I have just installed WIn10 on my new PC. My old runs WinXP and works fine. I access my local website with 'localhost' and it knows it is 'http://localhost:8080/index.php'. On the Win10 machine it doesn't work at all and I can't figure out how to fix it. In IIS Manager / Bindings I have set Type=http, Hostname=localhost, Port=8080 IP=* and Binding Info=' '. I get error "windows sockets registry entries required for network connectivity are missing" and I tried to reset Winsock and restart but it didn't help.
