If I want to use IIS, or PWS to develop ASP sites on my home machine, could I get XP Home?  Or do I need to use XP Pro?   Can I install IIS, or PWS on the Home version?  

What are the advantages of pro vs home?

Get IIS working in XP Home  
From: Richard Sandoz
Date Posted: 1/8/2002 6:37:00 PM

General HOWTO for running IIS in Windows XP Home Edition.

by Richard Sandoz - Certified Java Programmer

(1) locate and edit the file C:\WINDOWS\INF\SYSOC.INF

(2) locate a section called [Components]

(3) find a line like this:
    iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,hide,7

(4) change it to this (the iis cab in the i386 xp home folder looks to
be nothing)
    iis=iis2.dll,OcEntry,iis2.inf,,7
   
(some sort of ms caching thing keeps sticking back iis.dll when I try
to nuke it. quickly renaming and making hidden dir called iis.dll
seems to thwart, but not worth it, so iis2.dll is good enough)

(5) I grabbed the iis.dl_ and iis.in_ from win2k advanced server cd.

I would guess similar techniques would work from W98, FP, etc.
Use "EXPAND IIS.DL_ IIS2.DLL" from a command prompt
Same for IIS2.INF, place IIS2.INF in C:\WINDOWS\INF and IIS2.DLL in
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SETUP

(6) Now when I did "add windows programs" from the control panel's add
new programs,

I had IIS options and I could even check em off. yippee - could not
check em off from my xppro cd :(((

I just went with the defaulted ones though (all i needed was iis web
server)

(7) It will prompt you for files. Get em from MS XP Home CDs, Adv
Server CDs, C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\INETSRV, C:\WINDOWS\I386, etc. (It will
tell you the file it needs, you just need to have a searcher going,
probably the CDs will have all you need)

(8) You can get to your IIS from Control Panel's Administrative
Programs.
I stuck in an index.html file and reconfigure IIS to work like this.
No go :(((
I right clicked on my inetpub folder and did something with shared
folders. No go :(((
I looked at the event viewer and saw the error of my ways.
Go to IIS and goto Directory Security tab and click Edit button and
Browse for the user setup on my laptop.

(9) Yippee, hello world from http://localhost
   
I won't support this solution unless paid to. I am an out of work
developer looking for work.

I bought a Toshiba 5005 laptop which came with XP home.
I then bought Win XP Professional.
I have bunches of CDs from when I was a MSDN subscriber.
From a general search on the internet I found contradictions.

Microsoft says you need professional XP to do IIS period.
q310090 was yanked from their site which had the "workaround" for
this.

When I tried to setup XP upgrade to pro, my laptop rebooted and hung
on an xp logo with an animated graphic.
I have verified this to be the case with others as well. Upgrading to
xp pro isn't an option for this laptop.

I tried copying the files from my Win98 CD, although after I did
everything as explained below, I was unable to select the check-boxes,
even though the entrys showed up in Add/Remove Windows Components. Do
you have any idea as to why they were unselectable?

I had the same problem from the XP Pro CD I bought. Wound up bringing
it back to the store. It would not do the upgrade option on my
laptop. I am guessing that maybe tweaking the contents of the iis.inf
might make it work though. I see all kind of textual entries in the
file that seem to do different install functionality depending on what
version of windows you are installing to.

Well, I just tried this using the Win 98 CD and it will not work,
appears you must have version 5 of iis.

Okay...so I'm following along here...and yup, the IIS box is now
there...I check same...and then it asks for files.

Uhhh...my XPHome is on a Dell laptop...all I got with it is the Dell CD
with XPHome on it...and no, none of the files are there.

So I ran a Search...and found convlog.exe okay...but couldn't find
infoctrs.dll or admexs.dll...and stopped there.

Anyone know how I can get those ones AND whatever comes next in the
series? Cause I'm at a loss here...

Did you check c:\windows\i386 ?
The setup is lloking for infoctrs.dll. This means that it want
infoctrs.dll or infoctrs.dl_ (the compressed file) either are good for
the setup.
I found mine in c:\windows\i386 in a compressed fashion. The setup will
uncompress it for you.

Sigh...
Okay...I got all the files installed, restarted, and lo and behold...IIS
is there!

Course, it's not working????

Went to my asp editor, did a simple "the time is <%=time%> and it fails
to show up...all I get is the English....

Anyone here?

I've configured it EXACTLY like the w2k box that I normally run my asp
dev thru...and I've checked the asp editor for any variances too...nada.

So...what am I missing under XP Home?

