  • IIS Express won't run after renaming machine

    Dec 10, 2015 03:39 PM|AxelD|LINK

    I renamed my virtual machine's NETBIOS name (Windows 10/64 Bit > Control Panel > System > Advanced) in order to avoid double host names.

    After installing Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 I now can't debug my web applications anymore. I suspect this is due to me renaming the machine.

    How can I get IIS Express back running?

    Hi AxelD,

    AxelD

    After installing Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 I now can't debug my web applications anymore. I suspect this is due to me renaming the machine.

    How can I get IIS Express back running?

    Do you try to uninstall IIS 10.0 Express and reinstall it?

    Unfortunately that didn't help. I get the same error as before:

    What can i do to find out what's wrong with my IIS setup? Is there an error log available?

    Your help is appreciated.

    I noticed that this error occurs only with one particular project I've been working on.

    So it doesn't seem to be particularly IIS Express related but related to my project. I wonder what's causing this error.

    Still, do you know if there is an error log available?

    I have created an issue at MS Connect now.
