ASP.NET is easy to install. Just follow the instructions below.
What You Need
A Windows Computer
ASP.NET is a Microsoft technology. To run ASP.NET you need a computer capable
of running Windows.
Windows 2000 or XP
If you are serious about developing ASP.NET applications you should install
Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional.
In both cases, make sure you install the Internet Information
Services (IIS) from the Add/Remove Windows components dialog.
Service Packs and Updates
Before ASP.NET can be installed on your computer, it is necessary to have all
relevant service packs and security updates installed.
The easiest way to do this is to activate your Windows Internet Update. When
you access the Windows Update page, you will be instructed to install the latest
service packs and all critical security updates. For Windows 2000, make sure you
install Service Pack 2. I will also recommend that you install Internet Explorer

Remove Your Beta Version
If you have a Beta version of ASP.NET installed, we recommend
that you completely uninstall it. Or even better: start with a fresh Windows
2000 or XP installation.
From your Windows Update you can now select to install the Microsoft .NET
After download, the .NET framework will install itself on your computer -
there are no options to select for installation.
You should now be ready to develop your first ASP.NET application!
The .NET Software Development Kit
If you have the necessary bandwidth to download over 130 MB, you might
consider downloading the full Microsoft .NET Software Development Kit (SDK).
We fully recommend getting
the SDK for learning more about .NET and for the documentation, samples, and tools
Connection Speed and Download Time
If you have a slow Internet connection, you might have problems downloading
large files like the service packs, the SDK and the latest version of Internet Explorer.
If download speed is a problem, our best suggestion is to get the latest
files from someone else, from a colleague, from a friend, or from one of the CDs
that comes with many popular computer magazines. Look for Windows 2000 Service
Pack 2, Internet Explorer 6, and the Microsoft .NET Framework.
