I don't think you can because I don't see how you can upload arbitrary files 
to your web site there. Can you upload files with extension mwx?? I couldn't 
figure out how.

I was going to tell you the following, until I realized that.

Well first you have to do what the MicroWorlds Help says, here:


Creating a Project for Posting on the Web

First, take into account the recommendations in the topic Tips for Creating 
Projects on the Web (project size and primitives that you can't use) and 
Embedded or Linked Media Files. You must save your project as a normal project 
before you can make the special web version. Make sure your project is 
perfectly debugged before posting it.

Next, choose Create HTML Template from the File menu. When creating an HTML 
template, MicroWorlds EX asks you to specify a location for saving the mwx and 
html files. These files must be saved in the same folder. On most operating 
systems, the dialog box allows you to browse and create a new folder for 
saving the files in. In some others (Windows 98), you must create the folder 
yourself, prior to this operation.

When saving a project as an HTML template, MicroWorlds EX creates two files 
with the same name and different extensions (for example.: MyProject.mwx and 
MyProject.html). It also copies into that folder any media files that are 
required to run your project. 

But instead of doing the last step

copy what is between the body BODY tags in the created HTML file (open it with 

for example

<DIV ALIGN="center">
<OBJECT classid="CLSID:BD31C421-1DD7-4D61-8595-C7C695D65C2F" width="744" 
  <PARAM name="URL" value="myproj.mwx">
  <EMBED src="myproj.mwx" type="application/x-mwx-plugin" 
pluginspage="http://www.lcsi.ca/webplayer"; width="744" height="426"></EMBED>

and paste it in the area provided for raw HTML (image attached)

  • To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
