    Hi all,

    The RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2008 Live Examples have suddenly stopped working on my laptop, running Vista and IIS 7.

    I uninstalled them and then re-installed them, but that didn't seem to help.

    When I run the Live Examples from the Visual Studio project (accessed off Start > All Programs > Telerik, I get the following error:

    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

    What gives? Do the Telerik products not work with Vista or IIS or Visual Studio 2008 ? I need to get to work, and instead here I am trying to get the Telerik controls to work.

    Any ideas what's going on?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jason

    Hello Jason-

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble. The RadControls should work in the environment you've described- Vista, IIS7, VS2008. When you say "suddenly," do you indicate that the demos were running fine on your machine and then stopped? I've usually found that sudden changes are result of some other change to your environment (such as security settings, additional software, etc.), so if you can provide any additional details, that will help.

    Also, you mention Q1 2008- is that the version you're using? Just curious if you've tried a more current build to see if you have better luck. Q1 2009 was release a couple of week ago and it would be great if you could try that installer and see if you have better results.

    Hope that helps-
    Todd

    Todd thanks for your reply. Turns out this was an issue with my hosts file (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts).

    I replaced the line

    ::1 localhost

    with

    127.0.0.1       localhost

    And that got the Visual Studio development web server to open the page.

    Hope this helps someone else!
