I think I had this error before but I cannot remember the solution. I installed ActiveVFP 6.03 using the installer on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64bit. I have the 32bit enabled in the defaultAppPool. I have the application setup as ActiveVFP but the connection is refused when I try to run http://localhost/ActiveVFP/default.avfp.

Does anyone know the solution to this issue? Whatever the solution it would be good to have it added to the documentation because I know I have had this happen before.

The strange thing is that is works if I access the demo page from another computer using The problem only occurs with localhost.

Yes that is correct. I have no problem getting to localhost and I have no problem using the proper website URL. I only have the issue when I try to access the demo using http://localhost/activevfp/default.avfp.

Weird. I used to have this problem a while back when I had a DSL line but localhost didn't work at all for some reason. The only thing I can think of is to check the settings for the virtual directory/web app for activevfp. Maybe a setting was inadvertently changed there.

How about localhost with a different (non avfp) application. Does that work?
