If you want to use FPSE on Windows, then IIS is probably your best bet (most
of the other FPSE versions are for various webservers on non-Windows

Uninstall Apache. Install IIS from the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel ->
Windows Components. Then visit WindowsUpdate to get any patches you need for

Note that IIS on desktop OSes (Windows NT Workstation, Windows 2000 Pro,
Windows XP Pro) have a limit of 10 concurrent HTTP connections. If you need
more (to host a production site), you're probably best off getting Windows
2003 Server Web Edition.

: David,
: Is there any specific reason you're running Apache, instead of IIS?
: FrontPage Server Extensions are available for Apache, but I've heard
: that it's an ordeal to install and configure. The GUI in IIS is much
: more convenient and easier to manage. I would also raise the issue of
: support from Microsoft, should you need it... also consider fixes,
: patches, and new versions when they become available.
