ASP.NET Web Configuration Tool missing in VS2013

I’m using Visual Studio 2013 and as you probably know there is no ASP.NET Web Configuration Tool but Just now i came to know about it. Still i want to access it, so first i want to know why they remove this option. While surfing on net i came to know that this is due to removal of Visual Studio Development Server  (or Cassini) from the product.

Now now let see how we will access our Web Configuration Tool
Through your VS2013 console, copy and paste below code

“C:\Program Files\IIS Express\iisexpress.exe” /path:c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ASP.NETWebAdminFiles /vpath:”/asp.netwebadminfiles” /port:8089 /clr:4.0 /ntlm

Please wait …. don’t exit the command prompt by pressing ‘q’.

Again copy and past the url in a browser and edit ‘[Exact_Project_Path]’ part with your physical application path


That all 🙂
