I recently installed Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition (that I received free from the "Heroes happen here" event) on a machine that already had Visual Studio 2005 Professional edition. The OS is XP Pro. The installation appeared to finish without errors. When I created a "Hello World" website and hit F5, it built just fine, but fails after that with the error:
WebDev.WebServer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I verified that I can still run web apps in the older version of Visual Studio 2005. I verified I can run windows applications in the newer 2008 version.
My coworker has the same setup (Visual Studio 2005 Pro and Visual Studio 2008 Standard). He is able to run web apps under both versions.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
