    I am trying to install Frontpage98 on my XP computer so that I can then install the 2002 upgrade, but I keep getting error message number 5, whatever that is. I have tried installing as administrator and that did not help, either. what am i doing wrong?

    i have moved to wed design and development - maybe a better forum - if we do not get other replies - we can move again to business applications

    i think the issue is
    Error 5 = memory access violation "Access Denied"
    and FP98 will be looking for a IIS service - and I dont think XP Home supports that - although I have seen contradictory information about that

    also a firewall like norton, can cause issues - what firewall do you have ?

    when you upgrade - can you just install the 2002 upgrade and when asked for the previous version pop the FP98 disk in

    any particular reason you want to use frontpage specifically
