WebStorm 9 Cannot View in any Browser

I installed WebStorm 9 today and I could not view in browser for any project.  In versions 7 and 8 I never had to do any setup to view in browser, it just worked out of the box.  When I tried I got these results:

Chrome: http://localhost:63342/EventReg/app/Test.html, Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE.

Firefox: http://www.localhost.com:63342/EventReg/app/Test.html, Server Not Found.

IE:  http://localhost:63342/EventReg/app/Test.html,  This page can’t be displayed.

I tried many settings and many searches to no avail.  I was just about ready to return to version 8.  Fortunately uninstalling Version 9, then reinstalling it fixed the problem.

Normally all you need is to select the browser icon in the editor or select it from View/Open in browser, no additional setup is needed (just as before). Correct address is  http://localhost:63342/<project_name>/path/to/html (no www needed). Seems the built-in web server can't connect for some reason. Please attach your idea.log and Chrome extension console content (see http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/WI/LiveEdit, 'How do I know what's wrong?')

Thanks for the reply, I updated my message after uninstalling/reinstalling fixed things.  All is well now!
