When debugging in VS2008 you may see the message...

WebDev.WebServer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close&.

Then you hit a fatal error - "Unable to connect to the Web Server."  You could probably waste 10 minutes rebooting or you could try this.

In solution explorer click to select the PROJECT (not the solution).  Hit F4 or whatever key you have mapped for properties.  Do NOT right click that gives DIFFERENT properties.

Change Use Dynamic Port to false and Change the Port Number to something different.  It's probably best to choose a port number that's just a bit different to the random one selected for you.  Stay away from low numbered (less than 1024) ports.

Try debugging again.  You might need a bit of trial and error if you hit a port that somthing else is already using.  No; I don't know what error message you get if you hit an in use port.  If you find out please add a reply to this post.

Thanks, tomorrow I will probe that's in my job computer, to be more specific when the message display I have to options to debugg it(this take me in an instance of debugger and show me conflict to access ... something like 00000000000) or the other option is to close and restart the aplication(close and open the proyect again).
Before the Error Message appears I can see the message that's the server is running http://localhost:1444/MyApp, and after that the error appears...
