Unable to start ASP.NET debugging after upgrading Visual Studio 2005 to 2008

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello People,

Today I decided to perform an upgrade of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 to 2008 by running the conversion Wizard. I completed the upgrade process successfully.

Now, when I try to debug any of my code with MS visual studio, I get the error that it cannot start asp.net.

I am running Microsoft Visual 2008 on Windows 7, IIS 7.

Any ideas where I can check next?

Microsoft Visual Studio

Unable to start debugging on the web server. Could not start ASP.NET debugging. More information may be available by starting the project without debugging.

Unable to start ASP.NET debugging after upgrading Visual Studio 2005 to 2008


You should overlook the action methods, for constructing to debug ASP. Net. Make sure, that it is constructed correctly, if not, try to construct it properly.

Try to specify the IP address on your computer, by listing it as one of the trusted sites. To check if your specific IP address is listed as one the trusted sites, go to “Internet Explorer Tools, main menu setting” ; then select “Internet Options”  and choose the Security icon.

Recall if you installed your ISS after installing your Visual Studio.  If so, you need to re-register ASP. Net. and you may also try to check if your web applications have a web. Config file.  If you have a web.config file, enable your debug settings. Consider that if   you don’t have the copy of the operating system that naturally attaches to an application, you are required to open  your Visual Studio  without debugging and not automatically link to it.

You can try to hand type it, by clicking the “debug main menu icon”  and select “Start Without Debugging” ; then put the correct IIS for ASP. Net,  which is aspnet_wp.exe.
