VS2010 Start up web page doesn't load in browser

When I run and compile a web in the visual studio 2010 ide, the default page doesn't load in the default browser. You will see the development server start up as usual, then it seems to attempt to load the browser - then it fails and exits debug mode.

What is your default browser? Can you try changing it to IE, if it is not IE already?
What is the error with which the launch fails?

There are two issues that could happen due to browser incompatibilities
1) The HTML generated by your ASP .net code not working with the browser
2) VS2010 not able to startup a browser during development/ debug

You have Issue 2)

If it works with IE and doesn't work with other browsers. Have you tried updating the other browsers to the latest version?

Hi, you know what - I figured out the issue.

Basically, some windows updates will screw up the default browser when its not IE - at least from what I found online.

So to fix the problem, I just uninstalled chrome and reinstalled it - then it worked.

And thanks for your comment, updating or reinstalling may have fixed it as well so your advice put me in the right direction...
