Windows XP and IIS


I'm using Windows XP home Edition, the problem is I need to PWS or IIS to set my offline site.

Previously I was using Win 98 with PWS.

Is there any third party(free) that can work as IIS in Win. XP home Edition. ?

Thanks & Regards

Unfortunately IIS is not available with home edition. You should go for "XP Professional"

Don't see any reason that Apache wouldn't work on XP home although I haven't tried it myself. You will need Service Pack 1 thought.

You can download a binary from any of the mirror sites like:

In this directory is a README.html with some info about XP, etc.

Good luck,
