unable to install on local host win 7 64 bit

Jul 5, 2012 at 5:56 AM

hi,

i had successfully installed shopcartnet on my hosting provider.

but i am unable to do so on my local host running win 7 64 bit.

i tried to install it in inetpub/wwwroot directory - no success - error invalid url

on same machine when using host file url http://shoppingcart. - error invalid url

the problem with installer after admin infomation provided and goes to next page

it asks for store url

i tried

http://localhost/shoppingcart  -  error invalid address

when i moved code from there and install in c drive ofcourse adding a entry in host file and a clean db and source.

so url i tried http://shoppingcart - same error invalid url

there is a serious bug in this software which only allow to host with extensions like .com , .net like.

it is rather awkward to do custmization etc on live store.

please note i am no expert in computers these are my observations.

any help will be appreciated.

Shopping Cart .Net is not domain restricted in any way. In fact, this is how we develop it in Visual Studio. I had the same issue with other local projects. Turned out that my wireless network was blocking localhost. This might be the case with you as well. Anyway, I cannot say for sure without looking at your screen, event log and network.

 

Thanks
