Hi My old computer (Windows 7) has run DW 8 ( I know quite old) very well for a number of years but the machine is very old. Have recently bought a new computer (Windows 10) and have installed DW 8 successfully and used site definition on new computer to connect with server successfully. Have transferred all DW local site to new computer in C:\ inetpub\wwwroot. seems to work but... The files now on the new computer are all READ only. I change the READ ONLY  to READ in the file preferences but when I reload it has remained. Any ideas? Many thanks in anticipation. Kevin

Hi It turned out that it was a permissions problem with some folders and files on the new computer. Thanks for your help. Kevin

Use your operating system's File Explorer.

Right click on site folder.

Select Properties. 

Untick the box by Read Only.

Hi Thanks for your quick reply. I have done what you have said many times already but that does not solve the problem. The next time you look at the file, the READ ONLY is back again. It almost seems that the problem may be the parent folders permissions ... wwwroot. inetpub etc. but I don't know. Kevin

When you open a file, what if any errors are you seeing in DW?

Hi I have moved the files again to the new computer and have found that ALL the files are READ ONLY when I open them. When I open any WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT or ACCESS file, it says to save the file under a different name. I have tried changing permissions for inetpub, wwwroot etc. on the new computer but they always revert back to READ ONLY. Any ideas?

That's a Windows permission issue. 

Do a Google search for Windows 10 Take Ownership.
