SYMPTOMS

When you try to create a Microsoft ASP.NET project in Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual Studio may stop responding. You may also experience the following symptoms:
  • When you try to browse any .aspx page, Microsoft Internet Explorer stops responding.
  • If you monitor CPU usage, you notice that CPU usage for the Inetinfo.exe process is high.
  • When you type the following command at a command prompt, the command takes a long time to finish:
    aspnet_regiis -i
  • In Task Manager, you notice a process that is named Bmwebcfg.exe.
This issue may occur if Cingular Connection Manager or PCS Connections Manager is installed on your computer.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Inetinfo.exe process may load the Bmwebcfg.exe process or the Bmnet.dll file. When this behavior occurs, the Inetinfo.exe process may stop responding.

Visual Studio uses the Inetinfo.exe process when you create ASP.NET projects. Therefore, Visual Studio may stop responding. Additionally, Internet Explorer may stop responding when you browse ASP.NET Web pages.

Note Certain malicious software applications may also install the Bmnet.dll file.
