C# 2013. Web MVC app, Win 7/64 pro ISS 7, .Net 4.5
This morning I wanted to see if I could get this MVC app running locally outside the IDE.
Before I started I was able to run it within the IDE.
I published it to a folder a few days ago and today tried to run it locally. NG always get 503 errors. Tried some IIS restarting of app pools, etc., re-boots No luck.
So I went back to trying it in the IDE and not I cannot run it at all. Get
'Unable to start debugging on the web server. Unable to connect to the web server' when I run as Admin. (I do have admin rights) and 'Unable to start debugging on the web server. Could not start ASP.Net debugging.'
I get these messages run running in debug or release mode.
Nothing except debug to release and back was changed in the project.
I did create a new dummy web page and that came up.
Please Help, I am now dead in the water on this.
What I have tried:
Restart application pools
rebooting the system
