After you create a FrontPage Web that is set to Only registered users have browse and you add an account with Author or Administer permission, users cannot create a Web Folder for this Web or open the Web in FrontPage 2000 or any other Microsoft Office 2000 application. This problem occurs for IIS Web servers running version 184.108.40.20617 of the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions. The user receives multiple authentication dialogs that never authenticate, and eventually, one of the following error messages occurs:
You do not have permission to access this Web Folder location.
You are not authorized to perform the current operation.
