Unable to create server socket: Permission denied
#1
After a recent Windows 10 update to 1903, I am seeing this error when I try to lauch WebPVR:
Unable to create server socket: Permission denied at C:\Program Files (x86)\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.cgi line 278

I found an old thread about this problem and I have tried the following without success:
1. Uninstalling get_iplayer, restarting, installing latest get_iplayer (3.20)
2. Checked that perl.exe was an allowed app in the firewall
3. Used netstat to check that nothing else was using port 1935
4. Set shortcut to run as administrator

Any other ideas why this may be happening?
