How to install ASP on your own computer

Print

It's not difficult to install and run ASP on your own computer. To do that, you must install Microsoft's Personal Web Server (PWS) or Internet Information Services (IIS).

How to Install PWS on Windows 95 or Windows NT

If you run the preceding operating systems you can install Personal Web Server (PWS). PWS is micro version of Internet Information Services (IIS) though still fully functional.

Personal Web Server (PWS) is not shipped with Windows NT or Windows 95. So, to run ASP on these Workstations you will have to download "Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack" from Microsoft.

How to Install PWS on Windows 98

The Windows 98 CD includes PWS, but you need to run a separate setup program to fully install and configure it.

  • Place the Windows 98 CD-Rom into your CD-Rom Drive
  • From the Windows 98 autorun CD menu select 'Browse This CD'
  • Open the Add-ons folder on your Windows98 CD and find the PWS folder
  • Run the setup.exe file and follow the installation steps to install PWS
  • Once PWS is installed and you have rebooted your machine you should see a new added Personal Web Manager Icon in the task bar
  • Make sure that your web server is running. For that, double-click on PWS icon to open the Personal Web Manager from which you can run and configure PWS. If your server isn't already on, press the Start button.
  • Test that PWS is working. Type into the address bar of your web browser http://localhost/. You should see the PWS documentation if it's working correctly.

How to Install IIS on Windows 2000

If you are running Windows 2000 on your computer you can install Microsoft's web server, Internet Information Server (IIS) for free from the Windows 2000  installation CD and configure it to run on your system by following the instructions below:

  • Place the Windows 2000 CD-Rom into your CD-Rom Drive
  • From your Start Button, go to Settings, and Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Windows Components found in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

  • Make sure that your Web server is running. The installation program has added a new IIS icon on your task bar. Click on the icon and press the Start button in the window that appears if your server isn't already on.
  • Test that IIS is working. Type into the address bar of your web browser http://localhost/. You should see the IIS documentation, if it's working correctly.

How to Install IIS on Windows XP Professional

If you are running Windows XP Professional on your computer, you can install Microsoft's web server, Internet Information Server 5.1 (IIS) for free from the Windows XP Pro installation CD and configure it to run on your system by following the instructions below:

  • From your Start Button, go to Settings, and Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Windows Components found in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
  • In the Windows Component Wizard check Internet Information Services, click next and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Make sure that your Web server is running. Its status can be checked by going into the Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, and double-click the IIS Manager icon
