Hyperlink insertion now fails in FP 203

Hyperlink insertion now fails in FP 203

Hyperlink insertion now fails in FP 203

Why would the feature in FrontPage 2003 that marks a spot with a hyperlink stop opening up?  I've used this software for several versions several years but the right-button click to start a hyperlink has stopped giving me the window that inserts a URL address.

To cope with this I uninstalled FP 2003 then reinstalled it. (Big mistake--it was apparently an upgrade version, so the reinstall refused until I found my FP2000 and installed that.)  But the fresh installation displays the same problem. Hyperlinks have to be typed in manually in HTML mode.   Might this be related to IExplorer version 7?

Why not go into HTML mode and just edit it to what you want.

Answering my own inquiry:

A missing file in Windows\system32 was responsible. Check for hlink.dll.  Without it you have problems jumping to the url in Outlook, Excel, and other programs. Also you have big problems installing some new software, as I did with Microsoft Expression Web (said a file esetup.dll was missing).

Thanks for posting your found solution!  One of us may need it one day! smile
