Did you ever find a solution to this?

I'm getting the same error and can't seem to find a solution for it.

  • Debugging works fine with IIS Express
  • The website can be accessed fine with Local IIS directly from a browser
  • But debugging from VS when the project's Server is set to "Local IIS" I get "Unable to start debugging on the web server. The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."

It's not a typo on my site. I've copied the URL as VS generates it in "Project Url" and when pasting that into my browser, the site works fine.

Tried restarting app pool, restarting VS as Administrator, restarting PC, re-extracting the downloaded zip for mvcforum and running that. Doubt there's anything wrong with my app pool, which is about the only recommendation I've found online, because as I said, it works fine directly from the browser.

Any help will be appreciated.
