Asking for FrontPage Server Extensions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows 7, Visual 2008 proffesional, Office Proffesional 2007

    I am trying to get up to speed on E-Commerce using APress' book "Beginnning E-commerce in C#"

    The exercise ask us to create a web page that will run on the local IIS

    It asks us to turn on IIS (which I have)
    It asks us to add the new site to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (which I have)
    It asks us ot go to Control Panel>Administrative>IIS manager tool and  and add the new site (which I have) 

    From within Visual Studio, we are told to go to
    File>New>WebSite and choose ASP.Net Web Site

    Go to the location Combox and change to "HTTP"
    Enter the web Site.

    When I click the "OK" button I get an error message that I have not installed FrontPage Server Extensions

    I looked around on the web for Front Page Server Extensions and most of what I found said that it was a Windows feature that you would turn on, but was obsolete.
    I looked for it anyway, but I could not find it amongst the features in Windows 7

    Is it something I need to turn on or download?

    Is there something newer that I need to be using in place of FrontPage Server Extensions?
