Get Web Platform Installer and get all the latest web related Tools/Programs

Web Plagtform Installer (Web PI) is a free tool and a treasure house for those interested in developing for the web. It is the source to get some of the free stuff for Microsoft Web Platform components like Internet Information Services, SQL Server Express, .NET Framework, Web Matrix
and a host of other development related resources including third party/Open Source programs. It is well suited for blogging, content management, learning and you can use the Windows Web Application Gallery.
