My question is 2-part:

A) Is the scripting.dictionary object a feature of FrontPage 2000 Server
Extensions? That is, do the server extensions need to be installed in order
to use the scripting.dictionary object?

B) Does Windows 2003 Server support the scripting.dictionary object
natively? Or do I need to enable to special sub-feature of some kind within
IIS?  (IIS 6.)

Thanks!

The dictionary Object is part of the vbscript engine and comes with the scripting runtime library(SCRUN.DLL). Win 2003 has SCRUN.DLL by default and hence you can use the dictionary object.

Just to answer your queries:
A: No you DO NOT need frontpage server extensions (Never been a fan of that buggy thing!!)

B: Since SCRUN.DLL is installed by default when installing IIS 6.0, Win 2003 does support dictionary object.

You might have to configure IIS 6.0 to run asp pages. You can do so by opening the IIS console and select the website and choose properties. Click on configure and enable asp scripts.

If you are looking for an alternative to dictionary object, go through http://codelib.aspemporium.com/index.aspx?pid=138&cid=12

Cheers!!
