All the registered IIS MIME types in IIS 7 + Windows Vista are registered in the following config file.

 

C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config

I was wondering where I can find the same file in Windows XP when I have IIS 6 installed?
Additionally, in Vista if I add a MIME type MANUALLY, it is included in a newly created [web.config] file in the corresponding directory. Where will be this particualr directory in XP?

c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\metabase.xml

c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\metabase.xml

Thanks netvance.

Note : apparently, unlike in IIS 7 every MIME entry written, irrespective of MANUAL/PROGRAMMATICAL ways to write them, is written on this file it seems.
