Unable to connect to development server

Hi All,

Yesterday I was working with one web service project and in that I was required to create a method which calls SharePoint web services.

However till day before yesterday everything was okay. Suddenly now Visual studio has started giving me unable to connect to the development server error.

I tried hard to Google it out, and got so many different answers. Like install SP1, Install SP2, platform related answers, operating system related, framework related, many other tips and tricks. I tried almost everything.

But not sure what went wrong or my visual studio got corrupted or what. However I found a fantastic answer to this problem.

It is just two easy steps to perform. One think is for sure, every time you turn your computer off and then re starts it again and try to build and run, it will give you error. So every time you need to perform this action.

Visit Amit Kumar Singh's post site and follow the two simple steps. Thanks to Amit kumar singh.

Keep the .rar file with you and every time you restart your machine, unrar the file and copy the exe. Steps are mentioned in the site. Go through the post. It is a very useful post.
