RoboHelp and IIS 6.0

Ok, so for some reason, flash wasn't working on my Windows Server 2003 running IIS 6.0. This impacted me since I wanted to run RoboHelp Flash. After a lot of tinkering and searching, turns out that IIS wouldn't allow the flashhelp_default.fhs file to run because IIS wouldn't allow the MIME type of fhs to run.This is a simple fix. Go into the properties of the web server and add in the mime type of fhs with a desscription of text/xml. Voila!! life is happy again.

I hope this helps someone else in this same boat.

Bless you. This is a wierd issue. Does that mean that IIS returns a 404 Not Found for any file extension that it doesn't have registered as a MIME type?

That's what I have found.
