My code below keeps stopping at the context line
Dim ctx As HttpListenerContext = listener.GetContext()

No error...no exception..it just exits.

Any ideas?

        Using listener As New HttpListener()
            listener.AuthenticationSchemes = AuthenticationSchemes.Negotiate
            listener.Prefixes.Add("https://localhost/")
            listener.Start()

            Dim ctx As HttpListenerContext = listener.GetContext()
            ctx.Response.StatusCode = 200
            Dim name As String = ctx.Request.QueryString("name")

            Dim writer As New StreamWriter(ctx.Response.OutputStream)
            writer.WriteLine("<P>Hello, {0}</P>", name)

            writer.WriteLine("<ul>")
            For Each header As String In ctx.Request.Headers.Keys
                writer.WriteLine("<li><b>{0}:</b> {1}</li>", header, ctx.Request.Headers(header))
            Next
            writer.WriteLine("</ul>")

            writer.Close()
            ctx.Response.Close()
            listener.[Stop]()
        End Using

If you enclose it in try catch block then does it go to catch block?

And....
