Greg, I’ve reached out internally to find the cause of the issue below.

Can you do one thing for me, can you choose Help -> Send Feedback -> Report a 
Problem and tell us that you were experiencing crashes/delays? No need to repro 
the issue, this will let us capture some data to see the issues you were 
running into.

Subject: VS2017 start page

Folks, after upgrading to Visual Studio 2017 last weekend many weird things 
went haywire, of which most are fixed by one bumbling means or another. The 
weirdest thing by far was the Consolas normal font disappearing, which caused 
all my DOS prompts and the VS edit and output windows to show italic. I had to 
copy the missing font over from a Win10 VM. Another trap was the default 
"lightweight" solution load, which came out of nowhere and I didn't even notice 
it for hours. It caused VS2017 to randomly crash or stall during solution load 
and close. Once I turned it globally off the problems vanished.

My last remaining problem is running any 
 or WebApi project from inside VS2017 tells me the start page is not found. It 
doesn't matter if it's in debug or release, local or express IIS, elevated or 
not, or what the start page file type is, I just get this popup (example):

[Inline images 1]

The project then seems to keep running, but with no start page UI.

The same page and url runs normally in all other ways, just not in VS2017. It's 
not permissions. I'm out of ideas. Anyone seen this?
