Cannot debug suddenly

    Hi all,

    I have a problem that occurred out of the blue. I was able to work just
    fine, debug apps, etc. and now, all of a sudden, I cannot debug.

    I get a dialog box saying:
    "Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web
    Click help for more information"

    I clicked HELP and went through that page, confirming everything. None of it
    was out of whack, but I did try to repair my .NET installation.

    I have scoured the Net for ideas, and most things point to the same article
    that the help button leads to. Still others deal with slight variations on
    the error message, most of which provide more info to help solve the issue,
    whereas my error message is very vague.

    I have also tried checking the permissions and user accounts on another
    machine that is working fine, and mine are identical, save the user name. I
    have repaired my VS installation, repaired my .NET installation, re-installed
    VS 2K3, stopped and restarted my web services, IIS, and networking. I have
    rebooted a million times, and even sacrificed a chicken to Microsoft... but
    all to no avail.

    I have even tried using FileMon to watch what is going on during the debug
    session attempt, but do not see anything glaring (although I must admit,
    reading the output seems to require far more knowledge than I possess). I am
    at my wits end with this thing, and am just hoping some kind soul out there
    can guide me through this.

    Thanks for ANY input.

  2. Chris,

    Although your problem is often answered in this newsgroup especially by
    Kevin in this newsgroup. (Maybe can you search yourself this newsgroup for
    that and use Kevin as "a" keyword)

    I would in your case ask this as well in the newsgroup.


    Web interface:

    This kind of problem as you have now, can come suddenly just because a
    change in a security setting.

    And as you write yourself in a way, it is a hell to find this kind of things
    and when you find it, than it is mostly something very simple.

    I hope this helps anyhow

    Hi Cor,

    Thanks for the response. I tried searching for Kevin and debug, but did not
    see anything related to my issues in the 3 pages of results... Did you, by
    chance, see something specific?

    Also, I am not sure I get your meaning in the remainder of your post. The
    other two links (one for Aspnet and one for Web Interface)... are you
    suggesting I post to those groups as well? I have posted all over the place
    and have yet to receive a response. Fortunately we have a Universal MSDN
    subscription, which is how I discovered the Managed groups. I'd love to be
    able to work this out here so we don't have to burn one of our free phone
    support calls. But I need to get this fixed ASAP. It has been plaguing me
    for a week, and it is making my development timeline protracted.

    Any further assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!

  4. Chris,

    I did not know you posted it already there.

    Dit you already create a new simple "Hello World Project" to see if it is in
    your project or in the configuration?

    Hi Cor,

    Yes... it has the same problem with a simple app, like Hello World.

    Do you know the security model well enough to guide me through this or will
    someone else from MS respond here?
