I have not been able to hit any breakpoint and I get the
HTTP 1.0/500 error 87, which seems top be undocumented.
What application should I run?  Inetsw95.exe or something?

1) Stop your personal web server.2) Goto your project settings or press alt-f7 and goto the debug tab.3)In the "executable for debug session" text box enter "C:\Program Files\Personal Web Server\WebServer\Inetsw95.exe" or where ever your Inetsw95.exe file is.4) In your "program arguments" text box put in the following arguments "-e W3Svc"If you still don't get any break point check your command-parsing map's because that's all then that could not be correct.Here is an sample of one of my maps and the function declerationBEGIN_PARSE_MAP(CMy2000Extension, CHttpServer)
// TODO: insert your ON_PARSE_COMMAND() and
// ON_PARSE_COMMAND_PARAMS() here to hook up your commands.
// For example:
ON_PARSE_COMMAND(PutData, CMy2000Extension, ITS_PSTR ITS_PSTR ITS_PSTR ITS_PSTR ITS_PSTR)
ON_PARSE_COMMAND_PARAMS("Kno TelNo eMail Subject Concern")
ON_PARSE_COMMAND(Default, CMy2000Extension, ITS_EMPTY)
DEFAULT_PARSE_COMMAND(Default, CMy2000Extension)
END_PARSE_MAP(CMy2000Extension)
Here is the function.void PutData(CHttpServerContext* pCtxt, CString Kno, CString TelNo, CString eMail, CString Subject, CString Concern);I hope it help you some what.Good luck.Lodewyk

I  also found the answer by combining the information from several other sources.  Everything works fine now.
It seems so simple afterwards, as most things do in the programming business.
The trick is to stop the server and start it from inside the Visual C IDE and also to know the name of the PWS and to set up the HTML-page and parse the parameters correctly.

Thanks a lot anyway.

uhm, I've got a question regarding this.

I have PWS installed. Stopped PWS. Put the executable stuff and program arguments in there...and it gives me an error "F:\ISAPI\Test\w3svc not found"

Could you perhaps help me some?

I will award points if you could help me with this.

regards,
CJ
