SUMMARY

This article describes the recommended method for upgrading your FrontPage Server Extensions from Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) version 3.0 to IIS version 4.0.

MORE INFORMATION

If you plan to upgrade the FrontPage Server Extensions, perform the Server Extension upgrade BEFORE the IIS upgrade. It is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version of the FrontPage Server Extensions.
  1. Rename %SystemRoot%\Frontpg.ini to Frontpg.bak.
  2. Upgrade to IIS 4.0 by running the Windows NT Option Pack setup. For more details on upgrading to IIS 4.0, please see the IIS Web site at the following Internet address:
    http://www.microsoft.com/iis
    NOTE: During Setup, select Upgrade Plus. Click to clear the option for the FrontPage Server Extensions. This prevents installing an older version of the extensions.

  3. When the upgrade to IIS 4.0 is complete, rename %SystemRoot%\Frontpg.bak to Frontpg.ini, and then run the downloaded FrontPage Server Extensions executable.
The version of FrontPage Server Extensions installed with the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack is 3.0.2.1105. This is not the most recent version, and there is no reason to install it. If the above procedure is not followed, the upgrade will be slower; however, there are no known FrontPage Server Extensions problems caused by it.

NOTE: FrontPage author and administrator permissions are unaffected by the steps in this article.
