When you attempt to install the FrontPage 2000 Trial version on a computer with any prerelease versions of Microsoft Office 2000, you will receive the following warning:
Warning:Setup has detected a prerelease version of an Office 2000 family application installed on this computer. You must exit setup and uninstall the pre-released software before you install this version. If you choose to continue, Office 2000 may not install properly.[Exit Setup] [continue]

If you choose to continue with setup in the default installation location, the pre-release version of Office 2000 will no longer function. It may also produce problems in the FrontPage Trial version.

Quit setup, and remove any prerelease versions of any Office family applications before you install the FrontPage 2000 Trial version.

The FrontPage 2000 Trial version is completely compatible with released versions of Office 2000 family applications, including the full released version of FrontPage 2000.
