To run and execute ASP.NET web sites you require .NET framework 3.5 and IIS Internet Information Server on your Windows machine(Windows xp, Windows Vista, Windows Server2003 or Windows Server 2008). You also need an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to code all your asp.net files. Microsoft provides a free version ASP.NET development environment Visual Web Developer Express. You can download and install the VWD Express from the following link

http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/

Installing VWD Express will install the necessary .net framework files. It will also install (if selected for a complete install), SQL SERVER 2005 EXPRESS(free edition SQL SERVER). You will be developing most of the web applications with SQL SERVER as your database. Certainly, you can work with other databases as well, like MS ACCESS, MySql, Oracle...

VWD Express comes with a built-in webserver Cassini to test all the asp.net pages you create. After installing all the necessary softwares you are ready to get started with ASP.NET.
