IIS with Windows Me?

By galahad04 ·
I am a developer running applications such as Visual Studio, Dreamweaver, etc. I would like to be able to program in ColdFusion, Visual Interdev, and UltraDev on my home computer (just for single personal use; no Internet access is needed). However, to do so I either need PWS or IIS. PWS is out of the question because it cannot run on Windows Me--when I tried it corrupted up the Registry and required a clean re-installation of Windows. Therefore, is it possible to install and run IIS 4 onWindows Me? (I think you can do this with Windows 95?) If so, how does one obtain a copy of IIS to install? If this is not possible, what would you recommend as an alternative?

You cannot run IIS on Win 9.x or ME. IIS is for NT, 2k and XP. PWS is not for ME or XP although possible with a number of unsupported hacks. The best alternative is Apache. Basic installation info for it at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/windows.html

Thanks for the tip. Actually I ended up upgrading to Windows XP Pro so now I can run IIS.
