While the same project opens in another machine.

Steps taken by me to solve the problem
•Installed IIS
•Given permisssion to "inetpub" folder
•Uninstalled IIS and installed IIS Express

All the above steps failed.

There's a post on the Microsoft website that has a probable solution : http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/1d5cb9c7-af77-4bcd-8421-e813aff88bd3/help-with-visual-studio-2012-error-unable-to-access-the-iis-metabase?forum=visualstudiogeneral

Looks like it's an old issue that is run into now and then. If that doesn't help, let us know, it would be nice to know what to do to fix this.

Ah, another reason why I left Visual Studio behind. I'm sorry, if that dindn't work, you might have to visit MSDN and submit a post to their forum, it's obviously something that's not set up correctly. Sorry I couldn't be of help.
