View products that this article applies to.


This step-by-step guide explains how to use the command-line tools to install the Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, on Microsoft Windows 2000, and on Microsoft Windows XP. This article only addresses how to install the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.


Before you perform the procedures in this article, your system configuration must meet the following software requirements:
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services:
    • Microsoft Internet Information Server version 4.0 on Windows NT 4.0
    • Microsoft Internet Information Services version 5.0 on Windows 2000
    • Microsoft Internet Information Services version 5.1 on Windows XP Professional
    • Microsoft Internet Information Services version 6.0 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer:
    • Version 4.0 or later on Windows NT 4.0
    • Version 5.0 or later on Windows 2000
    • Version 6.0 or later on Windows XP Professional
  • Disk Space Requirements:
    Between 30 megabytes (MB) and 70 MB of hard disk space must be available for your installation of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, plus sufficient hard-disk space to host the Web sites and the subwebs that your users will create. These requirements are guidelines only and can vary, depending on the computer and the operating system.

Important Notes

  • On a Windows-based computer, the security features of FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions require the NTFS file system. Windows 2000 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data. If you try to install the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions to a FAT-formatted hard disk, your default virtual server may not be extended, and you cannot use the security features of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.
  • You must have administrative rights on the server. If you are working remotely, you must have administrative rights on the remote server, and you must have a copy of Owsrmadm on the local computer.

Step 1: Download and Install the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions

Important If you are running Windows Server 2003, do not download the server extensions. Install the extensions by using the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. To do so, double-click Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, click Add/Remove Windows Components, click Application Server, and then click Internet Information Services.
  1. Start your Web browser, and then visit the following Microsoft Web site:
  2. Click the fpse02_x86_ENG.exe link in the English and International Version Downloads section.
  3. Click the Download link on the FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 Web Download for Windows page.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, click Save this program to disk.
  5. You will be prompted to save to a location on your computer's hard disk. Click Browse, and then choose a location to save the file to. Note where you save the file.
  6. Open the folder that you saved the server extensions download in.
  7. Double-click fpse02_x86_ENG.exe.
  8. Click through the Setup Wizard to install the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions by selecting the default options in all steps.

Step 2: Extend the Server by Using the Command-Line Tools

  1. Click Start, point to Run. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  2. Type the following command (where c is the hard disk that is on your computer that contains the FrontPage Server Extensions), and then press ENTER:
    cd 'c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\50\bin'
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER (where 80 is the port number for your virtual server and where username is your Windows user name):
    owsadm.exe -o install -p 80 -u username -sp publish

    Your Web server's Default Web Site setting is initially configured to be on port 80, but if you have changed that setting or if you are installing the server extensions on a different virtual server, substitute that port number for 80. Or, use an instance number, such as /LM/W3SVC/1 or /LM/W3SVC/3.

    If your user name is a domain account, use the following syntax when you type your user name:
  4. Type EXIT, and then press ENTER to close the command prompt.


If a required parameter is missing, the operation fails and you must type the operation and parameters again.
