I have read that in order to use IIS with VS 2012 you right-click the solution name in Solution Explorer, select Properties and click the Web tab in the property sheet, then select "Use IIS". In my instance of VS 2012 the property sheet that displays when I select properties does not include any tabs:

Visual Studio Property Sheet
Am I looking at the wrong sheet? If so, where do I find the correct one?

Thanks

I believe you're supposed to be looking at the properties page for the project, not the solution.

The Solution is the top-level, and can contain one or more projects:
Solution ExplorerRight-click the project, choose Properties, go to the Web tab and you should see:

What you describe is what I have been doing, but I can't find the form with the tabs on the left -- when I right click the project and select properties this is the form that displays

Project Property Page

In that case you'll need to go to the "Start options" option instead and change the "Server"option to "Use a custom server" and set the base URL to a path on your IIS.

Thanks for the hints, but I found that there were multiple problems with my environment. Working with an expert friend, we spent 2 1/2 hours doing diagnostics, adjusting settings, reinstalling ASP.Net 4.0 Framework, removing IIS Express, removing VS Express for Web and installing VS 2013, fixing references and paths, etc. It was a total mess, but it's all finally working.
