Visual Studio 2013 - IIS Express - Multiple Site's At One Time

I would like to have multiple versions of the Orchard Source code open in several instances of Visual Studio 2013. Unfortunately I am unable to view more than one Orchard project via IIS Express at the same time. Is this a fact of life? Curious how others overcome this. I attempted to declare a unique port by right-clicking Orchard.Web and editing the port setting but to no avail. With one site running, if I try and run a second site I get the error attached. "Failed to register URL..."

Thanks in advance for any help here.

Thought I'd fixed and posted, turns out it was a temporary fix.

Orchard runs a parallel instance of IIS on port 44300? The conflict is around this port and I'm wondering if this can be overridden somehow. Here's what the redundancy looks like:

You can change the SSL port number per web project (select the web project, hit F4).

THANK YOU.

I wasn't able to change the port - grayed out - but was able to set "Enable SSL" to "False", clearing the value and allowing me to run multiple sites concurrently. Hurray!

Ah you're right, you can't change the port from there. If you at some point DO want to change the port number, check out this article: http://truncatedcodr.wordpress.com/2011/09/30/how-to-change-iis-express-ssl-port-without-webmatrix/
