# Missing Asp.Net webAdmin configuration option in Visual Studio 2013

If you are still working with WebForms and the FormsAuthentication in visual studio 2013, you are probably missing the option Asp.Net Configuration which fires a tool to configure users and groups for your asp.net webapplication.

Sorry for the dutch screenshot by the way. But this is the tool that I am referring to.

I have found this post about manually starting IIS Express to manage it and I had some problems with it, so that is the reason that I am blogging about it. To help others, but also as a reference for myself if I have this issue again.

1. Open Command Prompt (Windows key + X, or Windows key + R, cmd <enter>)
2. Navigate to the IIS Express folder (cd C:\Program Files\IIS Express <enter>)
3. Copy paste this:
iisexpress.exe /path:C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ASP.NETWebAdminFiles /vpath:"/webadmin" /port:12345 /clr:4.0 /ntlm
You can close IIS Express in the console with Q if you are done. I hope that this option will be put back in Visual Studio 2013 update 1 or something for all those webform developers.
