Insert > ASP.NET Objects. Make sure the controls are within the form tag (dmx should do this by default.)

I am working with an ASP.net page (.aspx).

I am using Dreamweaver CS4.

Hi dougshepard,

Are those tutorials specific to CS4?  Adobe changed a lot of menus and other dialogs in CS4 and earlier tutorials may not work.

No, the tutorials are for CS3 and earlier versions, but I figured they would work...

But, I have since discovered that CS4 dropped support for ASP.net.  And earlier versions only supported ASP.net 1.1 (not 2.0)...

I am in the process of learning ASP.net in depth and using Visual Web Developer 2005.

Well, sort of.  You can still use CS4 for ASP.NET but there are no included behaviors.  If you download extensions from the Exchange that are specific to ASP.NET, they can be used but as a whole it appears Adobe is conceeding the arena to MS for these languages.  PHP and ColdFusion are still supported in full.
