When ever I launch DOTA2 I have to reset the region, however I didn't have to do this on my laptop?

Any ideas what maybe causing this?

(I don't use any autoexec options)

Are you launching Steam as an administrator? I'm not sure if this setting is saved locally or on the cloud. Also is your Steam profile based in the proper location as well? – Sorean Jan 20 '12 at 18:04
Nope standard launch – Simon Jan 20 '12 at 18:25
As DOTA2 is still in closed beta you should probably get in touch with Valve to get a solution or file this as a bug. That's why beta tests are done. – Koraktor Jan 21 '12 at 20:40
I dropped them an Email will see where it goes. – Simon Jan 24 '12 at 23:14
is this problem still occurring? – Wandang Mar 5 '12 at 23:51

Yeah, same thing happened to me, but I wouldn't think much of it, as it's in closed beta still and isn't perfect yet. I have notified Valve, and they will probably get on that soon, because closed beta is just that- people playing the game, detecting problems, and reporting then to the devs to fix. All in all, there's no fix that us users can implement, but Valve is good about stuff like that, so keep up with their response. (if any)

True but if you read last few patch notes they claimed to have made efforts to change the save region feature. But good to know I'm not alone on this issue. – Simon Mar 14 '12 at 11:50
Yes, I do agree that it is strange that this problem still occurred when Valve says they addressed it, but I think that it may just be that the problem was induced by something else for us, something that Valve may not either have found, or just hasn't addressed. – Portali5t Mar 14 '12 at 21:33
I can't see any way of fixing this at this current state. So I agree with your answer :). – Simon Mar 19 '12 at 13:09
