    Hello. I've installed a web matrix and it gives you these errors when trying to open the app;

    The Web Platform product list cannot be downloaded. Check and try your network connection again. If the problem persists, report the issue to the Web Platform Installer forum at: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=145244.
    Details:
    One or more errors have occurred.

    'doctype' is an unexpected token. Expected token: 'DOCTYPE'. Line 1, position 3.

    Hello!  Thanks for posting - unfortunately WebMatrix was retired and is no longer receiving support.

    https://blogs.iis.net/webmatrix/webmatrix-product-support-ends-on-november-1st-2017

    As an alternate, the team recommends checking our VS Code for your development IDE

    Thanks!

    Same problem here. After validating connection, I can't FTP publish to server. Similar error as OP.
