Active Server - How do I host ASP or ASP.NET Web sites using Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition?

The short answer is: You don't. Microsoft doesn't provide or support IIS with the Home Edition of Windows XP, and although there are some posted workarounds to getting IIS installed and running with XP Home, we can't endorse or recommend them. The best solution is to upgrade XP Home Edition to XP Professional. It isn't expensive, and you won't run the risk of breaking something in an effort to force XP Home Edition to do something Microsoft hasn't designed it to do.
