Windows 7: Cannot open website in Frontpage 2003 or SharePoint Designer

Cannot open website in Frontpage 2003 or SharePoint Designer

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 32bit and now I am having issues editing my website. I had been using Frontpage 2003 and had no problems accessing my website in XP but for some reason I cannot open my site in either FP or SharePoint Designer. I go to File > Open Site and I get and error (see photo).

Can ANYONE help me out here? Thanks!

Just to be clear, my website files are all online. None are stored locally on my computer and Frontpage extensions are indeed installed on the server.

If you aren't using SharePoint you should use MS Expression Microsoft Expression Studio Ultimate | Expression Studio Web Professional | Expression Encoder Pro | Microsoft® Expression® .
(SharePoint Designer is used for SharePoint WSS or MOSS sites.)

So you're saying that I have to buy a whole new Web Editing program?

I'm saying SharePoint Designer isn't the proper tool for your described task (unless you are using SharePoint).

I switched from FP3 to EW4 but can't easily make a marquee (moving headline) on my Windows 7 Machine.

With FP3, I used add-in J-Bots and loved its easy menus and dialog boxes. I understand that J-Moves is the replacement for J-Bots, but the phone number for Webs Unlimited (author of J-Bots and J-Moves) now answers in a language I can't fathom.

Does anyone know:

  1. how to easily make a marquee in EW4? I'm not a code guy.
  2. whether the old J-Bots will work in EW4 as it did in FP3?
  3. whether J-Moves is any good?
  4. if Webs Unlimited is still in business and how to contact them (email from their site gets no answer)?
All suggestions will be gratefully received. Thank you.
