  • User1608443550 posted

    Hi all,

    Its my first post here and want to know very basic steps before i start developing pages in asp.net.

    Currently I have:

    1.windows xp prof SP2

    2..Net framework 3.5 SP1

    Stuffs which I have downloaded:

    1..Net framework 4(client profile and extended) and installed

    Stuffs which I am confused about:

    1.Currently I have no IIS installed.So which version of IIS i should download.Also I would like to install IIS in XP pro SP2 without help of CD.

    2.After I install IIS how can I configure IIS server to run each site/folder.Like http://localhost/testdotnet/test.aspx

    3.Which code editor will be best.I heard about microsoft visual studio.Is it available for free download?Also if I get the visual studio for free then how can I define sites so that it makes a bridge between visual studio and physical folder under IIS

    Please suggest,

    Many thanks,

    Raj

    How about this one http://www.asp.net/downloads/

    is it good?

    The Web Platform Installer requires a live internet connection which means it'll download the software & install & probably delete the source. It's bad for me. I like to have an offline copy of most of my setups. Tongue out

    Although, answer to your question is Yes. It does have all the requisite components that are needed to develop & deploy a small scale ASP.Net website.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Windows XP comes with IIS 6 on the DISC. So you will need to have the CD or atleast the disk image in order to install.

    2.After I install IIS how can I configure IIS server to run each site/folder.Like http://localhost/testdotnet/test.aspx

    Read here.

    3.Which code editor will be best.I heard about microsoft visual studio.Is it available for free download?Also if I get the visual studio for free then how can I define sites so that it makes a bridge between visual studio and physical folder under IIS

    You can develop your website using the Visual Web Developer that is available for free download. You can then map your development folder as a virtual directory on IIS as mentioned in the link above.

    Hope that answers your queries.

    Hi Sanjit,

    Many thanks for your suggestion.I was looking for a bundle tool here http://www.asp.net/downloads/

    So it installs everything needed to develop asp.net sites.In this case perhaps we dont need to install the stuffs individually.

    Anyway but i want to follow manual process i mean installing each stuff individually.

    Also I have seen in this site a guy mentioned about installing IIS without help of a cd.

    http://ezinearticles.com/?How-to-Install-IIS-on-Windows-XP-SP2-Without-the-CD&id=416853

    Now do you recommend to download http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=32c54c37-7530-4fc0-bd20-177a3e5330b7&displaylang=en IIS 7 version and do the direct installation instead of going to control panel and add components etc etc.

    or its better to install IIS using that method which that guy has described in ezinearticles.com.

    Thanks,

    Raj

    I had almost a similar thing in mind when I mentioned using the Virtual/Disk Images. If you have the source as folders why not turn it into an image & mount it to install IIS. That will save you the overhead of mapping the i386 folder yourself.

    Now do you recommend to download http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=32c54c37-7530-4fc0-bd20-177a3e5330b7&displaylang=en IIS 7 version and do the direct installation instead of going to control panel and add components etc etc.

    Let me tell you that the component available on the Link mentioned above is an IIS 7 MANAGER and not exactly IIS 7 web server. The utility can be used to manage IIS 7 servers using a Win XP box. IIS is usually bound with the OS and cannot be installed or uninstalled. It's a feature that needs to be turned on or turned off. So in your case I guess you are stuck with IIS 6 Tongue out unless you have plans to upgrade to Win Vista ,Win 7 or Win Server 2008 (they come with IIS 7).

    What Errors?

    sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 express

    Express edition versions are the ones that are available for free (legally).  So if you are looking to learn or use it in a small sized firm SQL Server 2008 Express edition is recommended. Also you can install any other completely free RDMBS like MySQL if you are not specifically looking for SQL Server 2008.

    I got ntlm authentication from firefox and IE...so I have added localhost in both browser as trusted site and then I was able to run http://localhost/ and no window authentication appeared.

    But after that while i was trying to install sqlserver 2008 express I got a headache.. Laughing

    I had to download xp sp3 and then I installed windows powershell 2.0 and now I am going to install sqlserver....I don't want to use  mysql with aspx...may be I will be getting more errors during the development...so my choice was php with mysql and aspx with sqlserver...

    I will let you know about the installation of sqlserver 2008.. Tongue out
