I have tried just about everything. Checked to make sure the user is part of the local VS Developers, Debuggers and Administrator group. Made sure the user had rights to that folder. Everything was working fine on this workstation, nothing was changed then this problem just came from nowhere. I am using IIS locally and I also use SourceGear Vault to track application changes.

Did you install the Visual Studio .NET server components on the web server?

Have you modified the web.config or machine.config file for the web?

It was working previously. No changes were made. I didn't do anything with web.config. I did modify the user in the <process key in machine.config.

Another note is that this is not actually my laptop but one of my developers.

I have seen some very strange errors come down to not having the right syntax entries in the web.config and machine.config.  The entries are case-sensitive, so make very sure that you haven't changed something inappropriately.

I tried debugging a different project before and got the same error messages. After making tons of changes based off of other suggestions I eventually tried that other project again and it debugged fine. NOw the problem appears to be the current project itself. Thanks for your help.
