VS2003 Suddenly Stops Seeing Localhost

    I'm running Windows Server 2003, IIS 6.0, and VS 2003. I have an
    ASP.NET project I previously created, and went to open it back up to
    make modifications. Now VS won't open http://localhost

    When I try to open that location, it just goes to "My Documents"

    I haven't changed anything on the machine, I made sure the VS users
    group had full access to wwwroot. I ran aspnet_regiis -i to reinstall.
    I tried substituting my IP address for localhost. Nothing has worked.

    Help! I need to recompile some small changes in this app and the entire
    team is breathing down my neck wondering why I can't open up code on my
    local machine.

  2. Did you ever get this sorted?

    I have a similar problem with localhost and I am about to format my system
    as there is no help that appears to be forthcoming. I think it's in the too
    hard basket.

    If you did find a solution I would appreciate hearing about it.

    Thanks

    Oddly enough, enabling the telnet service solved it. I'm thinking that
    telnet depends on some underlying service that VS uses as well.
