Hi Experts,

I have written a few ASP webs and now might like to learn ASP.Net. Before that, I would like to know:

1. Do I need to install something in my Windows98 so that I can use PWS to test the ASP.Net pages? I cannot remember what is that.
2. Are there great differences between ASP and ASP.Net? It means is it diffecult for me to learn ASP.Net :-)
3. ASP.Net includes the MD5 one way encryption function?

1. Yes, you'll have to install .NET Framework. It can be downloaded from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4fe5bdb5-c7a7-4505-9927-2213868a325b&DisplayLang=en

It's requirements include also Windows 2000 Professional (SP 2 recommended) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Server (SP 2 recommended) or Microsoft Windows XP Professional and IIS.

This is the minimum to develop ASP.NET applications, but in order to achieve more it's advised to install the whole Visual Studio.NET.

2. There are differences between ASP and ASP.NET in the way we design and implement the application. There are different files for the user interface and the code in ASP.NET. But I hope it won't be difficult to learn it.

3. Yes, there is MD5 class in .NET Framework, which represents the abstract class from which all implementations of the MD5 hash algorithm inherit. More information can be found at:

Thanks a lot.

Only thing you didn't answer is:
Can I develop ASP.Net under Windows98 + PWS ?
