Installing IIS Developer Express in an existing system with IIS Server

In this resource, I will give some early information on the side by side installation of IIS Developer Express edition with full version of IIS on Windows.

IIS Developer Express is a new, light weight web server from Microsoft. It brings the power of IIS web server to Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Side by side installation of IIS Developer Express with full version of IIS

The good news is, IIS Developer Express support side by side installation with full version of IIS on any recent Windows editions, including Windows 7. According to the information from the official blog of Mr. ScottGu, the IIS Developer Express is designed to work side by side with regular version of IIS.

The IIS Developer Express is not yet released and is not publicly available. So, at this time, I am unable to evaluate the benefits or problems of side by side installation. Once I get access to a released version of IIS, I will post more updates here.

If any of you have more information about IIS Developer Express and installation, please feel free to share the details.
