Can Microsoft FrontPAge be used to edit a site hosted on an IIS 7.5 server?

Can Microsoft FrontPAge be used to edit a site hosted on an IIS 7.5 server? Currently the developer can FTP to the site to upload files, but they want to use Front Page for site work. If we make it some WebDAV is enabled on the server side, would the developer be able to mount the site to his local machine, and then run Front Page to do his edits, changes, & uploads?

No, Front Page Server Extensions are no longer supported by IIS7.5. You should be able to use WebDAV, but it won't work the same as the Front Page Server Extensions.

Is there a work around that will allow Front Page to work with IIS 7.5?
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

There isn't a workaround available for it. They've completely cut off support because it's such an old and unused product now.

okay what we've done is enable WebDAV on the back end, and enable the developer to mount the drive locally as a network share and go from there ... so far feedback has been positive as far as connecting by the Developer. Curiously, logging in from a Mac is a lot faster than a Win7 PC as far as mounting and directory navigation ... thanks for your feedback and confirming a few things.

We'll be moving to a SharePoint CMS rollout shortly, this was strictly to deal with a short term need.
