Running Kentico in Visual Studio 2013

As we have started to migrate from Visual Studio 2012 to Visual Studio 2013 at BizStream, I’ve constantly run into an issue where trying to run Kentico through the debugger causes a compilation error.

Compilation Error In Visual Studio 2013

This is not a bug in Kentico, but a documented issue with Visual Studio 2013. Microsoft reports that it will be fixed in a future update, but that was 8 months ago, and the update has still not come out. The old Kentico forums provided two workarounds for this issue.

  1. Add the following key to the web.config

  2. Disable the Browser Link feature in Visual Studio 2013
