With FrontPage 97, errors relating to the SourceSafe integration automatically display in the Web Server NT Event Log, usually on the Application tab. However, this behavior must be enabled in FrontPage 2000 or FrontPage 98.


Front Page 98 Server Extensions

Adding the following entry to the Frontpg.ini file on the Web server, allows you to see the error messages that are causing the SourceSafe integration in FrontPage to fail:


The preceding line should be placed in the "[FrontPage 3.0]" section of the Frontpg.ini file.

Front Page 2000 Server Extensions (version or later)

Add the following registry entry as a String Value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\All Ports \LogInitialSourceControlErrors

with the value "1"

Note All errors logged by FrontPage regarding SourceSafe integration are logged at the server end of the transaction. On a Windows NT system, the errors are logged in the "Windows NT Event Viewer Application" log. On a computer running Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98, the errors are logged in the Frontpg log file located in the root of the drive to which Windows is installed. The errors are not logged to the client computer.

In both cases you may want to set the value to zero once all errors have been resolved to avoid unnecessary activity in the Event log.
