Co-worker can debug on server but I can't

P: n/a
Error message: "Unable to start debugging on the web server. Unable to map
the debug start page to a machine name."

I can no longer run the debugger from my local PC for a project on our web
server. You know, F5 in Visual Studio. I can run in debug mode for a
project on my local web server.

The problem began one day about 3 weeks ago when I ran the project in debug
mode and somehow ended up breaking the .NET framework. Thank you Visual
Studio! I was able to repair the framework but I am unable to debug. My
co-worker oddly enough can run the project in debug mode.

So the problem appears to be something with my computer. I am running
Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2. Oh how I long to get back to being able to
debug. Please help with suggestions on what I might try to fix the problem.

Thanks,
Steve

In IIS is the application running as a web app? Properties --> Create

Yes it is a web app. I can start the app without debugging but cannot start
the debugger on my machine. My co-worker can run the project in debug mode.