I'm currently creating my website with just that (using VBScript/ASP,
etc) and it all works just fine.
The problem I had when I wanted to access localhost at first is that the
IIS_USER didn't exist ... you can either create one or use your normal
login (depending on the required safety)

So far, I've ran a tomcat in iis, jsp app, an ecommerce site with
about 100 or so ASP files, which do stuff like communicate with COM
objects (CDONTS, smtpmail, sendmail, some custom ones I wrote), SQL
Server, etc, run some ISAPI apps (I wrote a while back), use aspmail,
asphttp, sure-pay xml thing, Oracle. All seems to work fine. It is
somewhat of a pain to deal with the NT security model via XP, but
other than that, no problems.

I got it installed ok - but now I get an error 80074002 when I attempt

box(es) in Add/Remove Components.

Here what i did:
1) changed (the instructed) sysoc file
2) ran (the instructed) expand... command from the run prompt
3) moved iis2.dll and iis2.inf to the correct directories,
restarted the computer, double checked everything :) and still no IIS
boxes...

What am i missing???

Thanks,

alex

I followed steps 1 to 7 with no problems. I have a problem in
step 8. When I open IIS in the control panel's administrative programs,
I don't see the directory security tab. When I try to connect to localhost
server, a message tells me that there are no services to manage.

Anyone can help me?
Thanks.

Don't select smtp server (or whatever the mail server option is) when
installing IIS - that is the only item I did not select (after getting
the same error below) and I was able to install everything from
win2kpro + xp home, and it works fine.

Except for one bizarre effect - some of my folders are named after the
domains ('mydomain.com', 'myotherdomain.org', etc.) - anything other
than the .com work just fine - i can browse directories and view html
files, etc; but with the .com folders, I can browse directories but
once I click on an html file, I get a 'HTTP 403.1 Forbidden: Execute
Access Forbidden', even though I have clearly specified execute access
for all of these folders. Renaming (to '_com' for example) does take
care of the problem, but does anyone have any ideas why happens?

open iis console through administrative tools, right click on the
'default web site' in left frame, select 'properties', a dialog box
appears with 9 tabs, and 'directory security' is one of them - click
the edit button and find the user you want to use - ones own login
seems to be the easiest (that's what I did anyway) but I am unsure if
there might be some security issues involved.

Do u have anything running that uses ms access? I set up IIS to
impersonate the owner account. i have an asp that uses access - when I
go to access it gives me the famous "file opened exclusively or no
permissions". The problem could be that the account iis impersonates
doesn't have write permissions, however owner should have all
permissions, no? I can see in the event viewer that there is a
security failure coming from IIS trying to login as owner. I tried to
match passwords (owner doesn't have one) thru iis but it doesn't seem
to work unless I put in the iis_user password. Any ideas?

are "administerable services". I am very new to XP (2 days) and need

You MUST have a Windows 2000 CD to get the two files from. You will
probably not find these files on the web. If you cannot get a hold of a
Windows 2000 CD, you might as well go buy XP Professional Edition.

Re: Get IIS working in XP Home  
From: Dizzave
Date Posted: 4/17/2002 1:53:00 AM

Some general coments about installing IIS 5.0 from Win2k Pro.
1. It works. It took me a while, and I tried fidgeting around trying
to force an install of IIS from the XP Professional CD (borrowed from
a friend) and after trying for 2 hours (unsuccessfully) i uninstalled,
and tried exactly as the directions state.
2. You can install the SMTP service, if you copy the the files from
Win2k Pro CD. The files you need are ims.in_ and imsinsnt.dl_. Extract
them and rename it to ims2.inf and put it in c:\windows\inf\. You also
must copy imsinsnt.dll (rename from cd to imsinsnt2.dll) to the
c:\windows\system32\setup directory. Then, change sysoc.inf file, just
the same as iis, to ims2.inf instead of ims.inf. The SMTP service and
the rest of IIS are separate packages. (internet information
server<iis> and internet mail server <ims>)
3. Since XP Home is insecure already, all you have to do to get the
web pages to view correctly is uncheck the box in the directory
security->edit-> Then under Anonymous Access click edit->uncheck
'Allow IIS to control password' and make the password blank. Since XP
doesn't user security tab in computer management, the accounts cannot
be managed by other programs, and can only be managed by hand. The
account iusr_<your computer name here> is created by setup, and you
can't edit it. It will be deleted upon uninstall, but you can't
manually manage that account. You have to do this for each FTP, SMTP,
and WWW separately.

Should work just fine from there on out! I need to download the latest
version of PHP and PERL so I can see if they work. There's no reason
why they shouldn't, that I can think of. Just make sure, that if
you're running IIS 5.0 on a home machine, that you have a firewall
setup, so that people can't create sessions to your computer, and
access your shares. They can use the username iusr_<computer name> to
log on to your computer.

This is great.

Now do any of you clever people have any tips on getting the FULL BLOWN
IIS working on XP Pro (or Win2K Pro for that matter)????

