Setting Up a Workstation for ASP.NET

Before you can make .NET pages, your computer must meet the following basic requirements.

  • Because .NET is a Microsoft product, it works only with the IIS server on Windows. The framework will be installed to its own directory, but you will still use the web root of IIS to serve your pages.

  • If you don’t have it already, you will need the Microsoft Data Access Components 2.6 or above installed. (Latest version as of this writing is 2.7; available at www.microsoft.com/mdac.) MDAC is a collection of files that enables ASP.NET to work together with your server and datasources. These include components for ODBC, OLE DB, and ADO technologies.

  • You need to install the .NET Framework or have access to a machine that has it installed. This is the program that actually runs the .NET part of the code. It is available as a download from Microsoft. Be warned: It is 131MB! (http://www.microsoft.com/net/)
