It unbelievable that this could be the case, but it is Microsoft. Am I just SOL with WIN ME, so I have to get 2000, go back to 98, or use XP? Is the home version of XP for which a coupon came with this machine lacking in basic funcationality as Win ME appears to be?
Is there any work around on Win ME?
Well, gave up ME. Now trying to resurect an old Win 98 machine. Anytime "view live data" is selected (In UltraDev) it either doesn't find the database, or suggests changing the server. Frontpage was also installedonthis machine. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ exists, but it seems PWS may have been installed in C:\Webshare\wwwroot\
Several attempts were made to remove PWS and put it in InetPub instead of the Webshare directory, where I presume UltraDev looks for it, but to no avail. PWS seems rather stubborn.
This sound familiar? Anybody know what might be wrong, or how to correct it?
can't confirm this, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that installing PWS on ME would void your support from MS... :(
Looks like something inserted a little extra http stuff in the
C:\Websharehttp://wwwroot\ The http:// is not supposed to be there.
There are some simple PWS setup instructions [url=support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q195/3/48.ASP]here[/url].
Although PWS 4.0 is not supported in Windows Me, you may be able to install it in Windows Me for testing purposesQ266456 [support.microsoft.com]
