Sorry, is David Scott (ITEC_MAN) better? :)
under wwwroot\_layouts\ and any subwebs in their \_layouts\ directory
and the program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server
you will find the htx files. Note however that changing the references of
OWS_Search_Proxy in these files to say 'Web' does not seem to make any
difference - it seems to be the setting up the .idq mapping to the
C:\windows\system32\idq.dll (with GET, HEAD, POST in the limit to field and
ticking the 'script engine' and 'check that file exists' boxes) that fixes
my Workstation (2000 and XP) installs...
David... I mean ITEC_MAN !
