I added the basic Web Service example to the downloads section:

http://activevfp.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=33523

Use any vfp mtdll as a web service using a .NET asmx page.

Options:
1.) FREE .NET SDK (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=fe6f2099-b7b4-4f47-a244-c96d69c35dec&displaylang=en)
TLB Command to use:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\v2.0\Bin\tlbimp.exe C:\wstest3\mytest.dll /out:C:\wstest3\bin\mytest_proxy.dll /namespace:mytest
OR
2.) Use VS.NET

Also, don't forget you can use many of the techniques, classes, and methods developed in ActiveVFP for web apps for web services as well.  For example, pdf printing, threading, not locking IIS, etc
