Office 2003 stops FrontPage 2000 uploading...?
Posted on 2003-11-21
I have been using FrontPage 2000 for months to maintain my web site without problems. The web site is hosted by a company that I upload to, it's not on my local machine. A week ago I installed Office Professional 2003 so I now have Word, Excel and PowerPoint 2003 but still Frontpage 2000 on an XP Prof machine.
Since then when I try and upload changes to my web site the program goes through the routine where it compares pages on the server and then my PC. It should then upload new files and files that have changed. However it just sits there not uploading anything and then the following error appears: -
"The Server sent a response which FrontPage could not parse. If you are trying to connect to a FrontPage server, check with the server's administrator to make sure FrontPage extensions are installed properly".
My web host assures me they have made no changes to my account and FP extensions are still installed as normal. They recommend uninstalling FrontPage and then re-installing it.
Is this a good idea? Is this a known problem? Is there anyhting esle I should try?
