Did you read the text file that came with the "vb" and "c" zip file version?

This text file has all you need to know if you have asp.net V2 basics skills!

This project you set up like all other ASP.net applications.
1.Unzip for example C# project
2.Place the folder anywhere on the hard disk
3.You must have Iternet Information Services installed on your windows xp or vista operating system (IIS 6.0 or higher), you can find Internet information services on the Windows XP instalation disk or find some user manual on the internet how to configure an install IIS on the computer
4.Open internet information services and define new site and when it prompt for the folder path simply navigate the folder on you hard disk.
5.Make shure that your IIS support .aspx extension if not also find user manual how to add this type of file to your IIS
6.Then just simply run your project from any of your browser simply typing path http://localhost:default.aspx
Thats it your done

You should be aware that you can run these project(s) directly off the hard drive without using IIS or creating a virtual directory. In fact, that's how it's done in the book.
