Procedure

To configure DDE in a distributed environment through a standalone Web server on machine B and then configure DDE to work on that system, which would mean storing the translation results directory on machine B.

See the DDE Reference Manual for more information on the necessary install steps. An updated version is available on the ESRI Support site.

Open the fmeDownload.htm file located in the directory for the Web site that was integrated with DDE. Change the HTML viewer request URL to point to the Web server on the DDE host, machine B.
