Problem Description:

When I try to add a virtual host to the bundled server it appears to register in CF Builder (it shows up in the Virtual Hosts list) however the virtual host added doesn't work.  I can also confirm that the server.xml file is not modified in any way in the C:\ColdFusionBuilder3\ColdFusion\cfusion\runtime\conf directory.

Steps to Reproduce:

1) Right click on defaultLocal then choose Edit Server
2) Click Next
3) Choose the Virtual Host Settings tab
4) Click New
5) Add a virtual host (example, Name=Test1, HostName = test1, Port=8603 (I tried several including 8600), Type=http, DocumentRoot=C:\ColdFusionBuilder3\ColdFusion\cfusion\wwwroot\test1\
6) Click Apply
7) Click Finish
8) Restart the bundled server.  Make sure there are no errors in the console
9) Make sure to add "test1" to the HOSTS file in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc (pointing to

Actual Result:

-http://test1:8603 = Unable to connect

-The server.xml file was not modified.
-There was no new directory in C:\ColdFusionBuilder3\ColdFusion\cfusion\runtime\conf\Catalina for test1 (there should be)

Expected Result:

http://test1:8603 should show me the root of my site.

Any Workarounds:

As is stands, I'm using http://localhost:8600/subdirectory/ to test my projects but I need to use Apache's rewrite capabilities in almost all my websites and I can't test that locally until I get Apache to treat my sites as the root (hence the importance of the the virtual hosts functionality).

Not having a working virtual host also affects debugging.
