Page cannot be displayed is the main error that comes up. What is the
specifc HTTP error number and what is the exact error displayed at the
bottom of the page? [Note: Disable Show friendly error messages in
IE->Tools->Internet Options->Advanced tab].
Also ensure that the _vti_bin folder in IIS has Application Execute
permissions set to "Scripts and Executables".

| I'm attempting to install FP SE 2002 on our WinNT box for one domain that
| host. We host about a hundred domains total on this server, and while I
| don't care if they all get the 2002 upgrade (only about half a dozen use
| at all, and just this one is using FP 2002).
| I installed the FP2002SE exe, but web page it tried to open (I'm assuming
| config/management page) after installation could not be found.
| When I attempt to Upgrade to 2002 Extensions in IIS, a page is launched
| going to:
| encoded domain name)
| This doesn't work, I get a "Page cannot be displayed" error. If I change
| "machine name" to the actual IP of the machine, I get the same error. If I
| then change the IP to the domain I'm attempting to set up, I get prompted
| for a user/pass, which I fill out w/ the Admin info. When I submit it, I
| the same page cannot be displayed error.
| I have attempted to open the MS SharePoint Administrator, but it also
| attempts to open a webpage (http://(machine name):4424/fpadmdll.dll) that
| cannot be found, no matter if I change the machine name to the IP or not.
| I have uninstalled FP2kSE twice & re-installed them, rebooting both
| can't find anything worthwhile on MS' site, and searching newsgroups has
| found me nothing that resulted in a fix.
| I can launch FPMMC, and I see FrontPage Server Extensions -> (machine
| but there's nothing in there to do other than Check Server Extensions, and
| that just 'tightens up security.'
| I'm really frustrated and feeling particularly dumb. I hope someone can
