I state immediately that I'm not an expert about ASP.NET
but I just approached this
world. I come right to the point. The main goal is
distribution of a software package by download it
from a personal area of a web server.
In outline the process is this:
1. A user registers himself on the website
by entering the usual data such as
2. He get an email with a temporary link
for e-mail confirmation;
3. After the e-mail confirmation, in his area is activated
a link where the user can download the installer
of the program;
Of course, all done in ASP.NET.
So I would start a discussion about this subject about how to achive my goal,.
Does anyone know direct me?
Thank you all

You could create a new guid value (Guid.NewGuid() on the C# side or NEWID() on the SQL Server side) with a creation or expiration date. The generated email link would use that as a parameter.
Beyond describing what you are trying to do it is also useful to know the very first problem you have in doing so so that we can focus where you need help (especially if you are new it is not always easy to grasp which kind of help you need).

thank you for replay. The main goal is the distribution of a
software package by download it from a
personal area of a web server. Consequently, I'll have to handle user authentication, application serial number and file download procedure. Technologies involved could be ASP NET, MVC, SQL server and maybe Microsoft Azure. I'm not an expert about
ASP NET, and so I need help to start.
Thank you again

From your description. I am not sure what is problem.
I think what you could refine your problem. and list a list of your problem after that.
Then I could give my answer on your each question.

you are right. My problem is that I don't know where to start from. If you ask me about to create a C++ console application, I talk to you about main function, compilers, c++ statements and so on.
This is to make you understand the comparison. In the past I've made some very simple site by Visual Studio project and bootstrap: this is all my background.
A possible questions could be:
Thank you very much.
