Requirements and Setup
All samples were written on a machine running Windows XP Pro with IIS and the .Net Framework 1.1.
To run the examples provided in these articles it is recommended you have a system running the latest release of the .Net Framework and IIS.
Create a directory under your default web root where you will create all of the required files. For the documentation purposes we'll call this directory "test". An example of the path to our new directory would be c:\inetpub\wwwroot\test. It is not necessary to make any changes to this directory in IIS manager. Since it resides in the web root it is automatically considered a v-root of your default website. Do not make this directory a web application.
