    Vista Basic Home Edition - need IIS

    Am I able to add IIS to this? If so, how? I can install Apache but I have an
    ASP 3.0 website that I need to develop. Is it possible to use Apache for ASP
    3.0? What about ASP.net? There is a web server in the VS 2005 development
    environment but I haven't tried it yet, mostly because my web app is ASP
    3.0. I'm new to Vista, and ASP too so any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Vista home basic support IIS features to support WCF only but you can't
    use as a Web Server.
    IIS is available only in Premium Editions
    * Windows Vista Home Premium Edition
    * Windows Vista Business Edition
    * Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
    * Windows Vista Enterprise Edition

    Can I download IIS 6 to run on my Vista Home Basic Edition? Is there
    anything that I can download to work with ASP 3.0 that will be compatible
    with my Vista? Thanks

    As far as I know IIS 6 can't be installed on Vista Home Basic...and It
    works with Windows Server 2003 only.

    What about IIS4? Will that work with ASP 3.0 and be compatible with Vista?
    All I really need is something for that one ASP.net website and all of my
    other work will be with ASP.net. It doesn't seem worth spending $130 to
    upgrade to Vista Premium.

    It looks like it's only $79.00 to upgrade to Premium but the website doesn't
    really have any useful comparisons between the two versions of vista.

    I'm not sure what the situation is about running VirtualPC on Vista Basic,
    but if you can, and you only need this for development, you can always try
    using one of the free trials for Vista Enterprise or Windows Server 2008 in
    ..vhd format.

    Once it expires, you can just download the next .vhd and use that.

    My two cents,

    If you are going to use Vista, you then have to upgrade to one that has IIS
    7.

    As for using IIS 7 with ASP, you can visit the following two links as a
    starting point:

    Tips for Classic ASP developers on IIS7
    http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2...s-on-iis7.aspx

    Forum discussing usage of Classic ASP applications on the IIS 7 platform:

    http://forums.iis.net/1044.aspx

    My understanding is that Apache, by default, does not support ASP but you
    could search the net for add-on that should work.


    Hope this helps and good luck.

    You got an ASP 3.0 site you need to develop, then you need IIS7 to do it
    properly. You talk of VS 2005 having a Web server, yes, it has one which
    is based off of a File System, and you would still need to convert the
    File System developed solution over to a true Web server application
    that runs against IIS.

    The VS 2005 Web server File System is only for development or demo
    purposes to get something going quickly, and is by no means a permanent
    solution.

    You need to upgrade to Vista Ultimate or Business to get the full
    version of IIS7 that you can use with ASP 3.0 and ASP.NET Web development.

    Here is some information about ASP 3.0 and IIS7. You'll find more
    information by using Google.
