Error Installing FrontPage Extensions or Themes

In 2006 Microsoft discontinued support for the FrontPage Extensions. We have decided to no longer provide for FrontPage Extensions and recommend that you use FTP or WebDAV instead.

Problem:

An Error is reported when installing Frontpage extensions about a file or folder not being there. Though you are able to upload the file or find it on the server.

Solution:

The most common problem is that the Linux Servers are case sensitive whereas FrontPage and Microsoft are not. Make sure the file or folder you are getting this error is the same case throughout. This should allow you to upload the theme and have the extensions find it.

It is a good idea to Click on 'Uninstall Extensions' then 'Clean Up Old Extensions' and 'Install' rather then just Re-Install.
