Started with Web Matrix and it's little personal web server, downloaded and installed MSSQL server as per
www.ASP.Net and succesfully installed that. Everything works fine. Later, $200 on Ebay got me Visual Studio .Net 2003 Professional, installed that TODAY so haven't had time to screw with (or up) anything much at all.
When I go to create a New VB, ASP.Net Web Application project I get:
Visual Studio .Net cannot create or open the application because no web server was detected at this URL 'http://localhost/WebApplication1' Make sure the web server is installed and running.
SO, I go to the Control Panel, select Visual Studio, click the Change/Remove button and proceed to try to install the web server, which, unfortunately, has a big red X in front and will not allow me to check the checkbox in order to install it. Lovely.
I am deathly afraid somebody is going to tell me I have to upgrade to XP Pro, regardless of whatever personal and sql web servers are already installed
Can I use XP Home simply for developing ASP.Net applications in VS.Net, as in, IS there a workaround to the one that assumedly comes with VS.Net 2003 Pro?

Visited NewEgg.com, bought a nifty new computer case on sale, and XP Pro with SP2. Another $200 (besides $200 for VS.Net Pro and $137.ish in new books just to start).
I wonder how MS will act when I install this perfectly legal XP Home on another machine after replacing it with Pro on this one...?
Just imagine if this programming stuff was expensive...! [:|]
Thanks for the advice!
