    Default WinME & FrontPage2000

    I&#039;m not feeling very confident about installing PWS on my primary machine (winME). Microsoft says "Microsoft FrontPage 2000 can use disked-based Webs in Window Me as an alternative." Can anyone tell this newbe where I can find info about how to do this, I feel better about it as I already have front page on the machine.<BR>Thanks! <BR>

    I just don&#039;t want to give windows any other reason to crash, that has happened to some people using this message board, and Dell recommends against downloading PWS onto ME also. If there is a way to use FrontPage 2000, like microsoft suggests, I&#039;d be happy to use that.

    i recieved this response with a similar query for Win ME ?<BR>i&#039;ve followed the instructions and it works.<BR>it&#039;s a minor miracle !!<BR>let me know how it goes...<BR>-----------------------------------------------------------------<BR>RE: Downloading Personal Web Server to Windows ME<BR>Bill James - 3/24/2001 2:21:00 PM<BR><BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR> SOLUTION <BR>______________________________________________ ___________________ <BR>1) Download the newest version of PWS from <BR> <BR> Yes, this is the NT 4.0 Option Pack, but it includes the version of PWS for <BR> Win95 which can be used on WinMe with the following tweaks. After <BR> downloading Download.exe, run it and select the option to download PWS for <BR> Win95. <BR><BR>2) See <BR> Download the patch and implement per the instruction in this KB article. <BR><BR>3) Important! Do a Custom install of PWS, installing only the Transaction <BR> Server component. To do this, uncheck all the options, then check <BR> Transaction Server - it will add checks to the other components needed for <BR> it, but not the Personal Web Server option. <BR><BR>4) After Setup completes and a reboot, re-run Setup and add PWS. Reboot after <BR> Setup completes. <BR><BR>5) PWS should now work. Easiest way to implement using it for local copies of <BR> your web pages is to copy the contents of the entire local folder structure <BR> of your web site to C:Inetpubwwwroot (or the folder you selected during <BR> PWS setup). To clarify, if the local copy of your web site is in <BR> D:MyWebSite, with the default start page and all sub-folders located <BR> there, you copy all the files and sub-folders, but not the D:MyWebSite <BR> folder itself. <BR><BR>6) If you are using ASP and your start page is default.asp, allow your file to <BR> overwrite the default.asp file already in C:Inetpubwwwroot. If you are <BR> using index.htm or some other start page, you need to rename the PWS <BR> default.asp file so it is not the default page for the local site. <BR><BR>7) In your web browser address bar, type... <BR><BR> localhost <BR><BR> bring up your start page. <BR><BR>Other installation issues I encountered: <BR><BR>1) PWS Setup replaced regsvr32.exe with an old version. Extract regsvr32.exe <BR> from the WinMe Setup files to C:WindowsSystem to replace the old version <BR> that PWS installed there. <BR><BR>2) My linked .js files would not work at first because they were in a folder <BR> called "Scripts", but PWS comes pre-configured with a Virtual Directory by <BR> that same name. So, references to that folder were actually going to the <BR> Virtual Folder, and the requested .js file did not exist there. <BR> Solution: Open the Advanced Options page of PWS manager and remove or rename <BR> the "Scripts" Virtual Directory. <BR><BR>Bill James <BR>Visit my VBScript Page: <BR>Revised 29/Oct/2000 20:54
