    You do not need apache.

    When you installed IIS 6 did you install Frontpage extensions 2002?

    If you did not,  install them

    If you did
    uninstall them then reinstall them clean.


    If you have
    1- FP 2003
    2- IIS 6
    3- FP 2002 extensions

    All will work fine

    I recommend that you stop web services,  uninstall II6 using the Admin tools,  then Restart your PC.
    After that reinstall IIS 6 and install FP 2002 extensions.

    It should work.  There is no reason not to.

    I have removed the Apache, clean installed the FPSE 2002, IIS 6.0 is running because I can see the website from my workstation.  The thing that is not working is the form.  When I hit the submit button, there is an error that says I have tryed to go to a page that does not have FPSE installed.

    I do have it installed though. I have read some articles say something about a disk based web site.  I am not sure what that means, but I have this feeling that is where the problem is.  

    I opened FrontPage 2003, opened the site that I was working on, then I published the site, I picked Server Extensions site, and I typed in localhost as the site name, this allows the site to run from my workstation and the form worked.  So I think that this is where the problem lies.

    How would I publish the site from my computer to the server.  Lets say the server name is corey_server-wks1111, how would I publish to this site through FrontPage instead of the copy and paste method that I tried before.  Also where do I put the files, do they go under intepub folder?  

    Please help me sort this out.  Thanks all!

    I am just dumping it to a file, which is in the _private folder, a simple text file that is all.

    The message is obvious.  The place where the form_results.csv file resides does not have FP extensions installed.

    Check them.

    Nope, this is what I get:

    /***********************************************************************************/
    FrontPage 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.

    Click the <Back> arrow to return to the previous page.
    /************************************************************************************/

    I am not sure what to do here, the FPSE 2002 are on there, but it seems as though they are not working.  This is the actually extension to this page:

    _derived/nortbots.htm

    Whatever that is.  

    Thanks for the help so far everyone.  I appreciate it!

    Hi wiggs1006,

    Are you testing the form on a disk-based web.  I mean a folder on your PC.

    Go to File
    Publish
    And publish the folder that you are using to your local drive or to the destination server then try.

    Here is a microsoft article that talks about your problem.

    Hi Wiggs,

    Got your problem finally now.

    You have the form in a folder
    The folder that has the form is a normal folder
    You have to convert it to a web to be able to use it

    I created a normal folder
    Created a page with a form in it
    Saved the form and tried to use it in the browser
    I got the exact message that you are getting.

    Just publish the folder to your local hard drive where you have iis running or to the server which has iis running.

    You folder in the Folder List panel of Frontpage should not read C:\My Documents and Settings\Administrator ...etc
    It should read
    http://yourlocalcomputername/FolderName

    Regards
