Here I am minding my own business, trying to get a little work done, when suddenly after a reboot – BAM – I load Visual Studio and I get this seemingly bizarre message:
After muttering a few WTF comments I tried browsing to the localhost, no go. Reset IIS, no go. After which a little searching surfaced that port 80 was probably already in use. I ran a little tool call netstat.exe to find out if port 80 was in use. Run netstat –ano from the command line. I saw that port 80 was indeed in use by process number 3564. Off to task manager to see which process this was – lo an behold – Skype. Somehow it started before IIS this time around on my machine…and stole the port. Go figure.
Anyways, the message in Visual Studio threw me a little, hope that helps if it happens to you.
Hi, I'm back with a new blog. Er...finally.
