Deploying Drupal 7 on Windows is very easy with Web Platform Installer. In this session you will learn how to start from scratch and deploy a Drupal 7 web site on IIS 7.5, with MySQL as a database backend, in a matter of minutes. The demo is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, but works also on Windows 7 if you want to try it and you don't have a server for your tests.
In case you might also want to try the demos in a virtual machine, just download a free copy of Windows Server trial edition and run it on your favorite virtualization software, on Windows, Mac or Linux.
