After you install FrontPage 97, the FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed to the Microsoft Personal Web Server.

To resolve this problem, do the following:

  1. On the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Network icon to open the Network Properties.
  3. Click the Identification tab.
  4. In the Computer Name box, type a name for the computer. NOTE: The name can contain any alpha-number character, including the hyphen (-).
  5. Click OK.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. In Windows Explorer, double-click the FrontPage Server Administrator (fpsrvwin.exe) file. By default this file is located in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft FrontPage\bin folder.
