Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server. There is no managed code running in the process. In order to attach to a process with the .NET debugger, managed code must be running
in the process before attaching.

I've created a local user, member of the local administartors & debugger users group for testing - so I don't think it's a permissions thing. I've repaired the Dot Net Framework and opened up permissions in IE and

Per Microsoft's Knowledge base, I did try restarting IIS, which did not help. I don't think IIS is the problem as IIS is running since I can open IE and simply run the web app. I just can't debug. The web folder configuration is standard: anonymous with Integrated authentication. I've reinstalled the DN Framework and registered ASP.NET using ASPNET_REGIIS -i. I've also tried logging in as a local user who is a member of the local administrators & debugger users groups.  All other settings and installs are default.

Any ideas?

Thanks -

Thanks, but after running that fix - same error. I've uninstalled DBF 1.0 & 1.2.
Reregistered msordbi.dll & reregistered ASP.NET: aspnet_regiis -i.

I'm assuming you also installed the .NET server components? Other than that, dunno.

I had the same problem and it was on win2003 server. But I had only .net framework sdk on the server and not or anything. I can debug my local app (on my local web server) easily but cannot from server and my last bet would be use framework  disk to install and play around it. Since its a Production I am hesitant to install , but I do not have any choice.

I would just suggest you to install .net framework and required component from VS studio disk/.net framework disk.
