    Yes, IIS. You wont need anything else to run asp.net, but to develop, you may need an IDE like Visual Studio.net

    I think .Net comes with its own built in web server nowadays, but I always use it with IIS as I prefer working that way.

    To develop you <b>need</b> visual studio. That's a free download from http://www.microsoft.com/express/product/default.aspx


    For databases mysql works fine, access is great but slower, and there's a free version of sql server (sql server express). Personally speaking I much prefer mysql.

    Don't try developing with any editor except visual studio (aka visual web develop), as it's just not worthwhile.

    Once installed, it's the best web development environment on the planet.

    Hi there,

    i would like to suggest that if you are using asp.net 1.1(2003) then u need to add IIS server with the help of Windows XP CD, but if you are using Dot (2.0)2005 , then you need not to do any this everything is inbuilt provided
    you only need to install the software that's it.

    Any reply or query is most welcome.
    Thank you

    Visual Studio (paid) or Visual Web Developer Express (free) are the normal development tools for ASP.Net - there isnt the greatest of difference between the two for small projects and you can download free GUIs for compiling code which is the one bit that VWDE is missing

    IIS is all you technically need for sites however both of the above have test servers built in and IIS for XP Pro is limited and so not viable for live site hosting. That said, you will almost certainly be wanting to use an SQL server and the natural partner for .Net is SQL Server (rather than MySQL - though you can use this too) and again there is a free version called SQL Server Express which is perfectly servicable for both development testing and small live sites

    For ASP classic you will simply need IIS of any version. This can be run on win 2k pro, XP Pro, 2003 server and I'm not sure which versions of vista.

    ASP.NET is the same as ASP classic except you will need the .net framework installed on the machine which is available though windows update and will most likely be on your machine.

    Your best bet would be to simply spend the $5.00 a month for a windows host instead of trying to get it to work locally. You can technically get ASP to run on a linux server but don't waste your time.

    You can technically run .Net on linux too but agree that the port isnt that great and given windows -v- linux hosting prices are at most a couple of dollars difference it isnt worth the messing about

    yes, but he'll stilll need a local environment to develop and test his work before uploading.

    you can look visual studio 2008 express edition which has integrated web server. If you want to host you will need to install iis. then instal .net framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 and run from command prompt c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.xxxxx\ aspnet_regiis -i which will add the asp.net handlers to the iis

    Visual Studio Express

    This should come with all the tools you need for local .net development
