I cant debug a Web Application on VS2012 running on Windows 8.
I just start a new ASP.Net Web Forms Application using .Net 4.0, and after creating the project and press F5, i receive that message:
"Unable to start debugging on the web server. Could not start ASP.NET debugging. More information may be available by starting the project without debugging."
Also, that error only happens when using my local IIS Web Server. When using VS Development Server that same error doesnt happens.
Anyone knows what can be that?

IT appears to be you don't have anonymous auth or necessary authentication mode not enabled. Also some other permission issue or wrong runtime app pool you are using.
You have to set necessary authentication settings for your IIS Virtual directory or Application.
Please go to "inetmgr.exe" -> go to your application -> Authentication and check necessary auth enabled.
Also please confirm with what Application Pool your application is configured in the IIS.

Hi, are you using IIS 8/ Windows 8/ Visual Studio 2012?
I've tried all those options that you sent me.
But still not working.

My VS2012 is debugging perfectly right now. Like i remember, try to run the VS2012 as an Administrator. But if you have the VS2012 shortcut on the taskbar, don't try to open a recent project shortcut, this won't work. If this solution works for you, please
mark it as answered.
