    Hey guys,
    Ok, so first the problem (it is on our school network, and im currently helping the admins with something:
    There are 1500+ users on the school network, and 800 of them are required to create an "E-portfolio" in dreamweaver, for our IT course.
    When a user configures dreamweaver it creates a configuration file in the users profile "c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX\Configuration" however, with everyone having a roaming profile (and static profiles would be out of the question) when users log on, it has to drag a 20meg file from the server to the root directory of the computer the user has logged on to. Now although 20meg isn't very big, when 150 users are all login on at the same time, it can take ages to log on.​
    Now our original idea was to just get rid of this configuration file, and see what it affected - however it gets rid of all defined sites, and also how you configure your window in dreamweaver - so this is out of the question.

    So my question is - "Is there anyway the we can reduce the file size, or have a "shared" configuration file, so that it just saves the defined sites on the user profiles?"

    Kind Regards
    Anthony

    EDIT: Also, it was debatable about which forum to put this in, but thought the networking one was more relevant.
