YOu just need to get PERL for windows... Just search the internet for "PERL Windows" and it will giveyou a list of sites you can DL it free...

You also need to install Microsoft's Personal Web server which is free from Microsoft... http://www.microsoft.com/iis/.

A limited version comes with Front page....
