Frontpage 97 editor keeps stopping IIS 3.0

Can anyone tell me why Frontpage 97 will suddenly decide to close down all services running on IIS 3.0 when it tries to save an html file to a current open web?  It then obviously generates an error message because it can no longer connect to Port 80 on the server.  Meanwhile, either Dr Watson on NT says it's generating an error message, but no log entry appears, or I get the following error message on the NT server:

The instruction at "0x77f64765" referenced memory at "0x1226168b".  The memory couldn't be "written".


All ideas greatly appreciated.

Check the permissions.  DO you have full access to the files/directory you are trying to write to.  Also check to make sure that the "system" user has write acces to those files.  Is this a new problem or has it been hapening the entire time using front page 97

I've checked the permissions and they're all full access for both myself as author and system to the relevant files being edited.  It's a problem that I've experienced since I started using Frontpage 97, which admittedly is only around 1 month as I wanted to become familiar with it as a product and it isn't my usual web editing tool.  However, this problem didn't occur with Frontpage version 1.0 to my recollection, and it has also coincided with my switching from a Dell P166MHz 16MB RAM 2GB EIDE machine running Windows 95 to a 233MHz 64MB RAM 4GB SCSI machine running Windows NT 4.0 workstation.

I also use Front Page 97 and was careful to select a server master who was fully set up to handle this program and to assist me in the event that problems occurred. We had some problems because Win 95 changed all of my file names to begin with upper case letters, when his Unix server really wanted them in lower case. I also found some problems with the program itself because it automatically puts in Meta tags which are older than the latest Consortium regulations and some of my pages came over with a "transfer interruption" message. I could not delete the Meta tags as per the advice of the Consortium rept. and explained my problems to Microsoft. I have not used the updated program, Front Page 98, but Microsoft said they would address the problem in the update. So, my advice is: (1) Ask your server master to give you more assistance or investigate servers which are set up for Front Page. (2)Consider upgrading to Front Page 98, which does contain the latest Consortium Meta tags.

Personally, I would be expecting more assistance from my servermaster. If the server is not set up for Front Page, and the servermaster is not aware of how to overcome that problem, the environment may be working against you.
