Visual Studio 2013 e 2015: Unable to start debugging on the web server. Could not start ASP.NET debugging - Come risolvere

In this post I’ll try to create a comprehensive list of all the Visual Studio build numbers/version IDs and default paths, including any available/released/known RTMs and Update. If you see something that’s missing, please leave a comment and I’ll be happy to update it.

  2. Pingback: Visual Studio 2017, VS2015, VS2013, VS2012, VS2008, VS2005, VS2003 and VS2002 Offline Installers & ISO files for download (All Versions)
  3. This is handy — thanks. There used to be a good list in MSDN, but it seems like it was recently trimmed, and you can only really see VS2016 , VS2017, and VS2019.
