Hi and thanks

I am just trying (for the first time) to learn myself ASP.NET.
I have Windows 8.1 and I am guessing I first need to install IIS on that machine
I have looked up on how to enable IIS on my maching by going into:
"Turn Windows features on or off" and selecting:
"Internet Information services" Yet:
 After I enable, I try the LocalHost In the IE and it just shows a blank website,
Also I noticed a IIS manager that I have on the machine but I don't know what to do with that as well.
So I am guessing that I need:
IIS so that I can host ASP.NET4.5 and Visual Studios (like 2008) installed.

I don't need any learning Tutorial's yet at this point, I have been learning from:
Part 1:

Part 2:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLyBE6rJdD4&list=PL6n9fhu94yhXQS_p1i-HLIftB9Y7Vnxlo
Part 3:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fn_08JLsrmY&list=PL6n9fhu94yhXQS_p1i-HLIftB9Y7Vnxlo

and so on.

I am at the point were I just need some kind of hands on..

Thank You for any help

If you are using Visual Studio to develop with then you can just use the internal web server that comes with it to run your asp.net web applications. This happens by default when you install Visual Studio, you have to configure it to use IIS.

I was going to delete this post, last night I found a free version:
VS Express 2013 for Web.

But a better question is:

What is all this ASP.Net4.5
IIS

that is listed and lets you enable
in:
"Turn Windows features on or off"
Within Windows 8.1

Yet it does not work
This lets a person think that all you have to do is enable and you already have this within Windows8.1

Without installing VS at all???

Thanks

That option enables asp.net 4.5 for IIS, so that it can host websites built using .net 4.5.
You can open IIS by using Internet Server Manager

That is what I do not understand,

I guess I am slow when it comes to what you just mentioned.

I did notice Internet Server Manager, but I thought that was some kind of remote hookup to some other web server like VPN would be.

Looks like I need to understand Internet Server Manager better and what it is used for.

So let me understand your comment:
Internet Server Manager is used for:
Only to host web applications (ASP.Net) in this case it is ASP.Net 4.5
And what is meant by: HOST
To reside ASP.NET Applications?

Internet Server Manager can be used to connect to remote IIS in a domain environment but also is used to connect to your local IIS installation.

Once you have developed a web site you can create a web site or use the default site that is already there in Internet Server Manager and point it to your source code and then you can access the website using internet explorer.

You could also make it available to the outside world once you have created a website in ISM but that is a whole different topic.

For your purposes in learning ASP.Net you don't really need to worry about IIS as you can use the internal web server that comes with Visual Studio to run and debug your web applications to make sure your code is working ok.
