Hi, I bought a laptop with XP Media Center.  I want to be able to run IIS so that I can test some .asp pages.  I've added the IIS windows component but the IIS main page does not load.  ASP pages will not run.

Can anyone tell me if I can run IIS on this edition? or will I need to install XP Pro

Thanks!

Hi,

You can install IIS on Windows Media Center, but its better to have it in XP Pro. If u have an option to go for XP; i would say go for it.

I would also, but I would rather not reinstall the operating system on the laptop if I do not have to. ;-)

Under the website properties, home directory, you have "Scripts Only" for execute?  Do your apps use parent paths?  go into the configuration and make sure they are enabled.

Dont forget to set your default document.

I have a media center edition 2005 here running on my tv with iis.
