WindowsXP Home/Prof

Hello,

Exist any restrictions when I build dotnet applications under Windows XP
home and not under under Windows XP Prof.?

No, assuming you're not using the PC as a server. They are the same
operating system. XP Home lacks some server features.

Home edition doesn't have IIS so you would have to host your pages on a
server that does.
You can download WebMatrix from the microsoft site. This has software that
can set up a "mini web server" but I've found that it doesn't support all
features.

You can just use it. Dot.Net Matrix contains a little webserver...

The statement Microsoft makes about that you need to use XP Pro or
2k/2k3 to install the .NET SDK is not true, i managed to install it on
my XP home laptop and it worked without errors.

I don't know if Visual Studio is able to run on HOME, but Borland C#
builder will work... And if none work, you can have a look at MONO.

Mind to share where they made such a statement? The never made the
distinction between Home/Prof as far as the SDK goes.

Nick,

Only when you want to develop application for a webserver using IIS and/or
ASPNet while using your own workstation.

I answered this to make it not OT however to tell you that I was missing a
while your forever given answers on this question. In past I liked them
more. (I know you grew up)

(And I shall not show them in this thread)

I have read so at the dutch microsoft page, but searching again i
cannot find it. But it stated: "Windows 2000, Windows 2003 or Windows
XP Proffesional" as system requirements....

But i just gave it a try, and it worked :)

Strange maybe can you translate this. In my opinion is there stated
something else.
(Not for Willy, he speaks Dutch). With your statement you bring in my
opinion the Benelux people from Microsoft in discredit.

e.. Windows Millennium (Windows Me)
f.. Windows 98
g.. Microsoft Windows NT® 4.0 (Service Pack 6a vereist)
h.. Windows 95 (met Microsoft Visual C++® .NET)
¹ Beperkte functionaliteit. U kunt in Visual Studio .NET 2003 geen

² ASP.NET-webtoepassingen en -XML-webservices kunnen alleen worden

For Alfred (and others) when he does not understand it (what I not assume)
here is stated as already told in the answers.

The answer became maybe upside down because I was answering to Nick.

You cannot use it to develop ASPNET pages, however accoording to the answer
from Nick, I assume that you can use it maybe to create HTML pages using the
WebMatrix (I really don't know that).

When you use Visual Studio Net to develop a web application, than it creates
first a complete virtual directory in IIS and uses that to develop.

For an ASPNet application it needs a server that has as well Net installed
which interacts with IIS and all proper debugging parts. As far as I know
does the WebMatrix that not.

Rinze,

Het is voor anderen soms moeilijk te begrijpen, maar ik schrijf niet altijd
wat ik bedoel. Soms bedoel ik heel iets anders dan wat ik letterlijk
schrijf.

Misschien mijn Amsterdamse (Jordanese) achtergrond.

Rinze,

En als je dit weet, begrijp je misschien dat ik geirriteerd raak van iemand.

Voor mij toont iemand dat ze sommige woorden niet goed begrijpt.

mmmm maybe i am wrong, but i thought i have read it. Could be on
another site then microsoft (could be borland).

But the mail target of the discussion is whether the topicstarter can
use .NET on XP Home

Jul 21 '05 #16
You can develop .net applications on any supported .net OS which includes XP
Home. So if you had a copy of VB.net on your PC you can develop and use a
vb.net application without any problems as far as I'm aware.
The only problem with developing a .net web page using asp.net is that you
wont be able to test it as XP home doesn't have IIS. Yes a webserver is
created with WebMatrix but I have found this to have problems with some
items. For example Validation controls seem to stop teh page posting back
wehn running through WebMatrix.
