New Install - can't create web on local IIS server?!?


P

I am setting up a new PC - brand new install of XP Pro.

Installed all XP updates
Installed IIS 5.1 (Add/Remove Porgrams - Windows components -etc.)
Checked for updates again
Installed Frontpage server extension 2002
Installed Frontpage 2002 client
Checked for updates again!

Open Frontpage client - try to create a new web at http://localhost/myweb
and get the error message "Server Error: The server extensions were
unable to access the file frontpg.lck. Please check the file
permissions"

I am logged in with an Administrator account.

Next, I tried turning off "simple file sharing" and using the
"Security" tab on the folder properties for both wwwroot and _vti_pvt
gave myself, the IUSR_ComputerName user and finally "Everyone" full
access. Still have the same problem - can't create a web due to "file
permissions"!!!
From the FPSE administration stuff, I added myself as an
"administrator". The Administrators group was alread there and I am a
member. This also didn't help.

Then I uninstalled Frontpage, extensions & IIS and reinstalled it all
again - same results!!!

What is totally frustrating is that the old PC sitting about 10 feet
from the new one SEEMS to have all the default settings and it works
fine.

Any ideas? I'm running out of stuff to try. I've searched google for
hours and am not finding anything that helps....

THanks for any help - pdarrah

You must configure the default web to use the FP extensions. You really should have install the
FP2000 extensions from the Windows XP CD, then once you have them working upgrade to the FP2002
extensions (which by the way are no longer available for download)

Thanks for the reply! Actually, the 1st IIS install I did include the
FP2000 extensions, then I left it out on the 2nd install just to see
if it helped. The 2002 extensions I downloaded a couple years ago and
I still had them. I also downloaded the update that is still
available and installed that.

The default web is configured to use the extensions (as best as I can
tell). If I use the IIS management console, the "tasks" available for
the default web include removing the extensions (actually, both a 2002
version and a plain version)
