    Hi Tanay,

    That’s the address you are supposed to be getting in the lates version of the Sandbox. What do you get when you point your browser at that address?

    Hi Same problem as Tanay hereabove. I am getting error: invalid stream header on http://127.0.01:8888/
    Lots of strange characters.
    Please help.


    HI Amit, Tanay,

    It sounds like either your import of the Sandbox didn’t happen correctly or the download got corrupted. Can you try re-importing it? Also it would help to know the following:

    what is the OS of the host computer?
    is this host a 64bit hardware box?



    I am also getting same problem.
    When I am opening above link,it displays like page can’t be display



    Hi Simanchal,

    I could help you better if I knew the answers to the questions I asked Amit & Tanay.



    Hi, I too faced the same problem as I was seeing some video on youtube and doing as it said but later I just blindly followed the instructions at and it is working fine for me now. Just try it once.