The real issue is that I need to be able to host multiple webs (on
multiple IPs) on my dear Dell development notebook.

So far I've tried a trick similar to Mr Sandoz's, swapping the IIS files
that come with XPPro with those from W2K-AS. No joy.

I would imagine it needs some tweaking of the .inf? Is there anyone out
there wise to this?

Much appreciated.

So install a Server OS. I use server operating systems on my development
boxes, mainly for that reason - my dev and deployment servers are apples,
not mixed fruits.

Mixed nuts is more appropriate in this small office.

Actually, I think it's quite the opposite. Most people who are developers
should be using Pro anyway. And those who don't *NEED* IIS can actually
*save* money by buying home instead.

I would say the people more to blame are the PC manufacturers, since they
bundle the Home version with virtually every PC they sell... since it saves
money on their end.

the files during the install, but that took only a few extra minutes,
and beat giving MS $100 of my hard-earned money for a feature that ought
to already be included.

A Pro and a Home version ... money-grubbing jerks ...

It should be the other way around -- those features should be included
in a single version of your OS (see OS X), and they can be
activated/de-activated by the user as needed.

Unfortunately, this would mean less money for MS, since they get to
charge you $100 more, even if all you need is one component (in my case,
IIS).

For MS to not even include PWS in XP Home is a shame.

One problem I do have using this solution is when I utilise the File
System Object to read a file off the file system - seems to lock the IIS
process up so I have to go into the Task Manager and End Task the
inetinfo.exe process and restart IIS. When I look in the event log, it
gives an error something like: COMPUTERNAME\username password incorrect
or not found. Everything else works just fine other than using the FSO -
anyone else have a similar problem, and if so, how did you get around

You're not serious?

XP Home is for HOME users. why would your granny want IIS? Remember Code
Red? there were horror stories from all sorts of places about home users
having IIS without even knowing what it was, or from buying a machine
with it pre-installed. They didn't know about patching, they didn't know
about locking down against vulnerabilities. Code Red went like wildfire
through these systems because these people did not want or need a
webserver and all the attendant security risks that go with it. Many
cable ISPs were FORCED to block port 80 because of these dummies,
preventing those users who had webservers running and patched from using
the damn things. Then came Nimda, more of the same. You cannot seriously
believe that dropping home support for IIS is a bad thing??

If you want to priogram, buy a programmers OS.

It would be nice if they at least gave you the choice to install IIS on
XP home if you wanted. Many developers like myself probably ended up
buying a machine with XP Home thinking it was something you could
install later (like PWS under 95/98) without realising there was NO way
to do it short of this hack. Had I known this at the time, I would have
bought XP Pro. But now I have XP Home, I don't want the hassle of having
to reinstal EVERYTHING because there is no way to install IIS. This
solution has worked out geat for me. Thanks to the originator of this
thread for sharing this ingenious work around.

The difference in the price point is because they don't have to support
Pro-only features like IIS.

And you do have the choice, it's just not supported (like many other things
you can do to your machine).

It's not an undocumented omission. and no, it wouldn't be nice. I don't
want Code Red and Nimda happening again. Do you know how much trouble
unpatched and unrequired installations of IIS caused???

I'm only using my PC for learning. Why would I spend an extra $100?
How come WinME have PWS?

Why else would MS be calling it a PWS (PERSONAL web server) anyway if
it's not for personal use?

To avoid the hassle of installing unsupported features yourself, and getting
support for them if you need it.

> How come WinME have PWS?

Because WinME was released before CodeRed and NIMDA crippled half the web
servers on personal machines, many of which were run by home users who had
no idea what a web server was!

> Why else would MS be calling it a PWS (PERSONAL web server) anyway if

Actually, it's not called PWS anymore, it's called IIS in all variations.
Perhaps related to that very same point.

Anyway, I don't know why you're arguing in here with non-Microsoft people,
who can only justify what we see and know, and who definitely have no power
to change Microsoft's mind. I think it's pretty much settled, XP Home
doesn't come with IIS or PWS, period. Maybe you should raise your beef(s)
directly with Microsoft.

IIS5.0 is not PWS. PWS is an 'obsolete' product. As for educational use
being the same as prodfessional use, why, if you're learning to program,
would you expect to learn on different equipment to a professional? And
furthermore, PWS is UNSUPPORTED under windows ME - the phase-out of this
product has been uderway for some time. The only way to install PWS on
ME is with some creative work-rounds.

There is no way around it - IIS is not supported under XP Home and no
amount of complaining is going to change it.

i installed iis onto my xp home laptop from a friend's xp pro cd. it

IIS manager isnt in administrative tools, only pws manager is, and when
i try to manually execute it i get a message that the snap-in could not
be created. when i try to run pws, it just does nothing. i even tried
installing pws from nt 4.0 option pack over iis, and that doesnt work
either. i am really screwed now--i just need something to run a demo
(that will allow coldfusion to run, and act like iis -- i.e.
c:\inetpub\wwwroot and other fun iis stuff) and nothing seems to be
working.

any suggestions?

