I downloaded it, unzipped it, but I can't figure out how to get it to run. It keeps saying I don't have the what it takes to open the files. I just have a regular computer with Windows XP.

Hi Kim,

MWPSK is a Microsoft ASP.NET/IIS based content management system.  As such, you'll need a minimum of a server running IIS, (Internet information services), and with the Microsoft dotnet framework - version 2 installed, or a hosting company with both these.  IIS is on the windows install disk for XP, if you haven't already installed it.  The framework can be downloaded from here, although if you're up to date with your Windows Updates, you should already have this.

For development purposes, just Visual Studio 2005/2008 is required, as both of these will allow you to run the website on your desktop PC, (without IIS, although you'll still need this to run the "live" website).  Additionally, you'll be able to change the code, customise behaviour, etc.

If the above doesn't help, drop us another line and we'll take a closer look.
