The issue is caused because Visual Studio's web development server needs Microsoft Identity Foundation installed in order to resolve the requested type. This type is needed by Sitefinity to support claims authentication. To resolve the issue open the bin folder of your Sitefinity project and find the Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll file. Copy this file to
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\DevServer\10.0"
for 64 bit operating systems or to
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\DevServer\10.0"
for 32 bit operating systems. After you have copied the file restart Visual Studio.
