I've finished developping a website and want to test it in my other machine where is installed an xp home edition. I have my published files in an usb key, I've successfully installed Sqlserver Express Edition on that machine and now... my problem is : where
do I have to copy my published files?
I've tried installing IIS using the methode suggested in this page :(http://adamv.com/dev/articles/iis-on-xp-home/) but I can't make it worked.
Does any body have another way to install my website in the machine to test it in local. I just want to install it in local and use it in local for test
Tks a lot.

if you have the needed .NET frameworks installed you can run Cassini on your machine. It doesn't provide all the bells and whistles of IIS but gets the job done. Actually Visual Studio uses this same localhost only webserver. Just follow the guidelines in
How To: Running the built in webserver of Visual Studio 2005 yourself.

I've tried installing IIS...
There is no IIS on XP Home, and this hack doesn't usually work (plus you need a licensed version of XP Pro anyway).
You can install Visual Web Developer Express or Cassini to run your site. Or host your site somewhere else.
