Once running ASP.NET 4.x application built in Visual Studio 2013 I am getting the below exception.
I have tried to disable the PageInspector by removing page inspector assembly
<assemblies> <remove assembly="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.PageInspector.Loader, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/> </assemblies>
and adding this configuration to app settings
<appSettings> <add key="PageInspector:ServerCodeMappingSupport" value="Disabled"/> </appSettings>

Is there any way how to avoid the exception? Thanks a lot for any suggestions
I disabled browser link in VS 2013 and was able to see the actual cause of the error. It is usually something underlying when browser link is set. You can see how to disable it here: http://www.poconosystems.com/software-development/how-to-disable-browser-link-in-visual-studio-2013/
There are multiple reasons why the
System.Web.HttpUnhandledException (0x80004005): Exception of type 'System.Web.HttpUnhandledException' was thrown. - System.InvalidOperationException: Stack empty. Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.PageInspector.Runtime.WebForms.SelectionMappingRenderTraceListener.EndRendering(TextWriter writer, Object renderedObject) ...
After adding as proposed:
<appSettings> <add key="PageInspector:ServerCodeMappingSupport" value="Disabled"/> ... </appSettings>
I noticed I had duplicate selected item on a dropdown list creating the issue.
I have found the problem. There was changed way how to generate IDs of controls in GridView from default to
Which resulted in the exception. Not sure why the real exception was hidden by PageInspector stack empty. Just reverting the change to original resolved the issue.
Now the exception is different (but once GridView settings is back to original this disapper too)
System.ArgumentException: An entry with the same key already exists.
I've also seen this problem in some web apps running on dev machines using Visual Studio 2013 with "Browser Link" enabled.
In multiple cases that I have seen, leaving Browser Link enabled causes all sorts of issues, both client script and security warnings, and server exceptions like this one (annoying thing is that it appears to be enabled by default, thanks Msft!)
In my case (ASP.NET 4.6, Visual Studio 2015) I commented an asp text control and added a new asp drop down list but did not updated the AssociatedControlID of the associated label.
on changing the AssociatedControlID to newly added asp drop down list ID my problem was fixed.
We started VisualStudio 2015 (vs2015) from VisualStudio 2012 solution file and while building all the projects didnot build. This was due to the Enable Browser Link option enabled by default. I disabled the Enable Browser Link option and Re-built the solution which built all the projects successfully. After this I fired up the url in a browser and Boom it worked! For those who have similar scenario like mine. give it a whirl !
In my case, because I had so many issues migrating a website from VS2002 to VS2015, I decided to create a new project on VS2015 and transfer all webforms from the old project (VS2002) to the new one (VS2015).
The new project had a Site.Master page, which already has a tag. Because I was transferring old webforms without modification, they already had a tag too, so each page trying to load had two tags inside.
When I removed the tag on each page, leaving only the one on Site.Master page, the problem was solved.
I hope this helps.
I face this problem while selecting different dropdown value and below is the solution of the problem
First clear the selected value for dropdown and then enable other dropdown value selection
dropdown.ClearSelection(); dropdown.Items.FindByValue(result.Birthday.Value.Year.ToString()).).Selected = true;
