Want to use Frontpage with Win7? Heres how!

Like me, want to use Frontpage with Windows 7?

Hello,
I have Windows 7 Ultimate and have finally found that if you can get Frontpage 2003 and get it to update this version 11.8164.8221 SP3 it works fine. I have been use to using Frontpage 2002 with xp for years.

This is what I've found out to work. Get Frontpage 2003 to update to version 11.8164.8221 SP3.

Yes yes, of course you must have Frontpage extensions installed on your hosted site, that's a given must. We all know this.

A 7+ year old developement tool that was never really that good?

Do yourself a favor and get a copy of Expression Web 3.0 or Expression Studio 3.0... MS has for free if you are a student... www.dreamspark.com and it's also available through msdnaa!

Honestly FP2003 isnt even WC3 compliant, Expression Web is and it includes support for so much more than FP ever did! Get it and you wont be disappointed!

I like Frontpage and....

I like Frontpage, I've used it for many years. I'm use to it, its super easy and so I like it. Everyone has a opinion of course.

For those who are like me and like Frontpage and have or now wanting to go and use newer Windows 7, I wanted to offer help to those who wants to still use Frontpage.

Have a nice day.

I think you failed to understand my point. The pages FP2003 produces are not WC3 compliant. Much of todays web browsing is done from devices other than PC's, and FP doesnt produce pages that work on them.

It is not responsible web publishing using technologies that are 7 years old...

Darryl,
I see your point however I and who I know pretty much all view websites, web pages and such view them 99.9% all via pc's only with pc browsers. I and who I know aren't targeting those who have iphones, and othe mobile net surfing devices. Our web pages are meant to mainly be viewed via pc's with your average browsers.

Have a nice day.

I assume that your coding for Internet Explorer 6 too!!! Seriously, frontpage was killed off for a reason, please use a modern software package (I dont care which one.)

I'm so confused.... You know all your websites visitors??? If you know them all, why have a website? Why not give them a phone call, or drop a letter or a flyer in their mailbox?

Have you ever heard of Moore's Law? PC's and surrounding technologies increase at an astounding rate... they double every 18-24 months! Your using a 7 year old dev tool is like sending smoke signals instead of text messages! FP 2003 is dead!

Acquire new skills, stop using frames, learn css, learn tags, learn layers... get a compliant webpage/website dev tool! If you are scared of the learning curve it's much less since you know FP... but do it soon!

From your reasoning, shouldnt you be posting this on the Windows XP, or Windows 98 forums?

If he's happy with it, why burst his bubble.

Hitek, have fun and don't forget the big fonts.

Because it is irresponsible web design. I'm not bursting his bubble... we have had this banter back and forth from the start.

Have you never heard of WC3 or Web 2.0??? To draw an analogy... it would be like a programmer using Visual Studio 2003 to create an app for Win7.

Would you install it???
