The page cannot be displayed

By Ciscodude ·
I have created a website with DreamweaverMX which has an Index.htm file containing frames. When I open a version of the file from July 2005 it opens just fine and I can see the htm files displayed in the frames. When I open a version of the file saved 4/4/2006, with no changes, just resaved, every frame shows "The page cannot be displayed". I am using IE6.0.2900 w/128 bit encr. on a WinXP SP2 machine. The web files are just located in a file on my hard drive and not hosted with IIS. The individual htm files that go into the frames all display just fine by them selves. Some of the files have behaviors coded in for some of the links. Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Help!!!

There's most likely something different between the two files. Are you using a new version of Dreamweaver to save the file now as compared to the one you saved back in 2005? I would open both of them in wordpad and see if there are any differences that would explain this odd behavior. Pay attention to the way the pointers to the seperate htm files in each of the frames are referenced.

If you want to, email them to me and I'll check
