  • Hi harshu288,

    Thanks for posting here.

    Since this forum is to discuss the MSBuild issue(Topics including: usage of MSBuild, build customization, and MSBuild extensibility via tasks, loggers and hosting), it is hard for us to make sure that whether it is related to the MSBuild, the project itself or others, I have no direct solution for this issue, but I could provide you some troubleshootings:

    1. Deleted IISExpress folder in Documents.
    2. Deleted almost everything in temp folder %temp% (may not be necessary but ...)
    3. Went into Control Panel\Programs\Turn windows features off and on and enabled IIS.

    If above not resolve your question, you can open a new thread on ASP.NET forum:
