After installing Internet Information Services on Windows XP, the next step is to download and install the .NET Framework. You can get the .NET Framework from the website www.asp.net. I'll navigate to that website now. I'll go into Internet Explorer and go to www.asp.net. From the home page, I'll go to the section labeled Get ASP.NET - Free and click on ASP. NET Framework. And from there I'll go down to Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.5. At the time of recording the most recent version was 3.5 Service Pack 1. Click the link to download. After you have downloaded the file, double click it to open it, the name of the file is dotnetfx35setup.exe.
After a few moments spent loading the installation components, you will see this screen. Take a look at the licensing document and then if you accept it, click the appropriate icon. If you would like to send information about setup experiences, you can check this option, I won't. And then click Install. During the installation process, additional files will be downloaded from the Microsoft website. So you will need access to the Internet throughout this process. The installation process runs fairly seamlessly, so you can walk away, get a cup of coffee and when you come back, the installation should be complete.
After the installation is complete, it's a good idea to reboot your computer and then you will be ready for the next step, to actually deploying your website.