Hello,
Well first of all just to mention that the two files iis2.inf and
iis2.dll are not enough for the installation and you need all the i386
folder from windows 2000 advance server. With out this you cannot
install the files.

Second do not install the front page 2000  server extensions so untick.
You can now tick the rest and install.

Third, after you install the files you need to download the microsoft
front page server extensions 2002 from microsoft it is free. Then
execute the file.

Now, you can go to add remove and install the last file which is front
page 2002 server extensions.

Well I hope that this helps.

Hey, first off let me say you are a GOD-SEND!

I'm a Network/Web Administrator for a small vitamin/supplement company
and need ASP support to build work related websites,

My company just bought me a Fujitsu Lifebook 2111, but it only has Win
XP Home unfortunately... Since I don't want to loose the Fujitsu tools,
I tried out your patch for IIS, and it worked beutifully!!! Just like
you say, however, I noticed in the Event Viewer 1 small error, (or mabye
not that small) It says, in the Application Log:


  Type     Source    Category Event Computer
Warning:   Userenv   None      1517   System

Windows saved user ARKADIA2\Owner registry while an application or
service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by
the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded
when it is no longer in use.

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try
configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or
NetworkService account.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


Now, I'm guessing that I am slowly but surely loosing a bit of memory
from running this 'hack'... I've tried a number of different accounts,
including the MS Visual Studio .NET account 'SQLDebugger' the account my
Win2k machine uses 'IUSR_ARKADIA2' (Computer name is Arkadia2), and even
creating a new user, with limited access just for IIS, called
'IIS_ARKADIA2' none of these stopped the error.. I'm wondering if you,
or anyone else has noticed this, and if it is a real problem or
something I shouldn't bother woring about.

I appreciate your time very much so, as I'm desperate to get this
resolved and onto my programming, even if that means going through the
HELL it would 'cause to return this laptop and get the next step up..
and at this point I'm really not even sure that is possible.

Thank you very much for your time and help,

Re: Get IIS working in XP Home  
From: Roly Walter

My Windows XP Home came pre-installed so all I have are 3 installation
disks with .GHO files. Can I get into those? Do I have to buy Norton
Ghost? They also have a recovery.exe file on them, but I am wary of
running it in case it reformats everything.

Incidentally, when I try to install IIS without the Win disk, it only
asks me for ASP and HTML files...(well, until I got bored of clicking
cancel and continue the whole time) Do I really need the original disks?

Thanks

I followed the outline instructions and it works flawlessly. I used the
XP Home and 2000AS (That I purchased from Microsoft under the 120 day
trial package for around 10$US)CD's. I did try the XP Pro flavor, but
couldn't check the boxes. The 10$ solution was my preferred choice. Now
I can test my website before I publish them to the WWW. I do think that
microshaft should have included it with Home Edition, but that my
opinion. I don't believe that bragging about a new OS with go faster
stripes just to find out that features have been removed is honest
business policy. But microshaft is anything but honest. Look at 98,98SE,
and ME. These were merely bug patches. You don't see Apple pulling these
shadey tactics. Unless it's a massive complete code rewrite. MacOS you
usually have a complete list on the side of the box which lists all that
is included with the OS, and if it's not on the side of the box then
it's not included. If anything microshaft should have made it cheaper or
there should have been just one flavor of XP. 100$ per patch that
repairs all their previous mistakes is insane. Even more insane is the
people who fall pray to it and give them the money. Me included. All be
it microshaft is far from being an honest company. This is way off topic
and I'll get off my soapbox and continue with what I had originally
started to do, and that was "Thank you Richard for your helpfull insight
on installing IIS on Windows XP Home Edition".

I agree with your response, but what do you consider more illegal?
Giving him those 2 files which are useless without the 2000AS CD or the
Microsoft business tactics of charging 100$ for each release of Windows
OS that are mere bug patches from their previous mistakes. Or the
removal of features that were always included with previous releases. I
don't know why I'm replying except maybe to stimulate a reponse. Why do
we continue to pay for the fixes to microsoft's mistakes. Oh it's
illegal to do this or it's illegal to do that. HELLO! It should be
illegal to rip people off and at last I checked it is. Why is microsoft
aboce the law? Just food for thought.

Sure you didn't, the Crtl, C and V keys must be well worn off your keyboard by now, or at least covered by snow. :)

Well, now that we all know everything that's happening via intra-office email in CrazyOne's office...

Thanks.   I appreciate it.   If I'm forced to go with XP Home, it appears I can at least get IIS going with it.
