Install IIS on Win2kPro with .NET Support
Can I do it?

 5:53 pm on Jul 14, 2004 (gmt 0)

I'm just curious, can I use a Win2k Pro machine to run a small IIS server that supports .NET pages?

I just need it for a test/dev box, not production...
I'm just a little unsure if 2kPro will run IIS w/ .NET support.

Yes, you can do this.

Ok...now what do I need to set this up.

(I'm a linux server guy, not a windows server guy.)

Where do I get IIS, and the .NET "add-ons" for the server?

Is IIS included on my 2kPro CD?

For IIS, go to control panel->add/remove programs->add/remove windows components

select IIS, it should add automatically (you may need your CD)

For .NET framework, go to:

you'll probably want the SDK if youare going to do dev work.

For dev work I'll probably just buy one of the languages (ie C#, or VB) since I don't need the entire studio and it's ALOT cheaper...I just have to be able to do a little .NET work for some clients on occasion.

If you are developing ASP.net try :


It's a free! :)

Very interesting...

Make sure to install IIS first, before you install the dotnet framework on the first time around. After that, if you ever uninstall the IIS and reinstall you must run a utility called dotnetfx.exe after you reinstall the IIS. The utility comes with the dotnet framework download.

If you install IIS after you have installed the .NET Framework, then you need to run a utility called aspnet_regiis, not dotnetfx. You install it by doing:

c:\windows directory\Microsoft .NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis -i

This modifies the IIS metabase to know about .NET. If you install dotnetfx, that actually just reinstalls the .NET framework, which is unnecessary. The v1.1.4322 in the path above should be replaced by the highest version number you have installed of the framework.

aspnet_regiis can be run at any time to fix the IIS metabase to know about .NET. There is no harm in running it multiple times.

Thanks, Xoc. I didn't know that. I always used dotnetfx. That's what the MS KB told me to do.
