Do you have a section that defines rights for the cgi-bin directory?  Here's what it should look like:
        <Directory "c:\Apache22\cgi-bin">
                AllowOverride None
                Options None
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
Also, I recommend that in future development you start using script mapped URLs, which are cleaner:

Sorry to trouble you with this probably simple matter, but I'm having to change webserver from Xitami on Windows 2000 to Apache 2.2.3 on Windows 2000. I'm having trouble getting foxweb to work under Apache cgi.

1. Foxweb programs are in c:\program files\foxweb\programs, in folders called huntsearch and huntsearch_Mackintosh

2. Apache is in c:\Apache22

3. Foxweb.exe is in c:\Apache22\cgi-bin

4. httpd.conf contains these lines:
# various stuff
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Apache22/cgi-bin"
#more stuff
    AddHandler foxweb-script .fwx
    Action foxweb-script /cgi-bin/FoxWeb.exe

5. The web root is c:\huntsearch. This contains any empty folder called huntsearch in an attempt to get the script mapping you suggest in the online help working.

When I try to access a page by the url

I get the error:

403 forbidden
You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/foxweb.exe/huntsearch_Mackintosh/SearchForm.fwx on this server.

Any guidance very welcome

Thanks in advance...
