    FrontPage locking up after upgrade to WinXP (2002 SP-2)

    I used to run FrontPage 2002 on a Windows 2000 machine without any problems. Ever since I upgraded to Windows XP professional (clean install), my FrontPage has been giving me fits. It locks up (Not Responding) if I try to change more than one thing on a page or edit more than one page. If I try to publish a page, it gives me an "Access Denied" error.

    I saw several other posts describing similar issues on this board, so I'm guessing it's not just me. Unfortunately, none of those old posts had any solutions. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Presumably you backed up your web, did a clean install of Windows XP, then restored your web from the backup?
    If so, how did you backup and restore your web? (If it was to CD, you may find everything is Read Only).

    The whole web is stored on a Windows 2000 server and I just update it from my machine. So, no, I did not back up my web. I've been using FP 2002 for quite awhile with no problems on both a Windows 2000 and NT 4.0 Workstation. I installed Windows XP from CD, Office XP from a network share, then FP 2002 from CD. I had the same problem several months ago when I tried using Windows XP...I gave up fighting with it and went back to NT 4 (running FP 2002) and it was just fine again.

    It will let me update pages, it just locks up every few seconds. I just have to work really fast and save a lot.

    Thanks,
    Becky
