Description

In a file-system Web site, I cannot enable the Base URL field, in the Server section of Start Options on the Property Pages form. It is always disabled. The UI of the Server section has changed considerably in VS 2013 compared to VS 2012 (Update 2).

[Edit] I actually opened my file-system Web site from IIS, via File | Open Web Site | Local IIS. I'm simply trying to use my local IIS 8 as the default server, which has long been more hassle than it should be in Visual Studio.

We have fixed this issue in VS2013 Winter Update (will be released online around 1/20/2014).
Please install the new update at that time. Let us know if there is still any issue. Thanks!

Since upgrading to VS2013 from VS2013 one of my projects is now experiencing this problem, others work fine however and I am unable to determine the differences between the two that may be causing this. Additionally the OK button on the Start Options section fails to close the window in certain instances, you have to switch to another tab before it functions as expected.

I completely agree with the statement that using IIS as the default sever has LONG been more of a hassle than it should be in Visual Studio.

I found a solution. You need to open your .sln and edit the file with your custom server like this :

Project("{E24C65DC-7377-472B-9ABA-BC803B73C61A}") = "Project name", "your custom server url", "{029F2DEE-E3D8-488E-9719-AA0C4B9DB9BD}"
And set UseIISExpress to false.
