How do I get FrontPage 2003 to open correctly in Win7

When I open FrontPage I get an error msg that it did not open correctly the last time, and would I like to open it in safe mode? I can open it in safe mode. I've tried re-installing with no difference. I have heard of an update to install but can not find it anyplace. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Windows 10 64 bit

I have FP2003 running, in both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit, without problems. I have all the available updates from Microsoft installed.

I still have web sites that were generated with the (obsolete and non HTML standard) FP2003. (I'm working on replacements with a current standard web site design program).

I'm trying to embed a slide show into my web site. I can't get it to play when the page opens. I've tried all the scripts I found on the web. Can anyone direct me to a free site or program that can help me do this, or just point me in the direction of a pre-written script? Thanks....
