In Virtual Studio 2013 Microsoft have removed the "Website Administration Tool" which was one of the tools I used the most in the previous versions, mainly for controlling website user accounts, admin privileges, etc. I know why it why removed but it's
still a real pain.
I say removed, even though they haven't really deleted it, just (for some very strange reason) they have made it "really" difficult to set-up.
To get it back in VS 2013 and 2013 Express you have to set it up though CMD Prompt (I thought that had gone out years ago).
The details of how to set it up are here.
I, like many people, have tried and tried to make this work but I still can't get it running.
Very simple (I hope) question
What do I put in the CMD Prompt and what do I put in the browser?
My setup is very simple.
VS was downloaded from MS in the default normal way so it was placed into
C:\Program Files \IIS Express
When I create a website (for example WebSite1) the Web Config File will run from
C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Websites\WebSite1\Web config
When I view (for example Default.aspx) a file in the local browser it will open in
ANY help would be really appreciated as I have lost 2 days of my life trying to get this work.

1. Open the Command Prompt, enter the following prompt
2. Open your browser
http://localhost:10086/asp.netwebadminfiles/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\Website&applicationUrl=/

I have gone back to using VS 2012.
REALLY don't know why MS got rid of this really good tool.
