I am using Visual InterDev version 6.o.  While creating new project I created search.txt to search for documents in the project containing specific words.
When i preview the page in browser, it works perfectly.
The search page does not work when i uploaded it on server. It does not even work when interDev is not open, it works only when i preview the page while interdev is open otherwise I get the following error:
"Front Page Run-Time Component Page
You have submitted a form or followed a link to a page that requires a web server and the FrontPage Server Extensions to function properly.

This form or other FrontPage component will work correctly if you publish this web to a web server that has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed."

I have enquired the host for my website and he says that the server has Frontpage Server Extensions installed.
Please help me.

Do you have frontpage server extensions configured on the server?
It sounds like you're using frontpage specific components that are available on your development platform but not the server itself.

to check if frontpage server extensions are installed...

go to http://yousite.com/_vti_inf.html and hopefully you get a FrontPage Configuration Information page.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I think it should be a points split. (I think I explained why it happened first- hard to tell without author comment).
thanks,
Alicia.

Frontpage server extensions are installed on the server, still the search function was not working.
I found another way to add search. I used Search Engine Builder standard edition from www.aleadsoft.com.
