Installing Personal Web Server on Windows 2000

I have just installed Windows 2000 and Visual Interdev 6.  I then tried to install the Personal Web Server in order to set up Web projects in Visual Interdev.  This has been unsuccessfull.  Although Interdev gives me the opportunity to start new web projects no server is available to start the project.
All the software installations have run with no errors setting up Visual Interdev Server, Frontpage server file extensions, MS Data Access and so on.  The IIS Service and Personal Web Server (PWS) are available in Admin tools.  If I go into PWS them the home page isn't available.  It states the default document is off.  If I go to advanced view then it shows default document enabled.  Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong?

I have no other errors in setting up Windows 2000 with all the latest Microsoft developer applications.  All the software I'm loading is from the Microsoft Direct Access Option Pack I bought recently.

Funny,

I was in the exact same boat as you last month, and the solution is really quite simple.

If you have Office 2000 Professional or Premium (with FrontPage 2000), or if you have a copy of FrontPage 2000 installed on the server (where your IIS 5 resides), add the 2 sub-components of FrontPage:
-Server Extensions Resource Kit
-Server Extensions Admin Form

When you install this it will stop and ask you something like: 'Are you sure you want to install this - other people will be able to modify your webserver documents' (or something similar).

Say 'Yes' (of course), and everything should work properly!

If you already have FrontPage installed, know that FrontPage does not install these components by default - you will have to select them manually.

Go here to download if you do not have FrontPage 2000:

Cheers!
