ASP.Net SDK for Windows Me?

Hello, I'm jbosch(vosk) and I would like to learn how to use asp.net. In all the tutorials that I have find out in the net, there was a lot of programs but only for Windows NT or Windows XP. Yesterday I received a mail from Microsoft advertising about Microsoft ASP.Net SDK, a program for beginners in ASP to create the first codes and also to implement and/or help the exeperts asp writers. If someone want to take a look, the url is:
www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=9&tabid=47
or
www.asp.net/starterkits
The problem is that program only runs on Windows XP or 2000. I'm using Windows Me, so I'm afraid to damage my pc if I install that program. Someone knows a program like that to run on Windows Me? Or can I use that NT/2000 program on my Me?
Thank's.

The .NET Framework SDK is made to run on the NT codebase, so it can *only* be run on a Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP OS; it cannot be run on the 95 codebase, which includes Windows ME.  The only thing that can be installed on Windows ME is a .NET redistributable that allows the OS to interact with .NET applications, but not develop them.  So, if you are looking to develop .NET applications on your machine, you are going to need to upgrade your OS, because you will not find a .NET development environment or tool that operates on Windows ME.  Also, if you want to upgrade to Windows XP (and you should), you MUST upgrade to Windows XP Professional to develop ASP.NET applications; the Home version does not support the SDK.  After upgrading, you should then download the ASP.NET Web Matrix development environment from http://www.asp.net to get going, since it is free and is actually a very good tool for the ASP.NET newbie.

And another thing...I would not suggest or recommend installing any .NET Framework SDKs on your Windows ME machine.  Here is the official word from the MSDN site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dndotnet/html/framewkwinsupp.asp

Notice that the major difference between what the OSs can handle is the ASP.NET SDK, with only Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional supported.  I run Windows XP Professional, and I absolutely love it.  Windows ME was probably one of the worst OSs that MS released.  You will not be disappointed with an upgrade to WinXP Pro.

Thank's a lot for your good explanation. Surely I will update my OS to Windows XP Professional, because that also will open another new doors besides the net applications.
Thank you.
