Sorry that didn't help.

Here's another experiment.  Download Apache HTTP Server for Windows.   
After all, it's a world-class web server, and if it works (or  
doesn't), that might help you figure out what's up with your system,  
if it's your system.  I notice the Apache HTTP Server win32/ 
README.html has a bunch of advice, which might be applicable to your  

As for the PLT web-server on Windows, I installed DrScheme v301 on a  
Windows XP Pro system, changed the port number from 80 to 5915 (just  
a test), and ran web-server.exe.  The pages came up just fine on  
http://localhost:5915/ .  My only trouble/complaint was having to use  
Task Manager to stop web-server.  I thought I could type "web-server  
stop", but that is not supported.
