SUMMARY

This article explains how to create a Microsoft Visual InterDev project that connects to an existing virtual directory. The Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions must be installed in the existing virtual directory. By using the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions, you can connect to subwebs where the content is saved both inside and outside the Web server home directory (for example, C:\Inetpub\Wwwroot).

NOTE: Earlier versions of the FrontPage Server Extensions require that you save the Web site content in the Web server home directory.

The Web project is created and populated with the existing content of the virtual directory.
