    Two things I found about my FrontPage 2003, one is that it cannot be installed when Office 2010 64-bit is installed and the other is that my Domain Hosting service wanted me to change as they don't support FrontPage extensions. I went with Microsoft Expression Web 4.

    Office 2010 is the first version to be available as either 32-bit or 64-bit.
    I am running Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit with media center and I do have FrontPage 2003 installed and it does what I want it to do. If I remember right when I installed it there was some complaint which I just ignored and it finished the install fine.

    As for Expression Web I bought a big thick MS book and went through it and did all the tutorials, the problem is I don't use it often enough so every time I want to us it, it is like starting fresh. Maybe my short term memory is going :-( because I have no such problem using Frontpage.

    Frontpage also appears to work 99.9% on Windows 10 except that when creating a URL & attempt to open a folder to find the file to link to, the program crashes; if you navigate to the file by NOT opening a folder, it works.

    One real disadvantage of Frontpage is the time it takes sometimes to open the site & save a simple 150k file - why does it have to work with a temporary file.

    Expressions4 appears to access & save files much faster but there are simple things that Frontpage does which Expressions4 doesn't. OK. I'm not the most technically orientated person in the world & there are probably better ways to organise how pages acquire their data but here's a simple example: I want to copy the content from an Excel table which has 2 columns. I can copy/paste into Frontpage, press TAB to position the cursor in the next column, switch to Excel, copy the data, switch back to Frontpage & paste the data without a problem. In Expressions4 the cursor position is 'lost' during the 2nd paste & if you press TAB it selects a different option along the menu bar. The only way is to reselect the cell within the column & paste making the process rather tedious.

    Another problem with Expressions4 is how to format an individual cell so that only, for example, 1, 2, 0r 3 sides are formatted; it's a separate action with the cell properties of Frontpage but it's missing from Expressions4.

    When I open Expressions4, I immediately get an error. I've no idea what this means but pressing OK accesses the site OK.

In previous builds this ancient & aged program worked with the exception of inserting hyperlinks but I can report that in this build (10158) all is working including hyperlinks. One less reason for me not to upgrade to Windows 10.
