HELP - You can't edit this page now because (myself) iscurrently editing it. - Macromedia Contribute Connection Administrtion

Here is my problem - hopefully someone else has encountered this. I've setup DW to "Enable Contribute" - I've created a user group - I've sent the connection key - my users can connect - but when the go to edit a page they get this: "You can't edit this page now because (myself) is currently editing it. Please contact (myself)..." My users get this - and when I use contribute to make changes I even get this message. What is this? A problem with Contribute - or me?? rrrrrr. (thank you for any help or suggestions!!)...

    It sounds like the files are checked out in DW. This will cause the message to
    appear in Contribute. Check your local files in DW to see if they are checked
    out -- If so checking them back in should solve this.

    I am having the same problem! What does DW stand for? Where do I make these
    changes? I originally set up my website on a previous computer under a trial
    version, and now I do not have access to the old computer. I downloaded a new
    version today, and logged on and it won't let me edit it? Any help would be
    appreciated.

    Never mind, I figured it out! A previous version had a different email address set up (under create connection) - as soon as I changed it I was able to edit the pages. Yeah!

    DW = Dreamweaver

    To checkin/checkout files: open DW and choose files (F8). Connect to the site
    you want to edit. In the Local View window choose your file(s) and then click
    the checkin or checkout button (or right click and make your selection). If
    you have a file checked out in DW you won't be able to edit the file in
    Contribute (you will also get an alert in DW if you try to checkout a file
    being edited by someone in Contribute).
