Top Customer Reviews
Tech support was very helpful and cured the problem. I use this product to develop asp and php websites. Expression Web plays nice with Xamp and Apache so that you can run WordPress and other popular server based software.
I'm pushing the rating review up to four stars. It would have gotten five but Microsoft, in their overly proprietary zealous posture, failed to allow for hard and motherboard upgrades. Other software companies provide methods of upgrading hardware without having to beg tech support for help. Perhaps by now Microsoft has fixed this bug?
No wonder some people hate Microsoft. . .Expression Web 4 can be installed only twice.
If you have to upgrade a hard disk drive or replace a laptop - you can forget about Expression Web.
I've used Front Page, Expression Web 2 and Expression Web 4
Expression Web 4 works pretty good but requires training - web site development has gotten too complex to expect simple intuitive software. So, even if you smarten up and learn css and run Windows with Xampp and php, Expression Web 4 will eventually fail you when you need to upgrade your hardware.
What happens is this: You install a new hard drive and re-install your software applications.
The Expression Web 4 installation will require activation, which it does and it will report that the product is already activated. Next, you need to enter your "Product Activation" key - and when you do, EW4 will report that the Product Activation number is invalid.
Even if you clone your hard drive using something like Acronis, you will have this problem.
The solution?Read more ›
Calling Microsoft, they say they will be happy to help me, if I only pay them $290 for the one support call, since it is a "professional" product they do not provide the regular support as they do for home products.
I sent the product back and I will think very hard before spending any more money on Microsoft products, if they refuse to provide any support. (Not the first time, but now I will remember).
A few of the most important advantages:
Speed - as fast as Word (some HTML editors are oddly slow loading and saving files, and have an overall sluggishness).
Spell Checker - as good as Word (some HTML editors have no spell checker, while other editors' spell check is slow and/or not so accurate).
Cursor Movement - as good as Word (many HTML editors have agonizingly slow cursor behavior).
Word Wrap - as good as Word (some HTML editors have very poor or no word wrap).
Appearances - modern dark theme that is a huge improvement over most all other known HTML editors (no more 80s/90s style!).
Stability - pretty good although I have noticed a few minor glitches when the program is used non-stop for over eight hours (it fails to check the schema compatibility correctly, but exiting and restarting the program solves the problem).
Layout - the normal menus and icons are in a similar and/or logical location as other Office products (some editors rearrange their menus, which requires the user to relearn the layout).
W3C validation - the built-in validation for HTML and CSS has so far always been correct, and further verification through W3C is just a few clicks away (no other known editor is as well equipped to validate HTML and CSS).
Cost - the upgrade cost is less expensive than almost all other paid HTML editors (I know of no reason to even consider paying for any HTML editor other than Expression).Read more ›
It's a nice product for the price.
The installation and the licensing were flawless. My download was from the Microsoft site for the evaluation copy but I bought my final copy from Amazon and the licensing was no problem.
The editor was not real intuitive I thought. There are lots of web resources to help including some nice videos and the Help pages that come are nice but there is no manual with the editor either printed or online. But then my old (and I mean real old) editor didn't either, but this editor has lots more features.
I ended up buying a copy of Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 4 in 24 Hours from Barnes and Noble. I'm only half way through and am not working on my own pages yet but the book is great and I love Expression Web 4 now that the book has shown me the way. Expression Web 4 looks like a great product.
Couple of glitches so far
I did have a few issues with the editor. I was looking at a large web page (19,000 lines) that gets generated by some software on my PC and it was not letting me click on a tag and show me the end tag (The <html> tag i.e. the whole page). The page had a couple of errors on it, like no </head> and no </html> tags and the code view page just takes forever to update and locks up and stuff like that. It seems to run much better after I fixed a few of the obvious errors. And it did not report those missing tags, I had to look for them.
But I still like the program.Read more ›
