I am creating an ASP .Net Core (2.0) MVC application within Visual Studio 2017 which was working absolutely fine.
After turning off my computer yesterday and coming back to my application today, I now receive this browser error when I start the application in chrome without debugging.
Running dotnet run within the directory of the application, I can access the site just fine. It is just when I run it via Visual Studio/IIS Express I get this error.
HTTP Error 502.5 - Process Failure
The application builds and compiles just fine. I have also cleaned the solution.
Looking in the event logs I find:
Within my output window in Visual Studio 2017 I recieve this message under ASP NET CORE WebServer
Failed to initialize CoreCLR, HRESULT: 0x80131534
What I have tried:
My setup was working perfectly yesterday and suddenly is not.
Thank you for your time. I hope we can find a solution.
We finally found the issue! After logging on to the machine as a different user, we saw a warning that the main user had ignored initially. There was a 0 byte file in the root of the directory named "Program" with no file extension. It appears that this causes some sort of issue when VSIISExeLauncher.exe is invoked through Visual Studio. (Note it would work if executed from the command prompt). After deleting the file, everything worked!
We do not know how this file was placed there for certain, but suspect it was some sort of copy error when the user was pulling in files from his old hard drive.
I don't know if anyone else will come across this, but if so hopefully this helps!
Maybe you need install previous versions of .NET Core, isn't it? I installed here and it works now. I had only .NET Core 2.0 installed and I realized that applications with 1.1 stopped so when running. In Windows' event logs I've had the same error registered.
I have hit a very similar issue with ASP.net Core 2.0. I had copied my VS project to a new one, and I was getting this error message.
After doing some research, I was able to determine that the
nlog.config file was not copied into the bin > Debug > net461 folder. Once I did this, I was able to run my application.
I found it by running dotnet run from the command line on my project where the csproj files live.
Had same issue yesterday (windows 10). Solved it this way:
In my case, my project was setup as a website in IIS and the file "bin\IISSupport\VSIISExeLauncher.exe" was missing in the project's directory.
I simply selected "IIS" when debugging the project in Visual Studio 2019 and it generated the missing file. It also generated 2 text files (IISExeLauncherArgs.txt, pidfile.txt) in the IISSupport folder, made changes to my web.config file, and my project ran successfully.
After that I was able to access the local website that was setup in IIS without running it in Visual Studio.
