Help with FrontPage 98

I recently installed FrontPage 98.  When I try to create a new FrontPage web or open an existing one I receive an error message that says, "There is no server on port 80 at 'web'"  Any idea what this means or how to fix it?

You need to run the webserver that comes with FrontPage.  When you run the server this should resolve the problem.  An alternate plan of action would be to type in a path including drive to an empty folder and say yes when asked if you want to convert to FrontPage web format.

Hi...
maybe you should try this...
open Front Page Explorer (not Editor) and when it prompts you to create or open new Web choose Open new Web...
Then you choose the type of your new web, and below you enter the exact location... if you want that web to be created on your disk then you should enter C:\myweb and that will create the new web directory on your HD..
after that you only choose this web each time you are prompted to choose one...

other solution is to start Front Page Editor directly...

the problem you encountered is because you specified you want FP to create your web on the Net... and the message is there because you are off line and the program could not open your imaginary web...
simply change to C:\myweb where myweb could be just anything... and that's it.

I hope I helped...

That is not entirley correct sleepwalkie... in its default configuration an initial execution of the FP explorer the default web location is from the _local_ webserver.  Front Page comes with a web server that is installed by default... as I said... run this webserver or as I also said (and you reiterated) specify a location as a path.
