More information

Adding a project to SourceSafe

In previous versions of FrontPage, a user added a project to SourceSafe from the Tools menu by choosing Web settings and filling in the Source Control Project field. In FrontPage 2000, that option is no longer available. Adding projects to SourceSafe is done from inside the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Look at "Advanced Administrative Tasks" in the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions Resource Kit for more information on this. See the "Reference" section for information on how to locate the Resource Kit.

Multiple SourceSafe databases

In previous versions of the FrontPage Server Extensions, a Web server could integrate with one SourceSafe database at a time. This is still the case with FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions, however there is a workaround that allows you to add projects to multiple databases. For more information see:
246123� HOWTO: Add Web Projects to Multiple SourceSafe Databases

Error logging

In previous versions of FrontPage, to enable error logging from SourceSafe, it was required to edit the text file "Frontpg.ini". That functionality is now contained in the registry. For more information see:
