Prerequisites for server machine when developing ASP.Net appps


I have to redevelop my Access applications using Visual Studio 2013, .Net framework 4.0, C# and ASP.Net. The apps will run from a Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5. What are the requirements on the Windows Server 2008 machine for these apps to run ? Apart from IIS, what must be installed / present on this server machine ? Any licenses needed ?

Thanks for help

For the server, I don't think you need any license. Obviously the only one prerequisite for running applications is the appropiate version of .Net Framework installed on the server. With the .Net Framework and IIS you're ready to run applications, as seen on the "Additional Information" section of the .Net Framework 4.0 Microsoft Download.

Hope that helps.

If you are planning on sticking with Access then you will also need to make sure you have the latest version of MDAC installed so that you will have the approriate ODBC/OLEDB (delete as appropriate!) drivers available.

Thanks for the info, Luis, you get the points

Carl, I do not plan to stick with Access after the migration.
