Preview no longer working


#1

Hi, within in the last 24 hours the local preview functionality has stopped working. I’m running 8.1.0.3388 on Windows 10, and don’t recall making any other system changes (although it’s a corporate machine, so I can’t guarantee something hasn’t updated behind the scenes). When I click preview to launch Chrome, the left hand nav loads fine, but the actual page is replaced with a little grey sad face and the message “127.0.0.1 didn’t send any data”.

Have tried reinstalling over the top, and a complete uninstall/reinstall and it’s made no difference. Have tried other browsers and they don’t work either. Does anyone have any suggestions? My next idea was to upgrade to 9, but then I’ll force the rest of my team to upgrade to, so that’s the last option really. Preview working for other users on the similar machines/versions, etc

@AndyWestley since it’s a corporate machine, i’m thinking maybe the port 32767 is blocked / taken by company policy, but axure relies on this port to render the preview

Yes, I wondered that, but as far as I can make out, using netstat and task manager, Axure has grabbed the port and should be OK.
