Installing FPSE breaks IIS

Hey Guys,

I am setting up a new server, 2003x64 SP2.  Installed IIS with no problem.  Localhost gives me "Page under construction".  Next I downloaded the FPSE 2002 x64 Extensions and installed that.  Went back to IIS Manger, extensions were visible (although the ASP.NET tab was not) and the Sharepoint Admin site was visible and running.  Right click on either and select Browse gives page cannot be displayed, as does any of the frontpage tasks under all tasks.

I suspect that I am missing a DLL registration.  Also I noticed that the FPSE was installed to program files(x86)/common files rather than the 64bit program files folder.

Reboot had no effect.  Browsing to localhost or 127.0.0.1 had not effect.  I know the problem has to do with my inexperience working with web servers, and am positive it's a configuration issue.  So, what do I configure?

Thanks,

Geoff

Hi,

(this is not really an IIS question, so the following may not be entirely accurate)

as far as I understand it, Sharepoint services are actually a version of frontpage extensions.  therefore, you probably shouldn't install both at the same time.  

You can apparently use frontpage client with sharepoint server.

Cheers.

Hi,

Thanks.  I have tried so many things to get this going.  What I need to do it configure IIS V6 on server 2k3x64 to run ASP.NET 3.5, Frontpage Extensions (to connect from Visual Studio remotely) and also SQL Server 2005.  All three items are going to be integrated.  I suspect that if we don't have an answer in a day or so I will close the question as not resolved and look into hiring a contractor to configure the system for us.

Working on it today I got to the point where I can see the Frontpage configuration pages.  But I still cannot connect from Visual Studio, and cannot access the SQL Server from a webpage, and getting access denied (401.2) errors.
