Unable to connect to the configured development web server error in visual studio 2013

This SharePoint tutorial explains, how to resolve the issue which we get while trying to debug website in visual studio 2013 in SharePoint 2013.

Recently when I click on debug button it gave me the below error in the dialog box. The error comes as:

Failed to register URL “http://localhost:1635” for site “site name” application “/”. Error Description: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (0x80070029)

It looks like below:
