    ASP start where?

    I want to learn ASP. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP1a. Which software/complier do I need to run ASP? Is there any sites can I download?

    Lightbulb XP Pro. Should Have ...

    I am assuming you mean Active Server Pages. WindowsXP Professional should allow you to install MS Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0. IIS 5.0 allows you to run ASP scripts if you allow it. I am not sure about WinXP, but I have Win2000, and here's how you might do it:

    Click "Start"
    Go to "Control Panel"
    Open "Add/Remove Programs"
    Select "Add/Remove Windows Components"

    Make sure "Internet Information Services" is checked, and follow the rest of the instructions. You can google-search for "Configure IIS ASP" for help setting up the ASP script ability. You can also run Perl/CGI on IIS 5.0. Just the other night I added Perl/CGI capability to my IIS.

    I hope this information helps you out.

    I remember when I learnt ASP I used ... You might want to sign up at as well because they have some of the very best ASP deveopers there.

    You have a choice between Javascript and VBScript when it comes to ASP, I would recommend vbs for it..

    You don't have to use ASP just because you're on a win box, I'm running apache with php on my win xp box right now.
