Localhost wont work


 I am new to .NET. I have installed VS 2008 and was ready to test this. I created a web application under VS 2008 and tried to run it. But when internet explorer starts after running the project, there is only a message like this.

"This website can not show in Internet Explorer.

You can try to diagnose connectionproblem" (excuse my english)


When i try to press the diagnose link i get this.

"Localhost is not configured to make a connection for the port 56175 with this computer"

My windows has norwegian language, so this is not so good translation.

I am running VS 2008 under Windows Vista Ultimate with the last updates.

Have installed DKK 2003 (or something)

When i started a windows form, it was running fine, but not the web application (web projects)


Can someone please help me. I really want to learn VS 2008 and web developing.

I found the solution in you link.

I had to change the host file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

::1  localhost

This is an IpV6 entry. And i put a # in front of it.


Thank you so much for helping me. You are an angel.

Visual Basic.NET or Visual Studio.NET?
OK, this has probably been asked before... I'm a student looking to cut my costs, and I can do this by just purchasing Visual Basic.NET as opposed to the fully-fledged Visual Studio.NET application. Of course, I'll only be able to program in VB, but that's fine with me. I wanted to know if all of the ASP.NET specific options are available, such as using a WYSIWYG editor? I'd also like to know if VB.NET has IntelliSense, or that's a specific option only available to Visual Studio.NET users. Thanks in advance. I'd have to believe that VB.Net has intellisense. What is the price d...
