Minimum Hardware Requirements for Microsofts Personal Web Server Release Notes

For you to install and run PWS, your computer must meet certain hardware and software requirements. This topic details the requirements, and includes an easy-to-follow table you can use to review your system.

Hardware Requirements

If you intend to publish documents on your intranet, you must have a network connection. If you plan to use PWS as a development and staging platform only, and then upload your site to a corporate server or an Internet service provider, a network connection is not required. In addition, your hardware must meet the following specifications.
