    Asp.Net & Windows XP Home


    Hi,Advice please. I have XP Home installed on my home pc and I have recently
    purchased VS.Net Pro with a view to developing a web site (VB/Asp.net) on
    my home pc, then placing the site with a web host for all to see.

    I am working from books to get my site up and running. I have hit a problem
    on the first example and it strikes me that XP Home may well be the limiting
    factor.

    I understood that XP Pro includes IIS, but my plan was that this wouldn't
    be an issue as the web host would provide IIS; it wasn't necessary for me
    to have IIS on my home pc. However, I think I've oversimplified with this
    assumption. Can anyone confirm that using XP Home is the limiting factor
    here, together with the related limitations, particularly with respect to
    ASP.NET and my objective of creating a website for access via a web host.
    Thanks, Gary.

    Gary,

    You won't be able to run ASP pages on your machine without IIS. Which comes
    with the XP Pro version.
    Microsoft used to have a scaled down version of IIS called PWS (personal web
    server) that could be installed on their other OS' like Win98 etc. I would
    check if they have that or something similar still for XP Home.

    Well - this is one of the most discussed topic in ASP newsrooms

    As Micheal pointed out, Windows XP Home Edition does not include or support
    any version of IIS. And it does not include or support PWS as well. For more
    info on this, please refer to MS KB article - Q304197.

    At the same time, I should mention this as well. Some time back, there was
    this article publised at 15seconds.com which claimed there is a way to install
    IIS in Windows XP HE boxes. You can find this article at -

    http://www.15seconds.com/issue/020118.htm

    Having said this, my suggestion would be to upgrade to Windows XP Professional.

    HTH,
