Hi Sunil,

The following is from

The Microsoft? FrontPage? MMC snap-in has a complete help system providing FrontPage server extensions overviews and descriptions of server extensions administrative techniques. This help file is installed by default at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\40\bin\nnnn\Fpmmc.chm, where nnnn is a numerical name based on the language in which you installed the FrontPage Server Extensions. For example, in a U.S. English installation, the path is C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\40\bin\1033\Fpmmc.chm. Documentation of the server extensions is also available at

Hope this helps,

missy, in IIS4 one could set the FrontPage property of a IISWebServer to ture, but that unfortunately doesn't work anymore. In my environment, I use the FPSRVADM.EXE (In the C:\Program Files\COmmon Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\40\ directory, or similar). It allows to specify command-line arguments to install, update etc. frontpage extensions on virtual servers. Thus it can be used for automation.
