web services ...Urgent!!

Hi guys,

I am in my office and am stuck-up with below problem.. Pls Help!!

I have developed a web service and a web application client in my XP Professional machine (Lets call it 'XP_Prof'). Now, I want to access my same web service from the same web application, but this time I want this client to be in my another machine which has Windows XP (HOME), not professional). Lets call this machine 'XP_Home'.

When i copy my client web application to XP_Home, it doesnt allow me to open the application, as it does not have IIS.

1. Is there any option to edit and run an ASP.NET/web application without an IIS (As i dont want to upgrade it to XP Professional right now) ??
2. Is there any other servers, in which ASP.NET would work fine and is free to be downloaded ??

Any help, is surely appreciated..

I can't understand why nobody has responded to your post. Yes, you can run your asp.net application on Windows XP Home. All you need to do is install a web server for this purpose.
The Cassini Web Server is a free download at
http://asp.net/Projects/Cassini/Download/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1

There is also another called the CassiniEx Web server at
http://www.systemex.net/CassiniEx/

I haven't used either one so can't make a recommendation based upon pratical use. I would say to try them before upgrading to XP Pro.
