Dreamweaver CS3 keeps asking me to define a site!

This is driving me nuts!  I have created my site, set the apropriate settings and all connections to my remote server work fine.  However when I try to create dynamic data Dreamweaver keeps prompting:

"The site you defined does not contain your current file. Please save this file to your new local site or define a new site that contains this file".

I've done this, but it keeps bugging me to create a new site. I save the file the appropriate local directory -- to no avail. Help! Thanks!

Dreamweaver writes site data to the registry, so the user running DW needs to have enough permissions to do that.  Are you running XP or Vista and how is the user account configured?

Hello:  I'm running Vista (agggh!)  I must have sufficient permissions as this wasn't a problem before.
Regards!

You were able to use dynamic data before but not now?  Have you checked the remote and testing server settings to be sure they are correct?
