    I'm running Vista SP1, VS2005 asp.net. I had no problem with the debugger
    webserver until maybe a week or so ago. This was after installing automatic
    updates. The debugger webserver stopped working so I restored my system to
    the last checkpoint in February. Now my debugger webserver is working again
    but I'm not sure which automatic update wrecked it. I am afraid to
    re-install those "critical" updates since I really do need my debugger to
    work. Any thoughts or knowledge about what caused this and what updates I
    can safely install would be appreciated. Thanks Ellie

    Best you repost this to either the vstudio.general vstudio.setup
    vstudio.net.debug newsgroups where you probably will get a more precise and
    comprehensive answer to you issue which they are aware of

    You should not be doing auto-updates. You should be doing manual
    updates. By doing that, you can view the description of an update before
    applying it to pin-point which one could have caused problems and/or to
    determine if you wanted the update to begin with.

    The solution is removing the next line in the windows host fil
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\host

    ::1 localhos

    This is an IpV6 entry. Put a # in front of it.

    Instead of commenting this IpV6 entry adding the following IpV4 entr
    above this line also helps

    127.0.0.1 localhos

    o
    Commented out the lin

    ::1 LocalHos

    with a # in the hosts file and it now works
