For HTML & ASP via IIS:

  1. Install httpd web server component. This is not necessary on PocketPC2003 Emulator as a web server supporting ASP (VBScript & Javascript) is already built-in.

This is a web server supporting HTML and ASP written in JavaScript (but not VBScript!)
In WM2003, Microsoft used to provide a tool called SQL Dashboard which contains a mini HTTP&SQL server for PocketPC. This is no longer supported nor downloadable from Microsoft Website.


  1. For support for ASP written in VBScript, install the Vbscript component downloaded from http://www.nsbasic.com/ce/support/downloads.html


  1. Reboot the device, start the server via HTTPD, create a simple ASP page and test.

For classic ASP via 3rd party component:

  1. Install PocketASP downloadable from www.modezero.net/PocketASP/.
  2. Webpage will be accessible via a new protocol pasp://ModeZero/

For PHP:


  1. Install PocketHPH (“HPH”, no mispelling!), D:SoftwareMobileWMAdvancedPocketHPH.CAB, downloadable from http://mobileleap.net/hph/

Other Servers
