Hello,
I have a very similar problem with version 1.7.3 under Windows XP sp3
Apache is running
MySql is running
No problem detected with Port-Checq
But when I try to connect to localhost ..... nothing ... no error message but waiting respond
It seems that server Apache is found but no answer (if I stop Apache then I have a message connexion reinitialized during loading the page.
Regards and thanks if anybody has an idea!

Hello,
I have solved my problem! Perhaps your problem is the same.
An application, I don't know which one, had modified parameters of winsock.

I have reinitialized the winsock catalogue and, now, all is OK. I can connect to localhost.

To reinitialized winsock use the command line:
netsh winsock reset

Regards
