Problems With IIS Express Files When Opening Project In Visual Studio


When attempting to open a Solution (with Projects) in Visual Studio you may see the following message:

One or more projects could not be loaded.

On clicking Reload on the Solution you see a message saying that IIS Express could not open a file due to corruption.


First close Visual Studio!

Rename the My Documents > IIS Express > config folder to something else (e.g. old_config).

Next time Visual Studio is opened it will create a new configuration folder and be able to load the project.
