RTR's FrontPage® Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 8.5, IIS 8 and IIS 7.5 are now all available!
Follow these instructions to:
The RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 8.5 on Windows Server 2012 R2, the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 8 on Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, and the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 have the same functionality as both the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista and the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 6 on Windows Server 2003. The only functional difference is that the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions have now been ported to work with IIS 8.5, IIS 8 and IIS 7.5.
As such, the basic install prerequisites and procedures have not changed. The above procedures deal with licensing issues, but for full details on the FrontPage Server Extensions requirements, installation, and operation, please see:
Requirement: You must use the server native administrator account, user name Administrator, to install the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions in Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. In Windows 8 and Windows 7, you may have to activate the user Administrator account in order to use it. You should locate it in Computer Management | System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Users folder. When activating the Administrator account, be sure to set a password to be able to administer the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions.
After you have downloaded the correct FPSE 2002 installation package, you need to make sure that you install the FrontPage Server Extensions using full administrative permissions.
The above steps are required because the User Account Control (UAC) security component in the Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 R2 operating systems will prevent the FPSE 2002 installation package from installing correctly. For more information about UAC, please see the following documentation:
Warning: While the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions have been built and tested for IIS 8.5 with Windows 2012 R2, IIS 8 with Windows 2012 and Windows 8 and IIS 7.5 with Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bit versions), many of the clients are quite old and there are issues that you should be aware of before you purchase any licenses. Please refer to our Known Issues page for details.
Important Note: Please uninstall old versions of the server extensions before installing! If you have attempted to install any version of the Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on any machine with an IIS 7.5 server (i.e. any machine with Windows 2008 R2 Server or Windows 7) or with an IIS 8 server (i.e. any machine with Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8) or with an IIS 8.5 server (i.e. any machine with Windows Server 2012 R2), it is imperative that you completely uninstall the old version prior to installing the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 for IIS 8.5, IIS 8 or IIS 7.5.
