-------------- Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:
2.0.50727.42; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.42

I am writing the steps for removing this error and successfully running the website.

- If you have visual studio 2005 is open, close it
- Go tot the ASP.NET temporary folder for v2.0 of the framework
\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0\Temporary ASpNET pages
- Remove the folder for your application (or all of them)
- Reset IIS (on a command line window, >iisreset) [not always needed,
but I had to use it sometimes]
- First Browse your page from IE (http://localhost/your app)
- Then reopen Visual studio

And it should work now

Link where i found the solution is given below:
