Requirements for Working with ASP.NET
Web Forms pages have dependencies on technologies other than just the .NET Framework. For starters, you must be running IIS. (If the server is running Microsoft Windows NT 4, you need to have IIS version 4 or later.) Ideally, you’ll have IIS running on your own computer. You can use IIS on another machine, but you’ll need administrative privileges on that computer and read/write access to the Inetpub directory and its subdirectories. In either case, the computer running IIS must also have the .NET Framework installed so that IIS can call ASP.NET as needed. And the server must have Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions installed.
Because we’ll be looking at data access as well, you’ll also need access to a database such as the Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Access database. (Again, ideally this database will be installed on your own computer.)
