According to
Virtual hosts doesn’t work on IIS with XP Pro

The install instructions at 
says it must be done

Should I just install the validator in a folder on the
Only web-site it allows?
Any one got any ideas?

It might be.

If you first follow the instructions for installing the validator on  

and then look up some documentation on how to set up a CGI in IIS.
then you'll have a working validator.

However, the documentation and interface page may not work well,  
because IIS may not support the server-side-includes (SSI) used by  
the validator. (previous discussion on this at: http://lists.w3.org/ 
Archives/Public/www-validator/2006Oct/0019.html )

If you manage to do it, please document it and we can make other IIS  
users happy.
