After a long time, I will try to start adding new items to my blog.
I started working for another organisation and I have been on vacation etc. etc.
In my new job I am doing a conversion for an application from .NET Framework 1.1 to .NET Framework 2.0.
It is an ASP.NET application containing around 20 projects.

After the conversion to a IIS Website in Visual Studio 2005 I hit the F5 key and got the message:

Unable to start debugging on the web server.
The Microsoft Visual studio Remote Debugging monitor (MSVSMON.EXE) does not appear to be running on the remote computer.

Visual Studio 2005 Remote Debugger
After searching around for a while MVSSMON.Exe is the application that resides in the Windows Start Menu under 'Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 > Visual Studio Tools' and is named: 'Visual Studio 2005 Remote Debugger'.
When I started the 'Visual Studio 2005 Remote Debugger Configuration Wizard', I could run the apllication as a service and debugging works always.
It seems that when you use the IIS Website model to develop webapps the remote debugger needs to be running (Visual Studio 'thinks' it is debugging a remote machine).
