Unable to launch the IIS Express Web server

Failed to register URL “http://localhost:63647” for site application. Error description: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process (0x80070020).

1. Open project properties.
2. Choose “Web” on the left hand side.
3. Update the port number in the project URL. Then click yes if you want to update the virtual directory.
VisualStudio_Project URL

4. Save and restart Visual studio, then you should be good to go! =)


File not found & dexDebug failed

Had some problem to build a Cordova app in VS. Tried updating java, Android SDK etc..but still same problem (java.lang file not found and dexDebug failed).

Finally I found out that you can’t have a Cordova project inside a path with ‘åäö’ which I had, i.e path to VS project: “C:\Test\Hambörjare\”. When I changed the path to non ‘åäö’ it started to work! =)

I read that this is a reported bug to the Java team at Oracle but I guess it’s not on the their number one todo list..
