interdev_programming thread: NT4S, IIS 4.0, FPSE, InterDev - not cooperating


Message #1 by Avril_Jones@p... on Wed, 29 Aug 2001 08:53:03 -0700
	Load the FP98 server extensions on your NT4 / IIS4 servers.  Make
sure to load IIS4 server extensions, FP98 will give you other options.  
If
you have Visual Studio 6, the NT4 option pack files which include the 
FP98
administration tools are on CD 2.  Mike.
