Just started working with Visual Studio 2013 Express web.  I create a responsive web site the other day.  Each day I have been trying to learn more about making changes to the layout.  Tonight, I added one addition menu item to the default menu items.

                        <li><a runat="server" href="~/">Home</a></li>
                        <li><a runat="server" href="~/About">About</a></li>
                        <li><a runat="server" href="~/Daily_Living">Daily Living</a></li>
                        <li><a runat="server" href="~/Contact">Contact</a></li>

The next time I ran it (Debug --> Start Debugging), I get 2 errors.  Both errors are the same: "External Component has thrown an exception."  Sheesh!?  Just because I added a menu item?  I took the menu item out, but I still get the two errors.

Basically, you have an issue with the code portions--i.e. the Razor, not the HTML--of your views. You need to track down what it is. It's most likely a syntax error. If you care to post the whole view, then we can probably help you track it down.

Well, shutting VS2013 down and restarting it got rid of the error. Go figure.  Any explanations for this behavior?  I would like to understand what just happened.

Just a simple restart fixed the problem.
