I am using VS2013. When I try run my project I am getting an error message as

"unable to start debugging on the web server. IIS does not list a web site that matches the launch URL in VS2013".

Later I even tried running the VS as 'Administrator'. When I try to do so and run my project I am getting an error as

HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error

The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

Detailed Error Information:

Can anyone please help to fix the problem so that I can run my project.

Look at the project properties for your web project and in the "Web" tab there is a setting for the project url, and a drop down that will let you choose from different servers. This has to be correct. We don't know what "correct" is as we don't have access to your system and don't know how you have configured IIS\Visual Studio etc.

For the error RE the web.config it looks like you're trying to run a website from a folder that is not the root of an IIS configured site. To run a site from a folder you need a web site to be created in IIS that point to that folder as its root.

Read some articles on setting up and deploying websites in IIS and that should explain the various things you need to do.
