I don't have IIS and I Have XP Home. I tryed to workaround on 15seconds.com but it didn't work for me I still can't install IIS but I have Visual Studio 2005. Can I somehow use it to test asp pages?

Also I would like to test a asp page that sends mail. How can I test it?

I am currently using babyweb asp server( a alternative) but the mail feature provided by CDONTS doesn't seem to work and I have no idea how to setup CDONTS for non-IIS web servers.

Is there any way to make apache work with asp and send mail from asp?

I think IIS is required for ASP to work

While Microsoft doesn't recommend it, IIS can be run from Win XP Home. Just do a Google search on "XP HOME IIS" The articles will tell you how to make it run on XP Home. I did this on my laptop and it works fine


To run ASP on Apache
I know you need to install Mod_AspDotNet. Beyond that I have not done this. I couldn't tell you how it will work with Visual Studio though

a Google search for "asp.net on apache server" lists quite a number of pages where this is discussed.

Where did you get your IIS files from? a Win 2000 disk or a Win XP Pro disk?

In order for this to work you need to get the needed files from a Win 2k disk. For some reason getting them from a Win XP Pro disk doesn't work.

Another option is the Cassini sample web server (http://www.asp.net/projects/cassini/download/).

Also I just noticed that you mentioned CDONTS (Collaboration Data Objects for NTS) You do know that CDONTS has been depricated don't you? While it was also available for use on W2K, IT was NOT included in Win XP nor in Win 2003 Server. Have you tried using CDOSYS?

BabyWebServer works fine with CDO, although with XP Home you don't have any settings for SMTP.


There are plenty of SMTP servers available that give you more control than IIS SMTP.
I like MailEnable (http://www.mailenable.com/). I have also used pegasus mercury (http://www.pmail.com/downloads_maine_t.htm)and argosoft (http://www.argosoft.com/rootpages/MailServer/Default.aspx)
