Why is this newly created MVC application throwing this error?

0

All I did was make a new MVC project in Visual Studio called Fadi's Project. I didn't touch any code but it threw this error when I ran the application. I tried debugging but no breakpoints where being hit. I tried to find a solution to my specific problem and while there are many like it none of the other fixes where the same.

I think it is the apostrophe in your website name. Take that out and try again.

as it is saying in the error itself: The given assembly name or codebase was invalid. Change that name and try again
