Installing IIS on XP Home

Although it’s a hack, I just figured out how to install IIS on XP Home. With the help of these two urls.

http://www.iis-resources.com/modules/AMS/article.php?storyid=48

and

http://www.webthang.co.uk/tuts/tuts_server/iis_xph/pippo_xp.asp

I did hit two problems, one was that it came up with an error "The Specified Module Could not be found" – This is fioxed by opening the IIS snap in, properties > Directory Security > Anonymous access > edit > then uncheck "Allow IIS to control password".

Then, to install .NET, I used aspnet_regiis.exe -i

As an experiment, I tried to get .NET beta 2 to install aswell,but I got this error in the event log

Exception: System.NullReferenceException

Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

StackTrace: at System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironment.Initialize(ApplicationManager appManager, IApplicationHost appHost, IConfigMapPathFactory configMapPathFactory, HostingEnvironmentParameters hostingParameters)

at System.Web.Hosting.ApplicationManager.CreateAppDomainWithHostingEnvironment(String appId, IApplicationHost appHost, HostingEnvironmentParameters hostingParameters)

at System.Web.Hosting.ApplicationManager.CreateAppDomainWithHostingEnvironmentAndReportErrors(String appId, IApplicationHost appHost, HostingEnvironmentParameters hostingParameters).
