Asp Pages?

P: n/a
I use WindowsXP on my standalone computer.

Is there any way to create Asp pages on my computer so I can open them with
Internet Explorer?

Thanks!

ASP is an IIS technology. If you have the Pro version of XP then you
can setup IIS (Internet Information Services) on it. Then you can
create ASP pages and IIS will process them. They are essentiallly text
documents so they can be created many different ways - even Notepad
will work. You might want to get a book on the subject before you get
too far. Here are some online resources...

Jim,

Thanks for the quick response!

I have the the Pro version of XP.

1. How do I setup IIS (Internet Information Services) on it?

2. Do I then just write the HTML/Asp code with Notepad?

3. Where do I save the HTML/Asp file to?

Thanks,

Lisa

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components

Only if you are a masochist. There is an editor that I like called
HTML-Kit.

3. Where do I save the HTML/Asp file to?
IIS setup will creat some folders ...

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\

Create your own folder within there to place the ASP pages in.

Thanks,

Lisa
You're welcome. But, since this is off-topic you really will be better
served in an IIS new group.

AND, I would really recomend a basic book. And, while classic ASP is
still quite functional, the newer ASP.Net is where the action is.
