'View In Browser' - error: Can't display the web page

 Just installed VS 2008 and started to view the ASP.Net videos to experiment with the sample code.

Win/XP Pro SP-2

Verizon/Yahoo DSL

  A simple web site was created with a label, checkbox and login control.  When I click on the 'start debugging' arrow, the website displays correctly with the following URL:


It makes NO difference if  'Use dynamic ports' is set to True or False for the project...

If I try to view a page using the 'View In Browser' method or attempt to invoke the ASP.NET Configuration Tool (from the login control, or Solutions Panel, or Menu option),  The  browser starts and the following warning is displayed:

____________________Yahoo Browser message ___________________________________

"Warning: the page you are about to visit may attempt to request your personal information (such as passwords, credit card numbers and social security numbers) for unauthorized use or may otherwise attempt to harm your computer.

Malicious web sites can use this type of address in order to disguise themselves.

The destination may appear to be:


but the actual destination is:


Do you still want to open the webpage.  (Yes and NO Buttons)


When I select the 'Yes" button, the browser (Explorer 7) tries to load the page, but navigation fails because the page can't be found, the browser terminates and throws me back into the VS Studio IDE.

Looking at the browser history for %22http - this is what was passed to the browser:


The '%22http://' preceeds what I think should be the correct URL (just guessing....) The same result happens weather I create the website using the 'File System" or as 'localhost" in the Win/XP IIS.

Note: I am creating the website as a Net.Framework 3.5, but the ASP.NET Configuration Tool is located at:

Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ASP.NETWebAdminFiles (I assume this is OK since it is not in the 3.5 folder...)

Subsequently, I also installed Visual Web Developer Express 2005 - SP 1 and have the same results.

Are you using customized browser ("Yahoo Browser")? Try setting regular IE as your default browser in the system.

Thanks for your response!!  You are correct in that Yahoo uses a customized version of IE-7:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\browser\ybrowser.exe"

vs MS IE-7:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

I changed the 'default' browser to IE 7, rebooted and tested.  As before the app runs fine when executed as F5 (Run (debug mode or not). It does use the Yahoo Browser and I get a message informing that Yahoo Browser in not the default browser. I click on 'No" to keep IE as the default browser.

When I use the 'View In Browser' option or Admin for the 'Login' control, I get a message informing that Yahoo Browser in not the default browser. I click on 'No" to keep IE as the browser and then the Yahoo Browser launches with the same warning popup and unable to load page.

Looked at all the registry entries for Visual Studio, but there is no direct reference to the browser pgm name. Aslo, did a search for aspx to see if a 'File Type' Open List might default to the Yahoo Brower.. no luck there...  No reference in the Visual Developer 'Options' either.

I think your suggestion is correct, but somehow Visual Studio is bypassing the default browser and launches the Yahoo Browser...  VS has to be looking at some registry entry as a reference...

You are correct, VS maintains its own list of browsers since you may use one browser for general Web access and may wish to use another one for debugging. To change VS browser, right click on aspx ot html file in the Solution Explorer, choose Browse With..., select IE7 in the list and click 'Set As Default'

I right clicked on the aspx and project  to access the 'Browse With" selection. 

It Listed: Enternal Web Browser

              Internet Explorer (Default)

              Yahoo! Browser

Even though Internet Explorer showed 'default', I assumed that was a product of setting the option within Internet Explorer as per your earlier reply.

Selected IE and clicked on the <Set as Default> button...  Tested the "View in Browser' and admin access via the 'Login' control..

It worked fine!!!  Thanks for your help and quick responses..

regarding this issue I have the same problem and changing the IE7 to default browser does not solves the problem for me. I have this problem since I had some errors with debuging in IE7 and installed Mozila Firefox 3 as default browser. Then "View In Browser" worked for some time by trying more than once, but now does not work at all. I already made IE7 as default but it is same.

Differences between a 'Web Site' and a 'Web Application' w.r.t. .Design namespaces?
I have a web site project which I want to convert to a web application. I noticed that the website has references to System.Design, System.Drawing.Design and System.Web.Extensions.Design.When I create a new Web Application project none of these Design namespaces are referenced. So, when converting a web site project to a web application should I leave out those references?  I ask this because I just read Scott G's tips for converting a Web Site to a Web Application and the first point he makes is that one needs to include, in one's new web application, all the same references us...

Can you display another web site's web page in your web page without leaving your site?
