Default Can't create new site in DW8 on Win7

I've moved from XP to Win7 on a new computer and reinstalled DW8. Installation went OK, no errors. I was able to create two sites in Manage Sites, but now have a problem. When I try and create a new site - Manage Sites>New - and connect with the site home and image folder on my disk, DW displays the path to the folder above the home folder on the disk. I tried hand-typing the correct path but same result. When I click OK on the Manage Sites window I get a warning message that says "The new site is inside an existing folder ....". DW won't allow any new sites to be created in the expected way. I tried reinstalling but same result. Have I caused this problem with an unnoticed key combination or some other mistake? Has anyone seen this behavior with DW8 on Win7?

It's a bug in Dreamweaver and certain versions of Windows (more info: http://dwcourse.com/dreamweaver/wind...ot-folder.php). Odds are it's affect one or more of your sites. So go back and make sure the local root folder is set correctly for all of them.
If my answer helped, check out DWcourse.com for Dreamweaver tips and tutorials.

I find that doing a CR after manually typing either the correct path to the folders makes DW8 correctly accept the path entered. After getting pointed to several other threads on this topic I see its a bug know from 2004 at least and a real puzzle that Adobe/MM haven't fixed it.
