Hi,
This might be the probelm with the port no try this step

Step 1: Select the "Tools->External Tools" menu option in VS or Visual Web Developer. This will allow you to configure and add new menu items to your Tools menu.


Step 2: Click the "Add" button to add a new external tool menu item. Name it "WebServer on Port 8010" (or anything else you want).


Step 3: For the "Command" textbox setting enter this value: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\WebDev.WebServer.EXE (note: this points to the web-server that VS usually automatically runs).


Step 4: For the "Arguments" textbox setting enter this value: /port:8010 /path:$(ProjectDir) (or any port you like)


Step 5: Select the "Use Output Window" checkbox (this will prevent the command-shell window from popping up.

I also have this problem. I did step by step your solution but after clicking apply there is the message box: "The command is not a valid executable. Would you like to change the command". So I also checked command path out and didn't find the "WebDev.WebServer.EXE" file?

Help me !!
