Web PI 2.0

7 October 2009 by James Crawshaw

This week, Microsoft launched their Web Platform Installer 2.0 tool.

This simple to use, extremely lightweight piece of software allows end users to quickly and easily install a plethora of free Web Platform software.

What’s great about this is that it really does make it a lot easier for administrators to get a server up and running, ready to host websites and the like. Just a few clicks (and a meagre 74kb download!) and you’re installing IIS7.5, MS SQL 2008 Express and many other non-MS software products – and, prior to installing, it auto downloads whatever you select from the Windows Web Application Gallery 2.0.

Happy Platform Installing!
