It seems like a really obvious thing to be able to do but I'm not managing to do it.

How do I set up ASP on my local machine to save time previewing files. Note I can't find the Windows CD. I'm using XP Professional.

Thanks for any advise. I have tried to find a Download on the Microsoft site but I didn't get very far.

Peace

Dog,

You really need to install it from Windows XP cd rom as I don't think it's available at MSDN.

If you do find your cd follow the instructions seen in the link and it will work...

Oh, I forgot to add, you MUST disable any apache servers whilst using IIS. You can switch between both but only one must be used at any one time to avoid conflicts.

Good luck
