Installing IIS7 on Windows XP

Posted on 2008-10-24

I have a Windows XP development box with my Visual Studio 2008 on it.

I want to also install IIS7. Where can I get this download? I thought it should be on my VS2008 disk, but it evidentally is not. All I'm finding says it is for vista, so I need something that will install to XP.

I'd like to have IIS7 on my development box for testing etc.

We do own Windows Web Server 2008, which includes IIS7, but I don't know that that would work for an install on my XP box?

thanks!

Versions of IIS are specific to the operating system.  IIS7 is only available on Vista and Windows 2008 Server.

Best of luck,

harperse is correct - you cannot download IIS 7 and it cannot be installed on XP.  If you need it for development purposes, then I suggest using your Microsoft Developer Network Subscription to download Server 2008 and run 2008 (with IIS 7) in a virtual machine under XP.  Then you'll have it.
