FP2002 index.htm crash, error "system exception access violation"
Posted on 2004-11-09
I'm using FrontPage2002 (SP2) on WinXP, upgraded from FP2000.
Existing webs that were created prior to the upgrade open fine.
Any new web I create crashes whenever I try to edit or save the Index.htm (brings up the MS error window w/ "send" "don't send"), or it hangs on the hourglass forever. I tried creating a new one from a template and I get the error "system exception access violation" on the index.htm.
I tried the steps below from another EE solution, but it didn't work.
Someone else mentioned deleting *.web files. (The only ones I find are in C:\documents & settings....in a \cache subdirectory.) What are these files for? Can they be deleted?
Is there any other solution?
1- Open Windows Explorer
2- Right Click the file "index.htm"
3- Select Open With
4- Select NotePad
5- Save it again in NotePad keeping the .htm extension
6- Try to open it again in Frontpage
