SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, you create multiple pages in different folders in an ASP.NET-connected application.
  • These pages use the same name.
  • You set a breakpoint in one of these pages.
In this scenario, a significant delay may occur when you try to debug the ASP.NET-connected application. Additionally, this delay may cause a time-out error. In this case, you receive the following error message:
Unable to start debugging on the web server. The operation has timeout.

CAUSE
