Failed to register URL “http://10.X.X.X:11111″ for site “XXX” application “/”

Hey everyone,

I’ve just upgraded to Visual Studio 2013 and ran into the following while trying to run IIS express:

Failed to register URL “http://10.1.1.2:53034” for site “XXX” application “/”. Error description: Access is denied. (8×80070005).

The solution ended up being pretty obvious, I didn’t have permission. Run it with administrative privileges and the error goes away.
