#1: New to FP Extensions, where is _vti_bin/shtml.exe?

Posted on 2007-03-09 07:52:07 by jason

I've been a designer and programmer for about 10 years, but I've
never, ever, ever used Frontpage or Frontpage Extensions! So when a
client asked me to transfer his site from his old host to my servers,
I accepted without knowing that it was built with Frontpage.

Now I'm lost.

I do have Frontpage Extensions installed; version 5.0.2.4803 (the
previous host used 5.0.2.2623). The problem I'm having is that the
site has a form set up that refers to _vti_bin/shtml.exe, but this
file doesn't seem to exist on either my server or the previous host!
When I try to use it on my server, I just get an ISE, so I know
something's not right, I just don't know what.

Here is the section of the page that refers to shtml.exe:

<!--webbot BOT="GeneratedScript" endspan --><form method="POST"
onsubmit="return FrontPage_Form1_Validator(this)" action="_vti_bin/
shtml.exe/quotes.htm" name="FrontPage_Form1" webbot-action="--WEBBOT-
SELF--" language="JavaScript">

<!--webbot bot="SaveResults" startspan S-Label-Fields="TRUE"

S-Email-Format="TEXT/PRE" S-Email-Address="jwcarlton@gmail.com" --
><input TYPE="hidden" NAME="VTI-GROUP" VALUE="0"><!--webbot

bot="SaveResults" endspan i-checksum="43374" -->


Everything else on the page is standard HTML.

Where do I even begin to look for a reason behind the ISE? Nothing
shows up in the error log, and since the program referenced by the
action attribute, /home/domain/www/_vti_bin/shtml.exe, doesn't exist
on either server... I'm lost.

TIA,

Jason

Jason,

Its possible you may need to copy it from:
/usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/exes/_vti_bin/shtml.exe

And then copy it to:
/home/domain/www/_vti_bin

I know that sounds ridiculous, but try it. You might also copy
"fpcount.exe" from the same directory. Symbolic links may or may not work.
