The procedure you describe configures IIS to pass requests for .html files to FoxWeb, but it's highly discouraged, because FoxWeb internally does not strip extensions other than ".fwx" from the URL. Even though your site appears to work, it's quite possible that there are problems you did not notice, or you will have problems in the future -- possibly after an upgrade of your VFP, or FoxWeb software.

Please tell me if its wrong :
On windows 2000
After that, i don´t change any FWX file extension, only change on URL´s the extension FWX by HTML.
it works but... its safe?

The .fwx extension was chosen somewhat randomly (FoxWeb eXecutable?) and could be made configurable, but it would require changes in many different parts of the code. We have yet to hear a compelling reason to do this.

Well, i´m a foxweb programmer since 4 or 5 years ago.
I've seen a lot of applications that appear to show html files with query strings and i don´t understand how this work.
If i can configure foxweb to process HTML files like FWX and IIS to process HTM files, i´ll be very happy

No, at this point the fwx extension is hard-coded. Is there a reason why you want to do this? Please elaborate, so that we can evaluate your needs and determine whether there's an alternate solution.

Hi, i´m Eloy from México....
This is my question..
Can i use and config another file extension instead of FWX??
I mean, can Foxweb compile file extension different to FWX?
I´m using Foxweb 2.x, and i´ll buy foxweb 3 as soon as posible
