IIS sees FP'02 server extensions but FP'02 says they aren't there......

I'm trying to setup a development environment for Win2k/IIS and Frontpage 2002. My goal is to test a new web site with interactive database applications.  (This same development box works well with SQL server, WebMatrix and .net - Pages are diplayed properly when using WebMatrix.  ASPX pages and functions run properly)...Frontpage is a different story. DotNet is a bit more complicated and time consuming for my prototype - Frontpage can do the job if I can get it up and running in a development envirnoment.  I can create and view pages as a disk-based web but I obviously can't interact with email or databases.... I can't create the initial Frontpage web based site  - www.mysite.com  - because I get an error stating that the FP'02 server  extensions aren't there.  IIS says the extensions are installed.

When I check Settings under Properties within IIS I am redirected to the following web page with a "page cannot be displayed" error message:

http://192.168.0.4/_sharepoint/fpadmdll.dll?page=genset.htm&port=/LM/W3SVC/1

Are my extensions there or not?  The files do not seem to be the correct size - no matter how many times I download the extensions.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

It is a good practice to completely uninstall the extensions before reinstalling them.

Stop the services
Uninstall server extensions  (important)
Reinstall server extensions

Good advice - thanks - but it isn't working quite so nicely.  I've stopped IIS uninstalled the extensions, reinstalled the extensions - still the wrong size files.  When I proceed with the installation I get the following message.  Are these two separate problems?



C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\50\bin>owsa
dm.exe -o install -p 80 -u Administrator -sp publish

Definetely a rights issue.  Did you remove Everyone from the folders you are installing the extensions on?  Also make sure the Administrator has full rights to all of the folders and the IUSER_SERVERNAME has read access to the folders you want the Public to see.  Change these and then reinstall Extensions.
