Unable to Start Debugging on the Web Server

One of the error you'll probably run into when setting up a new project is the "Unable to Start Debugging on the Web Server". Most of the time, this error can be fixed by enabling Integrated Windows Authentication. You can do this by:

1. Launch IIS Management Console.
2. Right click on the website and select Properties.
3. Click on the Directory Security Tab.
4. Check the box that reads "Integrated Windows authentication".

If that doesn't work, you'll need to make sure that Keep HTTP-Alives Enabled option is checked. And if all fails, register the .net framework again and check your permission settings.

Good Luck!
