[QUOTE=The Bespectacled One] Did a bit more digging around here and solved the problem--my "hosts" file was configured in a way that didn't allow C2 to use the localhost address. Just in case someone else is having a similar problem, here are the steps I took to fix the issue:

First, I located the folder that contained my 'hosts' file (c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/) and opened the actual file using Notepad++ (but Notepad will do, if that's what you've got). In my case, there were two entries near the top that were of particular interest to me:

#       localhost
#::1             localhost

Notice the '#'? That means it's a comment (i.e doesn't do anything). Delete the #'s. I had a couple entries following this one that were NOT commented out, but used the same address ( I'm fairly sure I'll need them later, so I simply put the pound symbol (#) next to those to comment them out, as well as save them if I need them later. Finally, I saved the 'hosts' file.

HTTP preview now works, as does the mirroring/flipping [/QUOTE]

thanks man! I was having a bad time trying to figure out why the preview wasn't working anymore. It bring me another problems but I'll look at it later.

I'm currently having the same problem with getting a gray screen when I try to run my project. Did you ever figure out how to solve this?
