I've tried to run it with the CD and get the same error. What's up? I didn't know anything about the DLL.

Frontpage sucks. I have 2000 installed on my system and it refuses to acknowledge that I prefer to edit html with notepad. Every time I so much as glance sideways at Frontpage, it rewrites my file associations...

One possibility is that another program, such as an anti-virus program, use a file named MFC42.DLL, but it is a different version.

Another possibility is from searching Microsoft's user support web site.

Microsoft provides instructions which may or may not correct this error message at the following URL:
