Having just updated windows 10, which I think updated the ASP.NET components to 4.8/or an update to 4.8, I suddenly started getting Http Error 500’s on every site on localhost, which is a problem for a web developer!

I always run Visual Studio in Administrator mode, as outlined in a blog post from 2016 titled Running Visual Studio as Administrator.
