Localhost Account no longer working on Windows 10. Unable to test ASP.Net applications! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using Visual Studio Web Developer (VWD) 2010 to develop Web applications for my clients. For Testing purposes, VWD creates a port on localhost under IIS and executes the page. However, since my upgrade to Windows 10, this functionality seems to be no longer supported.

    When I try to test my page I get the following error in my browser:

    Server Error in '/asp.netwebadminfiles' application

    Compiler error

    Message: CS0122 'System.Configuration.StringUtil' is inaccessible due to its protection level.

    When I tried to install IIS Administration Console using Add/remove Windows features, but unfortunately got this error:

    Windows couldn't complete the requested changes.

    The Component Store has been corrupted.

    Error code: 0x80073712

    Please help!
