When you install a 2007 Microsoft Office suite on a computer that has an earlier version of Microsoft Office with FrontPage installed, FrontPage is not removed during the installation.
To work around this behavior for 2007 Office system products, remove the earlier version of Office. To do this, you can include this step as part of the installation process by modifying the Config.xml file in Notepad.
How to modify the Config.xml fileFor more information about how to modify the Config.xml file, see the "Config.xml file in the 2007 Office system" topic in the 2007 Office Resource Kit. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
This behavior occurs because the 2007 Office suites do not include Microsoft FrontPage as one of the programs to be installed. Similarly, other Office programs may also not be removed if the 2007 Office suite installation does not include a previously installed pre-2007 Office program. Some other shared Office components may also not be removed, such as the Office Shortcut Bar. The Office Shortcut Bar is installed in versions of Office earlier than Office 2003.
