    FrontPage Express in IE5.5 (Internet Explorer 5.5)

    When I installed IE 5.5 over 5.0, FrontPage Express was removed. The MS KnowledgeBase says that this can be repaired by uninstalling 5.5 and returning to the old version. Is there any way to get FrontPage Express back without uninstalling version 5.5?

    Microsoft is no longer supporting FrontPage Express (FPE) and it will no longer be available for download from the Microsoft site and have discontinued the Newsgroup.

    You cannot use the Add/Remove programs tool in Control Panel to install FrontPage Express after Windows 98 second edition is installed. If you try to downgrade to an earlier version of IE 5, the same problem occurs. No custom install, no FPE. FPE does not come with Office 2000 this is a concern for many educational facilities and not a few others as well. There is a workaround solution however.

    Take out an old Magazine disc that has IE 5.0 on it (or below) and do a search for this file!

    Fpesetup.cab

    Once you have found it, open it up with WinZip and extract all the files to a new directory of your choice, and then double click on the fpxpress.exe file in the directory you extracted all the files to and you will have a copy of FPE.

    So you can have IE 5.5 and a free version of FrontPage Express!

    NOTE: The 'file new' command and 'help' do not work with installing FPE in this manner. You are not going to miss the help so don't worry about it. You should find all the help and resources you need in this section of AccessFP.net

    As for the 'File new' command just make a blank.htm file and then click file open, open the blank.htm and make your page with it. It works just as good as 'File New'.
