I am using Contribute cs4 v5.0 (Windows) and every now and then I have to re-enter the settings for my websites.
Not a problem with connection but all existing connections are occasionally missing when I go to the "Home" screen. This has happenned a number of times in the last few weeks and is very frustrating as I use the program to edit about 10 domains and re-entering the all of the details is a bit of a pain.
After I re-enter the settings I can connect fine and do not have problems when re-connected. The main issue is that for some reason Contribute seems to forget existing connections randomly?
Is there a setting/option somewhere I have missed? I have been using contribute for about 2 years and not experienced anything like this before.
Do you mean the connection is removed automatically from Contribute? Then follow the below mentioned steps.
Please try once clearing the Contribute preferences.
For Win, Contribute CS4
1) Quit Contribute.
2) From Command prompt run the below two commands to remove the preferences
a) reg delete "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Contribute 5" /f
b) RD /S /Q "%Userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Contribute CS4"
Note: This will remove all the connection in the Contribute and this like the fresh installation of Contribute.
If you mean the connect exists and gets only disconnected then please refer to the blog post, http://blogs.adobe.com/contribute/2011/06/how-to-improve-contribute-startup-time.html
