Install Microsoft Web Server on your Desktop

Trial Web Site on SmartWin Server

Microsoft has a cut-down version of Internet Information Services (IIS), also known as Personal Web Server (PWS) for most vesions of its desktop Windows OS. However, Microsoft also makes it quite difficult to configure PWS properly, which is precisely why we have this page to provide some helpful instructions.

All of our programs are compatible with PWS and can be tested under PWS for evaluations. Ultimately, you will run the eCommerce components under the full-blown Web Services on Windows 2000/2003/2008 Server. So it is NOT compulsary at all that you run PWS on your own PC.

You can arrange a trial hosting space from us, for a cost of US$10.00 for 30 days. It will be pre-configured and loaded with CyberOffice eCommerce programs of your choice. This will get you quickly on the road to evaluate our software, and get the best assistance from our support team. At the end of the trial, you can decide to stay hosting with us or move to anywhere else. See our specialized hosted services.

Contact us before or after you place the request for us to configure the trial site closest to what you look for.


Windows 2000, XP, Vista

Note that Microsoft has disabled PWS on Windows XP Home Edition. So you will need to upgrade it to Professional Edition.

Installation Procecure

Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Software --> Add/Remove Windows Components --> Internet Information Services (IIS) --> Either select the whole system or specify further components. Then click on the "Next >" button to install.

Start --> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Services Manager -> Right Click on the icon with your computer -> Properties -> Edit Master Properties of "WWW Services" -> Home Directory -> Set "Execute Permissions" to "Scripts Only".

Windows XP File Permission

Right-mouse-click on a folder / file to bring the properties page. Change the "Sharing" property of the folder c:\inetpub\wwwroot\_private to "Share this folder on the network" and "Allow Network users to change my files". This will unlock the permission when running a database application (like CyberOffice software).

If you do not see any "Network shareing and secuirty" options, you will need to run the "Network sharing wizard" there to activate them. The wizard asks your questions about file/printer sharing (and say yes to them).

Alternatively, you can assign "IUSR_xxx" to the Administrators group. Then the Web site should have sufficient permissions to run anything. See below.

Windows XP SP1 Firewall

You must be sure to enable certain ports which are used by your desktop when it acts as a test server. To do this,

Open the Control Panel -> select Windows Firewall -> select the Advanced tab -> click Settings with the Local Area Connection option checked.

Add selected ports which you are using, here are ones that are needed by a local Web Server:
Port 25 SMTP Mail Service.
Port 53 TCP for DNS Server.
Port 80 www service.

Additional ports of interests:
Port 21 FTP Service
Port 110 POP3 Mail Service
Port 443 SSL for www service
Port 3389 Terminal Services (i.e. Remote Desktop).

Windows Vista Registry Permission

When registering COM components, the installer needs to write to the Windows registry in portions that may be restricted.
Specifically, the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib registry branch and children should have full control granted to Administrators.

Granting permission to the branch can be done using the regedit utility. To do this,

Start -> Run -> RegEdit.Exe -> Browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT -> Right-Click -> Permissions
=> Set Full Control Permissions for Administrators (as well as the current user in question, if not in the Administrators' group).

You should have IIS or PWS installed before you install the .NET Framework.

If you install IIS after you install the .NET Framework, you must also register the ASP.NET extensions with IIS. You can do this by running the aspnet_regiis executable from:

%windows root directory%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\%version of the .NET Framework%\aspnet_regiis -r

where %windows root directory% is the directory Windows is installed to (typically c:\windows or c:\winnt) and %version of the .NET Framework% is the version of the .NET Framework you have installed. The directory for .NET 1.0 is v1.0.3705, for 1.1 is v1.1.4322, and for 2.0 is v2.0.50727.

Enable ASP.NET

XP IIS does not enable ASP.NET by default. To enable it:

Start --> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Services Manager -> Web Sites -> Default Web Site -> Right Click -> Properties -> ASP.NET => Follow instructions to enable it.

ASP.NET User Permission

ASP.NET requires proper "current user" permissions on certain files in order to function correctly. However, by default IUSR_xxx is not granted those permissions. To overcome this issue, you can assign IUSR and ASP.NET as a member of the "Administrators" group on your desktop. Of course this assumes that you are the only user to your own computer. To do so:

Start --> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Local Users and Groups -> Users -> Right Click on IUSR_xxx and ASP.NET -> Properties -> Member of => Browse to find and add "Administrators" to the list.

Accessing your PC Web Site

PWS means that you host a Web site on your own PC. The root directory is, by default, c:\inetpub\wwwroot. And the full domain name of your site is "localhost".

Thus you PC Web site can be viewed locally when you click on http://localhost/. CyberShop by default installs a shopping_cart folder under c:\inetpub\wwwroot\shopping_cart. You will then be able to see the same folder via the Web:


CyberOffice eCommerce setup programs will usually create icons on the desktop for your convenience, pointing the the localhost site.

That is not the end yet. On some computers, you cannot see http://localhost (because localhost is not defined). In that case use instead (i.e. replace localhost by

Norton Anti-Virus Users: You may need to disable "Script Blocking" feature on the computer (simply click on its icon on taskbar to change the setting). The feature does little on today's virus prevention anyway.
