Problem using FP97 with WebSite Pro

I have been using MS FrontPage97 beta for the last 2 weeks with WebSite Pro 1.1g without any problems.

So I bought the full version of FP97. The problem starts here. I keep getting an HTTP Error 500 when I press List Webs Button from the Open FrontPage Web Window.

My WebServer is working fine. Everything is OK when I do the TCP/IP test. I am not accessing the Web Site through the Internet. This is an Intranet Web Server and I am not using any proxie.

The FP Server Extensions seems to be installed OK. I am running WebSite Pro on a Win95 platform.

So far I'm back to NotePad. Please help.

There is no "standard" method for Web Authoring tools to keep track of the structure of a site - all the data that pertains to your site's layout is stored in a software-specific fashion, which may be ignored or, worse, misunderstood (even garbled) by other authoring programs.

And so, it sounds like you've got a conflict between FP and WebSite - while WebSite isn't an authoring tool, it has its own utlity, "Webview," that keeps track of the structure of information on your site, which may come in conflict with Frontpage's utility for doing the same.

The "fix" is to use one or the other, but not both, to track the structure of your Web.  (I don't know of a way to "turn off" WebView, so you may have to ditch FrontPage in favor of a different page-editing utility.)

If the beta worked but the final version doesn't, that's probably because the developers tweaked something that was causing an error, and the "fix" is causing an error of a different kind - that's probably a technique hackers learn in order to become Microsoft Certified (g).
