Fron Page

by mblackmon / February 28, 2009 9:34 PM PST

I have been told that I can add (or download) MS front page to my computer. I am running XP pro 2002 (service pack 3). I have tried and finally all but given up on finding a way to do this other than buying a complete upgrade. Is there a way for me to add front page? I am trying to build a simple web page, nothing complicated. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with upgraded RAM maxed out. Thanks, Mike

To install it I slip my Frontpage CD into my machines drive and the installer installs it.

Maybe you don't have the CD?

That is correct, I do not have the C/D. So what should I do? Mike

Purchase one as Frontpage IS NOT SHAREWARE OR FREEWARE.

Frontpage Express on the other hand is freeware and can still be found at various places (including the ability to to copy the FPESETUP.CAB from an old cd with IE4 or IE5 on it then use winzip or pkunzip to extract the files. MSN and AOL gave away alot of such cd's).

You can download FPXpress.exe from

Run the program FPXpress.exe. It will prompt you that it is going to unzip the FPXpress files to your C:\drive. This is correct, so click .

It will then notify you that 21 files have been unzipped successfully. Click , and then close the self-extractor.

You should now open Windows Explorer (Start | Programs | Windows Explorer), and look for C:\FPXpress. If it is there then all is OK.

Create a shortcut from your desktop to the FPXpress program file in the FPXpress folder.

Start FrontPage Express by clicking on desktop icon.
