I have exactly the same problem. Where is the "Add User" button described in all the help references? i've set up many test users before, just can't figure out how I did it!!!?? (Using WinXP, Contribute 3 and 4)
Anyone know what we're talking about?
More... at first I didn't see the posts on this topic in the general discussion forum, but looking again, there are a number.
(Search on "Contribute 3 add user" for one of the posts. Others posts nearby.)
It seems that one must send a connection key in order to add users in Contribute 3. A change, apparently, from v2. The Add User button only appears if you are using publishing server... or so it seems from the posts.

The add user button is enabled in case you have adminstered the site with
To add other users without CPS , you can adminster the site and then send
out connection keys to the user with specific roles assigned.
Do this by:
Edit-> Administer Websites -> SITENAME
In adminstration dialog that follows, do :
Select either Admistrator, Publisher .... role and click on Send Connection
Complete the process and send the key accross to the user.
Hope this helped.
