  • IIS Manager Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process...

    Mar 13, 2007 02:16 PM|kjetilso|LINK

    This is IIS 7 in Windows Vista Ultimate. The web site is stopped and when I try to start it the error message (in subject) appears.

    In EventLog(System) I get the following following errors:

    Source: HttpEvent

    Msg: Unable to bind to the underlying transport for [::]:80. The IP Listen-Only list may contain a reference to an interface which may not exist on this machine. The data field contains the error number.


     Source: IIS-W3SVC

    Msg: The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW Service) did not register the URL prefix http://*:80/ for site 1. The site has been disabled. The data field contains the error number.

    I'm at a loss. I have no clue as to what is wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
