Reintroduce the use of IIS with Web Site Projects in VS2013
So we upgraded to VS2013 and can no longer run our massive web forms site via IIS. We have to use IIS Express or we cannot debug! What's the point of even having IIS on our systems (which is set up to mirror the live server) if we cannot use it for debugging etc. This seems a really bizarre decision. Note that many of the scenarios of web sites detailed here apply to us http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547590%28v=vs.100%29.aspx
Can you please specify what does not work? You can create Web Site projects and target Full IIS and also open existing projects and target IIS

Really surprised VS 2013 does not allow this. Website projects have many advantages and so does using IIS rather than the limited IIS Express which does not accurately simulate real IIS and is much more bare bones for features and setting up sites. We cannot upgrade to VS 2013. Disappointed as this has been supported in all the recent past versions of VS prior to VS 2013. Please add this back!
