This issue is caused by Java caching being disabled on your workstation.

To resolve this issue follow these steps:

  • Go to the Windows Start Menu > Control Panel
  • Open the Java control panel applet
  • In the General tab click the Settings button
  • Ensure that the checkbox labeled Keep Temporary files on my computer is checked

After this is done, restart your web browser and try logging into the Director management console again - the issue should be resolved at this point.
