DW CS5 losing FTP login

I've systematically searched the Adobe Forums and done every one of the fixes for this, to no avail.

I have to keep re-entering my FTP login info every time I restart DW CS5. To say it's irritating is like saying decapitation stings a little.

Is there a definitive fix for this bug?

Ack.  The Windows registry is located on each machine.  The issue may be that your IT Admin has got you running with restricted privileges (as s/he should) but DW needs the user to be Administrator in order to work properly.

Check with him/her and see what's up?

Hi sulky,

Dreamweaver stores the FTP info in the registry, so whatever user account is creating site definitions needs to be able to change the registry.  If you have any security software blocking it or if the permissions are not sufficient, this crops up.

Check your anti-virus?

Hmm - I'm a designer, not a developer, but that sounds a lot like a possible case of over-zealous IT guy (again) here in the office.

Could you give me a hint where the registry is located or how to tell what user account is creating site definitions?
