Default IIS in windows xp Home edition

Hi
Is it possible to install and run IIS in Windows XP home edition. I need it for my school work so developer edition of IIS is more than enough. If yes, where can I find the software?

Thanks in advance
Romi

Romi:
Microsoft does not support or endorse IIS running on Win XP Home. There are several people who have figured out a hack to make this work though. If you google:
IIS "windows XP home"
the first several hits will talk about the registry changes and processes to do this.

A much better solution though would be to install Cassini:
http://asp.net/Projects/Cassini/Down...ndex=0&tabid=1

Or if you'll be working with ASP.NET 2.0, install Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition (free) and use it's built in web server.

Hi
Thanks for your suggestion. I installed Cassini personal web server. But when I try to run it, it gives error message "Cassini managed web server failed to start listening to port 80. Possible conflict with another web server on the same port." I am pretty sure there is no other web server installed in my system. Please advise.

Romi,

I received the same error and did some debugging. In my case the error was caused by CassiniWebServer.exe being unable to find Cassini.dll. One way to fix this is run build.bat (described ReadMe.txt) to compile Cassini and CassiniWebServer and adds Cassini.dll to Global Assembly Cache.

If you installed Cassini in the default location, you could also just run:

Code:
gacutil /i c:\cassini\cassini.dll
Hope this helps.

Thank you. That is exactly the cause - most of us probably just add the Cassini dir to the path and wonder why it does not work.

Very, very bad error message.

Yes. Place your XP cd in your cd rom, when the windows install screen comes up, select Install Optional Windows Components, click that and select Internet Information Services when the window pops up.

If you have the .net framework already installed prior to the IIS install do this:

Goto start --> run --> cmd
Navigate to the framework directory e.g., [SystemDrive]\windows\microsoft.net\framework\[version]
When there type this command: aspnet_regiis -i

That will register the framework with IIS.
