I posted this on MSDN and they wanted me to post here.
I have VS 2010 SP 1 loaded in an XP VM. When I start VS to debug a NEW ASP.Net 4.0 C# MasterPage app, I get the following message 3-4 times before I can actually debug my app:
Unable to start program 'http://localhost:3138/Default.aspx
It leaves an IE window open and white which I have to go into task manager and kill.
I am not the only one getting this.
I think it maybe VM related. Thoughts?

Since there is no detailed information about your problem. Based on http://localhost/default.aspx, seem you host your web application on the IIS, but can't browser it. I suggest you to check this toturial about hosting application on IIS:

Right now I am running it locally on a VM. It seems to happen only when I am debugging but doesnt when I do a ctrl-f5.
I also gave all the information I have. It's a very vague error and it happens a lot.

Have you checked the system event log for further errors?

Yes, saw nothing in any logs.

If it doesn’t have the same issue when you run your application with ‘ctrl+F5’, I think it is not the problem of Visual Studio 2010. Perhaps there is something wrong with your VM, you should check the settings in your VM.
hope it helps you,

I agree so any ideas?

Is it XP Pro or XP Home edition?

Because it is related to VM, I think you should check the firewall, anti-virus software and third party tools, or you could have a try reinstall the VM. I hardly guess more about your VM issue, I'm sorry for that.
