    ---------------------------

    Check failure! This is probably a bug:

    After creating request queue, handle is NULL

    Condition: hRequestQueue != NULL

    File: HttpFileServer.cpp

    Line: 126

    Function: void __cdecl HttpFileServer::Start(const class std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class std::allocator<wchar_t> > &,int)

  • Anyway, I found my own solution, just post here for anyone who would encounter that.

    I think the problems happens after I install Windows Visual Studio Express with its components.
