No.  IIS 5.1 is what is available to XP.  IIS is locked to the version of the OS.  

IIS 5.0 = Windows 2000
IIS 5.1 = Windows XP
IIS 6.0 = Windows 2003
IIS 7.0 = Windows 2008/Vista
IIS 7.5 = Windows 2008 R2/Win7

Put another way, the only way to "upgrade" IIS is to upgrade/migrate the operating system

If you need 2003, you might want to consider getting a virtual server from an online provider.  Fees vary but can be as low as $30 per month.

You can
Windows XP Pro 64 bit comes with IIS 6.

You can install IIS on XP by that administrators can remotely manage an IIS 6.0 or IIS7 server from a Windows XP Professional workstation.

You can also run WAMP http://www.wampserver.com/en/

This is complete webserver using Apache, MySql and PHP

Or you can use XAMPP http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

In this the following programs are used:

  • Apache 2.2.14 (IPv6 enabled) + OpenSSL 0.9.8l
  • MySQL 5.1.41 + PBXT engine
  • PHP 5.3.1
  • phpMyAdmin 3.2.4
  • Perl 5.10.1
  • FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.33
  • Mercury Mail Transport System 4.72
Both programs are free for use.

Why delete with no refund?  Wasn't the question answered?  I thought I answered it in the first two comments.

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by leew (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26582962.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
 
Thank you,
