IIS Express

II’S Express’

No – not a revival of the 80’s British dance act but a new release from Microsoft ….

IIS Express is a lightweight installable version of the popular web hosting platform Internet Information Services (IIS) 7, which can run on XP and above operating systems. 

Features and benefits include:

  • Lightweight and easy to install (less than 10Mb download and a super quick install)
  • Does not require an administrator account to run/debug applications from Visual Studio
  • Enables a full web-server feature set – including SSL, URL Rewrite, Media Support, and all other IIS 7.x modules
  • Supports and enables the same extensibility model and web.config file settings that IIS 7.x support
  • Can be installed side-by-side with the full IIS web server as well as the ASP.NET Development Server (they do not conflict at all)
  • Beta to be released shortly and more detailed information available over at Scott Guthrie’s blog.

    Let’s hope its a chart topper….
