    Personal Web Server and Windows ME???

    I have decided it's time to learn ASP, however my operating system is Windows ME and I am sure that I've read somewhere that it does not support Personal Web Server so before I go out and buy a new operating system can anyone confirm that this is true.

    Thanks for any help - Neil.

    winME doesnt come with PWS on the CD, but it does work on it, as i learnt asp the same way (i now use win2k)

    if you look on the m$ site, you might be able to find it, if not, you could get it from a win98 disc

    Yes, PWS will work on Windows ME, however, I believe when installed it had a problem where all the text was displayed in a wingdings-style font. there was also a fix for it somewhere out there, and yet I may have been thinking of another OS.

    Hope this helps in some way.

    I don't think so. I already try using PWS on Win ME. At the beginning, PWS works but after a few time later, it always conflict in memory.
    And I'm sure I have read somewhere (include in Microsoft site) said Win ME doesn't support PWS.

    Okay, that's most likely right. I was thinking of a problem i had in a previous Win98 installation.

    thanks for the clarification, Jet_wang.
