I am having some problems with IE8 and a web domain on localhost.
If I open http://localhost/localstart.asp in IE the page opens correctly

If I open a page http://localhost:8080/mydir/index.a5w the page fails with an error
500 Internal Server Error
The server encountered a fatal error processing this request and could not continue.

I can open http://localhost:8080/mydir/index.a5w in Firefox and Safari without problems.

The domain used to run OK in IE8

The .a5w pages are running with the Alpha5 V10 server.

Does anyone know how I can get IE8 running with this server again please? IE8 runs normally otherwise.

Thank you
