  • Hi Mithilesh3,

    Thanks for your posting.

    Several method below might be helpful:


    check your solution folder for a hidden ".vs" folder with a "config" sub-folder. If that folder exists and it has it's own applicationhost.config file you need to either rename (or delete) that file or edit it and make sure the website(s) configured inside match the ASP.NET web app(s) in your solution that you are trying to debug. Hope this helps.


     Solution Explorer in Visual Studio, right click on the web project, chose properties and then navigated to the "web" tab. From there I changed the Project URL to another port number. For example, if it was http://localhost:1052 - I changed it to  http://localhost:4356.


    If your machine is 64bit, please go to Tools-> options -> projects and solutions:

    Please let me know which one shown above could help.

    Have a good day:)

    Looking forward to your reply.

  • Hi guys,

    We were getting the same issue and our solution was very simple: 

    1) Right click on the Web project and select "Set as StartUp Project"

    2) Then change the browser in the top menu, see below picture.

    In our case, it was failing with IE and it works for Chrome and Edge.

  • I too found a Silverlight .Net web app that would not debug. It would start in debug, and the orange bar would be on bottom of screen. Then it went away. Googled all day. At 1:10PM found this url. Got here by googling “The program '[5600] w3wp.exe: Managed (v4.0.30319)' has exited with code 0 (0x0).”  

    #3 The Tools, Options, Project and Solutions recommendation got it to work for me, but wasn't the same.  Mine didn’t have the ‘use the 64 bit version of IIS Express for web sites and projects’ option. It had “Use IIS Express for new file-based web sites and projects.” It was checked. I unchecked it. I think my web app is using IIS 7 not ISS Express. After restarting I could debug!

  • I ran into the same issue today, for the first time. New installation of VS 2017 on a new box for me...

    Anyway, the 3rd option worked for me as well, at least after I closed down VS and reopened it...
