MVC3 Ap in Visual Studio 2010- Changed to use Local IIS Web Server and can not get it back to VS dev server

I changed from running Use Visual Studio Development Server to Local IIS Web Server becasue I read it would create the virtual directories properly - it did not - once I navigate out of the account area I get HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Requested URL https://localhost:443/xxx/Index

Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\xxx\Index

I have been googling and trying to get it to work, but can not and can no longer debug - Now I am trying to change it back and it keeps starting in Local IIS Web. I have HOSED myself and don't know where to go from here. Thank you

In terms of getting back to using the VS web server you should just need to:

  1. Right click on the web project in VS
  2. Selection properties
  3. Go to the web tab
  4. Select "use visual studio web server" radio button

For the sake of not leaving questions unanswered, I tried all of the suggestions above, and many more, and got nowhere. I was in an early phase at the time, and I had to move on, so I ended up creating a new solution, and porting things over. Not the best idea, but I had to go forward, and I had taken enough time. It is still living on my machine, and I plan to go back and figure it out at some point. Hopefully, I'll have more understanding and will be able to post what I did wrong so someone else can save some time. Thanks all for attempting.
