upgrading from VS2010 to VS2015 RRS feed

    I have just installed VS2015 on a new Windows 64 bit  10 laptop. For a new web project everything works fine. However for an existing VS2010 project , while the build is successful, debug fails with error "Unable to connect to the configured web development server"..

    I have tried all of the solutions I have found on the internet with no success.

    Namely - removing proxy server, changing the port in the solution file, netsh command etc etc

    in any case the issue seems to be with the VS2010 project as a new project does have any issue

    Any help would be appreciated

    Issue has been resolved. My issue related to migrating a website created in VS2010 to VS 2015. Opening the solution file directly resulted in the above error when trying to debug. The solution was to start up Visual Studio 2015 , go to file/open/web site , navigate to the solution file and open the website .

    Debugging then works. You can then save the project. ( it will be saved to the VS2015 projects folder)
