Done all of that - turned on more stuff - and hey presto it works. So fiddly.

I think I will now start to turn off items one by one and see if it still works.



Thank you.

Please be more specific than "does not work". What are the symptoms you are experiencing? If necessary please send us screenshots at
There are detailed instructions on what you need to do to prepare for setup at Pay particular attention to the "Microsoft IIS on Recent Windows versions" section.
Also, please note that you must re-run the FoxWeb setup, if you enabled the required IIS features after you originally ran it. These features are required in order for the setup to be able to configure IIS.

 I have been running Foweb 2.6 and 4 for 15 years on ever increasing server types but currently Windows Server 2008 server but I am trying to transfer to a 2016 server instead. Are there any setup instructions as I have turned on just about everything and it still will not work. During the install I received a message saying that I have to turn on several items but they are turned on and installed as well as some others that probably not required.
Foxweb control has got precisely the same settings as the existing except for adding in a server name in the Virtual Servers tab.The fwx files are in the same folder - c:\foxweb\programs.
I thought it was supposed to be easier after the fiddling around we have with the 2008 setup.
