As a background, I'm mainly an embedded developer and was hired to make a simple change to one of our company's web applications. The application is an ASP.NET application (originally developed with Visual Studio 2010) running on Windows Server 2012. I am trying to modify / debug the code on my local Windows 10 computer with Visual Studio 2017.
When I try to run the application locally on Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio displays a message that debugging on the Web server can not be started. The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden. "
I have tried several things, such as For example, grant IIS_USR and Network Service permissions to my path. The following is logged in C: inetpub logs LogFiles W3SVC1:
2019-10-15 15:07:14 :: 1 DEBUG /ECNAD/DebugAttach.aspx – 80 – :: 1 – – 403 0 0 1249
2019-10-15 15:15:46 :: 1 DEBUG /ECNAD/DebugAttach.aspx – 80 – :: 1 – – 403 0 0 39
I would be very happy to receive any help to run this web application locally.
Thank you in advance.
