Thanks for your reply. The addessbar property is already .F. Basically this
form is designed to show, by default a company home page. However if (a) there
is no physical connection to the internet or (b) if an admin has blocked
internet access from MyExecutable.EXE then we want to display the contents of a
README.HTML which resides on the client machine instead. It is the second part
that I am working on but I cannot seem to get the Windows Firewall to prevent
access to the internet from within MyExecutable.EXE

How about setting the OLE control "Addressbar" property to be .F.
That way they won't be able to key in any web addresses.

Subject: How to block internet access from within a VFP executable
I have a VFP executable (MyExecutable.EXE) which has a form containing an
OLEBrowser control. I want to temporarily block internet access from this form
using the Windows (7) firewall. I have created a new Outbound Rule pointing to
MyExecutable.EXE but the form still loads and displays a web page.
