I have frontpage server extensions working on my laptop with win xp and iis5. i have frontpage 2002
when i create a new web in frontpage using one of the templates (e.g. personal) then it works fine, i can publish the web and enter information in the feedback form and it processes correctly. this indicates that the server extensions are setup correctly and are working.
however, i am working on a site that i have copied from another web server. i basically copied the entire folder and pasted it into my wwwroot folder. the site/folder name is mySite. so i have d:\inetpub\wwwroot\mySite\
i then added the virtual directory in iis to point to this folder and named it mySite also.
finally, i configured fp server extensions on this folder.
however, when i go to one of the feedback forms on the mySite site, fill in some information and click submit.. i get the following error:
Cannot run the FrontPage Server Extensions on this page: "http://localhost/mySite/Help.html
i have read the kb article #156842 and checked that it is pointing to a valid _private folder... it seems to be - it points to the d:\inetpub\wwwroot\_privat
e folder (which does exist)
i also tried changing it to point to the d:\inetpub\wwwroot\mySite\
_private folder and that doesnt work either.
