I have a new installation of W2K SP4 on about 150 networked PCs supported by a W2K server.
Students login thro' Active Directory.

When using Frontpage 2000 I find that across the PCs, Frontpage is unstale, particularly crashing when switching to Preview HTML mode

Help!!!

My Frontpage did that same after I installed SP4.  I had to uninstall it,  then re-install it.  Now it is working fine.

I hope that you have the same problem.

I recommend verifying you have the latest Office 2000 Service Pack before doing the unintall and reinstall process. This may not fix your problem but it is certainly quicker than doing a complete uninstall and reinstall and if it does not work on the first machine then you know what is ahead of you.

SP4 might be the problem.  

If you archived SP4 uninstall it then uninstall Frontpage.
Then
Install SP4
Then
Install Frontpage

This will take 30 minutes and will solve your problem.  

Othrewise you might spend days looking for the solution.

No great loss.. the preview mode sucks.  Right click on the page in design mode and choose preview in browser.  or go to file perview in browser.
