Hi Andrew Sorry I've not read your earlier thread but to develop ASP locally you'll need either: Win98/win2k/winXP running IIS - IIS comes with all of them. However there are certain restrictions, mainly that you can't add third party components or use CDO(NTS) Win2k server/win2k3 running IIS - what you want really. LAMP with Chillisoft installed - Third party implementation of ASP (Sun), doesn't exactly match M$ ASP, but very close. Or you could skip a generation and try .net. All the M$ platforms will support it bar win98 (I think). And M$ offer a free IDE with a built in webserver so you don't need to run IIS. http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/default.aspx?tabIndex=4&tabId=46 HTH Norman -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of website Sent: 07 May 2004 10:23 To: List Subject: [thelist] ASP devloped Locally Hi All Now that the Apache PHP na MySQL is up and running I want to add the ability to develop ASP locally is there anything specific I need to know or watch out for or I am up against limited resources to set this up due to licencing MS products?
