I'm using both XAMPP and IIS for local web development and I was wondering - is there a little tool for fast switching between both servers? (Disabling services on one server, activating on other server.)

Maybe it would go like "net stop <servicename>", "net start <servicename>" – Andrew Smith Jul 4 '12 at 11:01
You can start both XAMPP and IIS on different port, in this way you will not need to restart server again and again. – Abhijeet Kasurde Jul 4 '12 at 11:28

You just can turn off IIS same as XAMPP

Guide for turning off IIS:

  1. Go to start
  2. Click RUN
  3. Type in Inetmgr.exe and then press enter
  4. Now simply click turn off ;)

XAMPP guide:

  1. Start up XAMPP
  2. Click both away
