How to install an extension

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to install our product on your computer. Although steps 1 to 7 are explained for Creative MovieFX, a Flash component, they are exactly the same for a Dreamweaver extension like Creative DW Tabbed Menu; the final step will explain how to locate the extension in Dreamweaver.

1. Extract the ".zip" archive in the folder of your choice.

2. Open the Adobe Extension Manager (it comes automatically with one of the Adobe – ex-Macromedia – products).

3. Be careful to choose from the list on the top, the version of Flash/Dreamweaver on which you want the extension installed to.

4. Click on the top-left button to install a new extension (the same thing happens if you press CTRL+O or click File>Install Extension).
