FrontPage Express Install for Windows 98 second edition

My Online Notes

This information is online so I have access to it when I'm away from home and doing a clean install of the Windows 98 SE operating system on a computer and need to install FrontPage Express.

To install FrontPage Express after I have done a clean install of Windows 98 second edition on a computer I will need a full install version of Windows 98 first edition.

First I open Windows Explorer. I go to the Program Files directory and create a new directory called FrontPage. Then I open the directory on the Windows 98 first edition disk called win98. I open the file called Win98_53.cab with Win Zip. I extract these files to the FrontPage directory I made in Program Files.

   
I go back to the directory on the Windows 98 first edition disk called win98. I open the file called Win98_54.cab with Win Zip. I extract this file to the FrontPage directory I made in Program Files.

   
I go back to the directory on the Windows 98 first edition disk called win98. I open the file called Win98_59.cab with Win Zip. I extract this file to the FrontPage directory I made in Program Files.
fpxpress.exe
I could double click on the fpxpress.exe file in the FrontPage directory in Program files and FrontPage Express would work, but I want to put it in the start menu. This is how I put FrontPage Express in the start menu:
open windows explorer
open the windows directory
open the start menu directory
open the programs directory
In the programs directory I create a directory called FrontPage. Then I go to the directory in Program files called FrontPage. I right click on the file called fpxpress.exe and select copy. I go back to the directory I made called FrontPage in the programs directory. I right click and select paste shortcut.

To make the help feature of FrontPage Express work I open the directory on the Windows 98 first edition disk called win98. I open the file called Win98_51.cab with Win Zip. I extract this file: fpxpress.chm and put it in this location: c:\windows\help

If I did everything right I should be able to click the start button, go to programs and select FrontPage. FrontPage Express should open and work fine.
