  • HPA III install problem


    I downloaded HPA3, and before installing it I read the readme file and it said you might want to change the name of the Welcome window file so you could revert back to it at a later time, so I changed the file index.html to index_original.html. Then I installed HPA3, and I was subsequently notified that index4.html already existed, and I was asked if I wanted to overwrite it. I clicked on Ok.

    Everything seemed to install correctly after that, but after playing around with some of the new tools, I realized that the menu for the tools that came with the book had disappeared, and I can't find it anywhere on the Welcome window or in the How To palette. I searched my Elements 2 folder for index4.html, and it looks like it's in two locations:

    \Photoshop Elements 2\Recipes\Hidden Power\hidden_power\index4.html


    \Photoshop Elements 2\HTMLPalettes\Recipes\index4.html

    and it is in fact the menu for my old tools. What should I do? My operating system is Win98.

    Update: If I close Elements and relaunch it, then I am presented with the menu for the tools in the book, and under the "Other" tab I see:

    Added tools
    "Actions" (a link)

    When I click on Actions, I am taken to a new menu for the new tools. But, how do I get back to the menu for the tools from the book?

    To get back to the book tools, click the Hidden Power banner.

      Need help, went thru the stuffing unstuffing issues with no luck, so had my PSE instructor send me a workable/installable file. Then we were able to get
      HPA3.sea installed on my Mac.

      Using HPA3 with book tools?
      by dpnew

      I just installed the HPA3 tools, and I can't figure out how to get from the free tools to the tools that only come with the book. How do you find the menu for the book tools?

      I've completely disabled virus protection, rebooted, and verified it's off.
      I've tried installing off of my c: drive. No change.

      I accept the license agreement and get a screen which lists 3 options: Acrobat Reader, Chapter Files, Power Tools.

      I click on Power Tools...
