I was trying to build a project that I inherited (ASP C# ~.Net4) and I got the following error
Please try changing the HTTP port to 8732 or running as Administrator.
System.ServiceModel.AddressAccessDeniedException: HTTP could not register [url]. Your process does not have access rights to this namespace (see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70353 for details). —> System.Net.HttpListenerException: Access is denied
System.Net.HttpListenerException (0x80004005): Access is denied
All the issue was is that Visual Studio could not access certain files since it does not have administrator access. Run as administrator, and you should no longer have a problem. Also go to properties (Of Visual Studio) and select the run as administrator for future reference so you don’t run into the issue again.
- To run as an administrator, right click Visual Studio and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.
- To run as administrator all the time, right click Visual Studio, then go to properties in the context menu
- Got to the compatibility tab, then select Run this program as an administrator.
