Overview

The RTR FrontPage Server Extensions (RTR FPSE) for IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 is available for immediate download from Ready-to-Run Software. The RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 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. There is no functional difference; the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions have now been ported to work with IIS 7.5 by RTR. As such, the basic install prerequisites and procedures have not changed. Note : This version of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions is designed for use with IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. If you are using IIS 7.0, please see FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions for IIS 7.0 on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista .

Features

This version of the RTR FPSE 2002 introduces no new functionality, and is essentially the same version that was created for Windows Server 2008 RTM and Windows Vista that has been updated to work on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.

Please note: The RTR FrontPage Server Extensions require an affordable and cost effective license. The RTR FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 will install without the license, but FPSE functionality will be unavailable until you install and configure the license.
