Insufficient privileges to access IIS websites on machine when logged as the Administrator on Windows 10


  • I am unable to troubleshoot further an issue whether Visual Studio 20xx displayed an error indicating that insufficient privileges are held to access Internet Information Services.

    I have Windows 10 and IIS 8.0 and I hope to read some in-depth configuration instructions if you may.  

    Moreover it is observed that software installation have validations depending on the underlying version of Windows installed and whilst this is sometimes taken with a pinch of salt it would be useful to run an audit and indicate the kind of software that can be used with the particular version of Windows, assuming that a level of quality assurance exists in both software production house and Microsoft Inc.
