Ok, stuck with XP Home Edition on my laptop.
Is there any point in struggling with using VSWD, SQLExpress, and DNNv4.0 Starter Kit or any ASPv2.0 Starter kit?
Any advice, tips, workarounds, links is very much appreciated.
I'd hate to have to buy another license of XP Pro, and risk screwing up my laptop with drivers that don't match and the like, but if I have to do it, guess I will. I do have DNNv3.2 and DNNv4 running on another machine, just thought it would be nice to
have it on the laptop for those odd times when I have the laptop at a remote location and am bored, ya know.

Nope, doesn't from what I can tell. I've tried to load a simple web starter template, and it's not able to connect. So, that's why I'm asking for advice from someone who's further along in trying this route.
Thanks for the response, though. [;)]

Hmm... Just tried creating an empty website. I chose location: FileSystem. Then hit Ctrl-F5. The ASP.NET Development Server started and served up my default.aspx page. If you goto Website | ASP.NET Configuration that too should start the Dev server.
Does that happen for you?

Yep, after your post, I went again to do it, and chose file system rather than the http option, and indeed it will start a built-in web server. I was able to open up the simple web site, and explore making some changes.
So, I'll explore this option for a bit and report back to others what I find. Thanks again for the response. New tools new ways, eh!
