I have successfully installed OpenERP 7.0 on my Windows 8. But when I run the openerp-server, I get an error message saying, "Errno 10013, An attemp was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions". I tried to google to find the answer, I run the program as administrator, but it did not run and showed the same result. I also tried to turn off the firewall, but same problem occured again. Is there anything I shoul do?

I have made the allinone installation.

Some help would be appreciated.

Which Anti Virus software do you use? Im ran both 7 and 8 on windows 8.1. Might be the antivirus software that you are using. Try disabling and trying, if it doesnt work reply back again.

Thanks for your kind reply.

I tried to change the port number from 8069 to some other number like 9069, 8070. But in these cases, the server simply does not get started. No error message is shown either. What should I do?
