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:
Unable to connect to the configured development web server.
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:
Unable to connect to the configured development web server
I try restarting the visual studio 2013, but it did not help me out. Still, the same error came.
Then I restart the machine to resolve the issue.
I restarted the machine and then open visual studio and try debugging. It worked fine.
