Hi there

It looks like the program works up to the point of logging into the website
using Frontpage/Sharepoint option.

It is my beliefe that Frontpage 2003 comes with everything you need for out
of the box solutions.

What do I need or what am I missing?

Thanks

So, do you actually have a web site with a host and an account set up with
them? Don't quite understand what you are asking. What do you mean by
"logging into the website"?

What do you think you are missing?
Blog?
Forum? - Do not use the FrontPage Discussion Web if you value your sanity.
Shopping Cart?
Spam free forms-to-email? (the FrontPage version will get you all the Spam
you will ever want, and more besides.
Spam free Guestbook?
....

"What am I missing" is an open question that cannot be answered unless we
know what you want.

It is generally best practice to develop the web site on your PC, then
publish to the server. If you avoid the components that need FrontPage
extensions, then you can publish with FTP instead of extensions - be aware
that support for the extensions is disappearing.

FWIW, I had the same problem with FP2000 and Vista. Program worked
fine locally but would not log on to the live site, however it did
seem to allow me to "publish". I've mostly moved on to Expression Web
but I have one site that's heavy with FP forms. I can still edit them
in EW, but not as easilyl as in FP. For now I still have FP2K on a XP
laptop for those times.

I know most will say it's best to edit locally, then publish "up", but
I've become accustomed to doing it the opposite way, probably because
the preview in FP didn't always correspond to what acutally displayed
on the server.

I just installed Win 7 this weekend, it seems to have resolved the
compatibility issues with most of my older software/hardware that
Vista didn't like. I might try installing FP again, see if it runs
correctly.

Another for what's worth post/follow up:

I successfully installed and used FP2K on Win7 Home Premium and now do
not encounter the problems I outlined below.

The only suggestion I may have for the original poster: When
installing, do a Custom Install and check "Not Available' on the
option to install the Personal Web Server and server Admin panel.
