ASPX Development on Win98

By steven.mcfadyen ·
I am trying to learn MS's .net framework using a Windows 98 machine. I have installed MS Personal Web Server (which runs .asp pages fine). My problem is that I cannot run a .aspx page (using C#). Can anyone help me?

Have you downloaded the framework SDK (free from the MS site ... http://www.asp.net/default.aspx ).

If you have installed, did u have the Personal Web Server loaded first? I forgot this myself =)

ASPX Development on Win98

First off, the .Net framework is a beta product. Having said that:

1. Load PWS before the .Net framework. There is a known issue here.

2. Load the .Net Framework. Be prepared to reboot.

If you do not have the .Net Framework, go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/default.asp?URL=/code/sample.asp?url=/msdn-files/027/000/976/msdncompositedoc.xml and download the framework. You can also order the entire VS.Net product from MS on the .Net site (http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/).

There are still some large memory leaks in the product. While garbage collection cleans them up over time, I would recommend you have well over 128mB of RAM (I have 256 and 320 on my two machines and it runs decently). The leaks are worse in VS.Net than inthe framework, so you may be able to get by on 128 or less with just the framework.

This should be all you need to get ASPX running on your web server. I still recommend more than a 9x OS, but it is possible to run on 9x.
