In fact, you should upgrade XP Home to Professional Edition.
And then install the IIS (Internet Information Service) from the Professional Edition.

Also, you need to download and install .NET Framework 1.1 from Microsoft to run ASPX application. The framework is free on Microsoft

   I don't think it is possible for you to run visual studio on xp home edition..xp home edition is perticularly designed for a simple users..for browising,games etc..

   any way i am not sure it supports development..

   Just try the following steps...

   first of all install IIS on your machine...This usually comes with operating system cd..go to add/remove components>windows components from here u can install iis by using operating system cd..

   if installation of iis is sucessful then go for .net frame work...if u have visual studio cd's you can install .netframework from that..

   If it was not supporting the Installation of iis.You must change your operating system..

   Hope this helps-Ashok Parchuri

Roy and Ashok are correct. XP Home Edition does not allow installation of IIS. However, you can develop WinForms applications as the .NET framework and Visual Studio.NET will run on it.
