find & rename all mfc42.dll's *.old, reboot (ignoring any error msgs), reinstall (not repair) fp2k from add\remove cpl
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...

Do you have Internet Exp. 5.0 installed?
If you don't FP y2k won't install. IE 5 is on Disk one...use explore to find IE 5 on disk one. Might not be your problem, cuz u had it running. Just a thought.

Good luck.
