I am new to web development and currently work for a large company and
I'm not sure how to explain what I need to IT. Can I use anything I
currently have? I don't want all these extraneous programs.
I need to let my supervisor know what I need, but he will say we
already have this installed. I'm very confused and at this point and
hate Microsoft. I am so far from being a real computer nerd and it is
very frustrating that I can't set up an asp.net environment. Can
someone please help?

are the Microsoft development apps currently installed:

I need to set up a website and I want to use VWD Express. I also want
to be able to connect to a SQL Server Database.

When I try to open IIS I get an error "THe snap-in below, referenced
in this document has been restricted by policy. Contact your
administrator for details.

I think I have to set up a site in IIS and I can't open it.

The Framework is installed and you look to have everything you need to begin
development.

You need to make sure that your user account has admin rights on your
machine.

To create a website, open Visual Studio 2008 and select "Create a New
Website"

Hit F5 to launch the site in debug mode.

Once you do that, yer gonna need some educational and reference materials.
Learning .Net is not as difficult as it may seem, but there are several
technologies you have to become familiar with to do it (HTML, JavaScript,
CSS, SQL, managing IIS and how to code in whatever your chosen .Net
language)

I prefer the "For Dummies" series for novice developers because they give
good step-by-step instructions for accomplishing a given task.
HTML for Dummies, JavaScript for Dummies, ASP.NET 3.5 for Dummies and Visual
Studio for Dummies wouldn't be a bad start.

Once you can perform the basic tasks of creating a site in IIS, connecting
to Data, creating SQL Statements, displaying information to the user,
updating the data and publishing the site (and most people can learn these
tasks in a couple days to a week), you'll be well on your way to stardom!

I do know HTML CSS some SQL, Javascript yadda yadda, but I still get
confused about the development environment. I've been using
Dreamweaver and Flash mostly. Well I will try what you said but don't
I need IIS to create a database?

OK

"Because of the built-in VWD Web server you don't need to create
virtual directories in IIS. In fact, any folder with ASPX pages can
be considered a Web site. VWD doesn't require special project files
to maintain a list of all the Web pages that are part of a Web site.
This makes working as a team on a single Web site easier than ever
before because there won't be any contention for files that control
the entire site."

Hello redant34,

No you don't need IIS to create a database. The databse (which you have already
installed it seems) is hosted in it's own service and runs independent of
IIS. IIS is used to serve websites, but if you're using Visual Studio 2005
or later you can use the built in development webserver that comes with it.
