I have got a ASP.NET web site project in VS2012. When I debug it with VS2012, it starts as http://localhost:51510/VAWebService/Services.asmx.
With VS2012, the port 51510 and the path VAWebService is set in the .sln file, Keys VWDPort and VirtualPath.
I have to port this to VS2017. I can open the sln in VS2017 and all seems to work, but when I start to debug it, it starts under http://localhost:51510/Services.asmx
The VAWebService is lacking in the URL.
I've tried to change stuff in the .vs/config/applicationhost.config file, like it is described there: How to change website URL in Visual Studio 2015
The file applicationhost.config has been created by VS2017 alone. In this file, under sites, there are 2 sites mentioned. One which is called WebSite1 and has nothing to do with my stuff and one which is called VAWebService.
Under bindings there is the entry bindingInformation="*:51510:localhost", so this refers to my site. And obviouosly, VS has taken the port 51510 from the sln file. But it has not taken the VirtualPath.
Now I exit VS2017, make sure that no iisexpress is running anymore and in the applicationhost.config I change the line
<virtualDirectory path="/" physicalPath="C:\branches\Trunk\VAServer\VAWebService" /> to <virtualDirectory path="/VAWebService" physicalPath="C:\branches\Trunk\VAServer\VAWebService" />
I reopen the sln. The first thing I notice is that on the properties of the web site, the URL still is http://localhost:51510. It is grey and I cannot change it.
When I rebuild all and start to debug, I get an error message in german,
I've translated it here, via DeepL:
HTTP ERROR 500.19. The requested page cannot be accessed because the associated configuration data is invalid for the page.

When I click "More Info", that page says that 0x8007000d is caused by a malformed xml element in the Web.config or the Applicationhost.config file.
I don't know what to do anymore. How can I get this page to start as
