Microsoft Announces IIS Express 7.5 Web Server

Microsoft has announced IIS (Internet Information Services) Express 7.5, a free version of its IIS web server optimised for developers. The company also unveiled an embedded database upgrade and an open source content management tool.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President of the Developer Division Scott Guthrie said. “We think it combines the ease of use of the ASP.NET Web Server with the full power of IIS. The downside with using the IIS option today, though, is that some companies don’t allow full Web servers to be installed on developer machines. IIS also requires administrator account access to setup and debug projects.

IIS 7.5 Express enhances your ability to develop and test web applications on Windows by combining the power of IIS 7.5 with the convenience of a lightweight web server like the ASP.NET Development Server (also known as Cassini). IIS 7.5 Express is included withMicrosoft WebMatrix, an integrated suite of tools designed to make developing web applications on Windows simple and seamless. IIS 7.5 Express can also be used with Visual Studio 2010 as a powerful alternative to Cassini. The benefits of using IIS 7.5 Express include:
The same web server that runs on your production server is now available on your development computer.
Most tasks can be done without the need for administrative privileges.
IIS 7.5 Express runs on Windows XP and all later versions of Windows.
Many users can work independently on the same computer.
This package installs only IIS 7.5 Express. For an integrated development experience, also install Microsoft WebMatrix or Visual Studio 2010.
