Default Requirements to use this book


I live in Germany and will order this book online. There is a section in the beginning of the book called "What's required to use this book". Can anyone tell me what's in that section? What do I need to use the book? Is Visual Web Developer Express sufficient or do I need something else too?

I believe the section you are referring to actually is entitled
"What You Need to Use This Book".
It is a very short piece and says"

To gain the most from this book, you should have the following software installed
on your system:
o A minimum of Windows XP Home Edition as your operating system.
o Microsoft Visual Web Developer
o Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.
Because Visual Web Developer includes the .NET Framework and ASP.NET 2.0, these
three pieces of software are all you will need to develop ASP.NET applications.
Thats it.

You will actually start by going to Appenix B. Follow that procedure until you
get all the Wrox files consructed exactly as the book's subsequent chapters will
make clear. (The Appendix B is a bit confusing in places.) The proper folder
structure is, assuming c: is the hardrive you are going to use:
c:\BegASPNET2\Chapters\Begin\Chapter1 thru Chapter16,Final Application\codefiles.

You should also have the 'End' Folder under c:\BegAspNet\Chapters. In it will be
all the 'correct book solutions' to the very same projects as in the Begin folder.

Typos abound throughout but you can work around them.

Good Luck
