The solution consists of a combination of 2 parts:
1. The AllWebMenus Add-in
This already exists inside your AllWebMenus installation (v5.3.860 or above only - no need to download and install separately), and can be accessed through the following menu:
You can use the add-in to specify the site's domain you create a menu for, import/update the menu structure from your site and eventually compile the menu for use on your Drupal website.

This is the module that you need to install on your Drupal website.
Through the module you can choose what information of your site should be part of your menu (like pages, stories, etc.), with what menu hierarchy and what options.
The module provides two different options for the generation of the menu: the AllWebMenus application or the Superfish script.
1. Menu generation using the "AllWebMenus" option:
The module generates the Menu Structure Code to paste into the Add-in of your AllWebMenus installation. You can then further process your menu with the hundreds of options that the AllWebMenus desktop application offers and compile/upload it to your Drupal website.
Note that you are not restricted to the Drupal menu structure for your menu items. You can create menus with your own menu items regardless of the drupal menu structure (see "Static" or "Mixed" population method below).
The Drupal module supports 3 menu population methods:
- "Dynamic" population: The menu is populated with items dynamically (online), based on a Drupal menu. The AllWebMenus project is used to provide only the styling/behaviors of the menu; not its items.
- "Static" population: The menu is populated with items edited within AllWebMenus only. Any changes to your online website do not affect your menu items. So, AllWebMenus provides both the structure and the styling/behaviors of the menu.
- "Mixed" population: This is a mix of "Dynamic" and "Static". The menu is populated both with items edited within AllWebMenus and with items created online (through a Drupal menu).

2. Menu generation using the "Superfish" option:
The module generates all the necessary code for the menu generation - there is no need to use the AllWebMenus application. Once the content of the menu has been specified, the positioning, style and behavior of the menu are determined through managing the appropriate "Blocks" in the Drupal administration page.
