.htaccess not working on windows shared server

P: n/a
Hi,

Having a little issue with .htaccess not working on windows server. I
have clean url's setup using the htaccess file, working fine on linux
server. I have researched for a while and found .htaccess doesn't work
on windows. Since this is a shared hosting i don't have access to
httpd.conf so that i can edit it.

I have been reading this forum about it. http://forum.mambo-foundation.org/showthread.php?t=1857

Can someone advise me on this?

Wrong! :-) It works fine if you are using apache.

Shared apache hosting (public accessible?) on a windows? It sounds ugly!
Can someone advise me on this?

Hi,

I have no access to the http.conf and how would I check if mod_rewrite
enabled? I have no error messages at the moment, the url rewrite just
doesn't seem to work with the htaccess file on windows shared server.
Everything was working fine on linux server, I have no control over
the server and cannot switch to linux either cause that is what the
client wants.

This is not php question and .htaccess is not an IIS configuration file.
