As I had posted earlier this month, I was foiled in my attempts to run FrontPage 2003 on my Windows 7 rig BECAUSE I did not want to install a ‘back version’ of Office, i.e., 2002, now that I had finally installed Office 2007. So I had started using Microsoft’s FREE (yes, FREE) SharePoint Designer 2007 which is based on the FrontPage 2003 code-base.
I had an email yesterday from a lady who was ‘successfully’ running FrontPage 2003 on Windows 7 — but FrontPage 2003 was refusing to recognize two of her (three) Web sites previously created with FP. She had already established that it was not a ‘FrontPage Extensions‘ issue — and all three of her FP Web sites were running on the same server.
It appears that she can access and update all three Web sites using FP’s FTP mode. FTP mode is OK, but doesn’t give you warm-and-fuzzy you can get with using FP’s ‘native mode’ — which does require Extensions to be installed at the server side.
So … this seems an annoying quirk. Anybody else experiencing anything similar? PLEASE share. Thank You.
