Localhost server doesn't work after April 2009 MS Updates
Posted on 2009-04-16
I am unable to run apps in localhost mode all of a sudden after applying the
latest MS updates/patches. I can't run by loading the local server first and
then firing any http;//localhost/isapi/anyprogram.dll/ in either IE7 or the
latest Firefox. Keep getting HTTP 404 (not found) errors even though the dll is physically there. Also can't run it by compiling & linking with the Run | Parameters set correctly (as always).
It loads the server, as it should, but again a 404.
Has anyone else experienced this? There does seem to be a similar issue with
this update regarding ASP.NET running IIS locally, but I don't run IIS.
I tested this with firewalls off and antivirus off with admin rights and also checked the hosts file (OK) and still no go. I am suspecting the update as the culprit but have no way of proving it and have run out of options. Can't degug our development without this working. Any thoughts appreciated.
