  • I tried the URL too, but I couldn't find any XML files under 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Sitecore\Sitecore.Rocks.VisualStudio\Connections'. I tried reinstall Sitecore Rocks still have same problem.

  • Can you try C:\Users\{youraccountname}\AppData\Local\Sitecore\Sitecore.Rocks.VisualStudio\Connections. Replace the Administrator with your folder name Sep 19 '18 at 10:10

  • Have you already tried to create the connection in Sitecore Rocks? Sep 19 '18 at 10:18

Have you tried to change the authorization of your website as described in this blogpost by Rob Ahnemann? XHTML

<location path="sitecore/shell/WebService">
        <allow users="?,*" />


  • Yes, but no luck...
