email not working anymore

I am using front page 2003 to work on an internal website that is hosted by a w2k3 server with the 2002 fp extensions installed.

I have previously built pages (forms) that allow for the collection of and emailing of data.  Recently when I have tried to use the existing pages, or create new ones, i get the error pasted below.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks, MH

FrontPage Run-Time Component Page
You have submitted a form or followed a link to a page that requires a web server and the FrontPage Server Extensions to function properly.

This form or other FrontPage component will work correctly if you publish this web to a web server that has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed.

Click the <Back> arrow to return to the previous page.

RE: email not working anymore

The error would suggest that even though FP extensions are installed, your forms cannot find them. Are the forms in the root of the extension folders?


RE: email not working anymore

They are the in wwwroot folder.  The same place they have always been.  

The only thing I can think of that has changed since they last worked, is that I now have Dreamweaver installed on my machine as well as Frontpage03.

Other than that, everything is the same.


RE: email not working anymore


If you get the "FrontPage Run-Time Component Page" message from submit on a published page, either the extensions are missing or have become corrupted.

Although a number of FP form messages can have multiple causes, this message only appears in the absence of the extensions.

If however you get this when submitting a form in browser preview, I take it as an indication I have a working form. If not in browser preview you usually get a page cannot be found error.

If you look at the source code for this page you will see the _derived/nortbots notation in the beginning form tag.
Another (actually a mirror) indication the extensions are not there or corrupted.

If you have trouble with a specific page, provide the URL for the page in question

Hope I have been of some help,

RE: email not working anymore

Micheal, thanks for your response.  I did indeed find the _derived/nortbots notation in the beginning form tag.  When I go to the IIS server that hosts this internal website (http://intranet - hosted by a server named lrdcdc) Share Point Administration (http://lrdcdc:8550/fpadmdll.dll) shows that everything is fine, and when i click the administration, and then the upgrade links, the upgrade completes without any problems.  

I am unclear how to proceed.  Do I literally uninstall and reinstall FrontPage Server Extensions 2002?  Is there a newer version I should be uprading to?  

Any additional help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

RE: email not working anymore

Honestly, I am capable of debugging/diagnosing the form, but I have yet to get my hands dirty setting up my own server, so I can't advise regarding this.

Hope I have been of some help,
