As most people that have installed IIS 7 on Windows Vista or Windows
codenamed "Longhorn" have realized, there are no options to install the
FrontPage Server Extensions, leaving the only possibly way to edit your web
site that is hosted on a Vista/Longhorn computer is to edit the web site
locally using the file system, or to use FTP to upload your files to a
remote Vista/Longhorn computer.

The FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE) 2002 are part of the Office XP system
of products. The Office XP system, including FPSE 2002, left mainstream
support on July 11th, 2005, according to the Office lifecycle policy. At
that time, the FrontPage Server Extensions were removed from the Microsoft
Download Center. Office policy is to remove software from the Download
Center that is no longer supported. This policy allows us to focus our
support efforts on the latest technologies. FPSE 2002 continues to be
available on Windows Server 2003 in the Add Windows Components section of
the Add/Remove Programs control panel.

FPSE 2002 will continue to be supported by security updates through the end
of the extended support period, and all existing security content will
remain available. For more information on the support lifecycle policy, see
the Microsoft Lifecycle web page at the following URL:
http://support.microsoft.com/?pr=lifecycle

Because Microsoft realizes that the FrontPage Server Extensions are
essential to many web hosting companies, the Internet Information Services
product team is researching the development of an updated version of FPSE
2002 that will work with Microsoft Windows codenamed "Longhorn" and
Microsoft Windows Vista.
