Unable to launch the IIS Express Web server

[Origin]: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15873126/unable-to-launch-the-iis-express-web-server

I had the exact same problem.
The reason – bad IIS config file.

Try deleting the automatically-created IISExpress folder, which is usually located at %userprofile%/Documents, e.g. C:\Users\[you]\Documents\IISExpress.

Don’t worry, VS should create it again – correctly, this time – once you run your solution again.


EDIT: Command line for deleting the folder:

rmdir /s /q "%userprofile%\Documents\IISExpress"

shareedit
