Hello,

Someone told me that I can't run IIS here at home since I have Windows Home Edition. What I want to do is start building pages here at home in ASP.net in Visual Studio. I'd like to download the trial version of Visual Studio and then go through a tutorial book or something like that.

Will I need to upgrade to Windows Professional, then install IIS in order to do this

Thanks,

Pete

No. VS 2005 and VWD 2005 Express have a local web server to run your aspx files.

You need to create the website in File System, not Local IIS website. With local
web server, only you can see the aspx web page on your computer, others
can not see your http://.....aspx web page. In other words, local web server is only
good for you test your aspx file at your computer.
