CSB 5 DOES work on Vista and XP. Many people use it on both. I use it on XP and I personally know others on Vista, successfully publishing for several months on Vista. A friend of mine on Vista has 14 subdirectory files for his site and all function normally.
and now it's not only greyed out but there is no publishing.
Could you take a screen print and post it?
1) Did you put in your serial number to unlock the program? If you do not have the serial number in tje program, CSB WILL stop working, will stop publishing after the 30 day trial period! If you haven't put in your serial number, do it under the HELP menu (register). Other than that trial period, CSB has no "end date" built in.
2) If you have your serial number in the program and still can not publish, then it sounds like your copy of CSB 5 has been damaged in some way.
Have you recently done any cleaning on your computer? How about registry cleaners or getting rid of unused files?
Have you recently added or removed any programs, updated your computer, made ANY changes on the computer?
It's possible that something legitimately or inappropriately has removed one or more of the necessary dll files used by CSB 5. Download a fresh copy of CSB 5 and reinstall it.
And I am confused a bit by your post. BOTH machines have CSB 5 on them, and BOTH have grayed out publishing? Go to your HELP ABOUT in both computers and see if you have registered both.
I know you have used CSB for a LONG time. Did you upgrade to CSB 5 and get the serial number when it was for sale by GlobalSCAPE? Or did you just decide to go to version 5 when you went to Vista?
(I expect that you got the CSB 5 from GlobalSCAPE not from a warez website that is selling a CRACKED version of the program)
If you would like someone to test your tlx design file, I would be willing to do that but I expect your tlx design file is fine, your CSB program is the issue.
