    Yes it is possible. You do need the necessary software in your PC to run it.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

        and Wordpad to edit the occasional php file. (notepad doesn't format the php files correctly, open them in Wordpad)

              Ignore hitmancode47 and beishe8, they got confused and their replies are not relevant to what you want to do.
