i don't know why they moved the localhost out of the range of valid targets. maybe localhost makes it easy for malware to access the local computer.

you may think to using %computername% for your web app which would resolve to the current ip6 or ip4 address.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I installed the latest version of VS i.e. VS 2017 and then installed VS 2013 again and then it worked.
