comment Browser with its own hosts file?
Perhaps you should read the first two comments under the question. This was addressed 4 years ago.

comment Browser with its own hosts file?
@barlop - I already mentioned that I thought a portable ff could have its own settings for each installed copy. But as I also said, the software doesn't work with FF. So neither would foxyproxy, but they're good choices for others.

comment Browser with its own hosts file?
@barlop - It's not possible to use a different proxy for different instances of IE. What i'm trying to accomplish is to be able to launch different instances of the browser using a different host/ip mapping.

The part that most people fail to understand about this is that in order to work effectively, you need to be able to run multiple browsers simultaneously, using different host/ip mappings. For example, I need to have both my production and test and debug instances open in different browser instances. Each one has to use the same hostname (because HTTP 1.1 hostname mapping maps the correct site based on the hostname). If you just change the host file, then every instance of the browsers now maps to the new server, not just the single instance of it.

comment File History isn't doing it for me. What are the alternatives?
@Pieter - it also works great as a media server as well. The backup really is that nice though.

You might consider building a second computer and getting a copy of Windows Server 2012 Essentials, which has built-in fire-and-forget backup for all systems on your network.

comment Hyper-V not working on Windows 8
@JamesHill - Also, check under the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities for a certificate with the name of your computer. Also, look under all the others, and delete any you find. Also, did you disable UAC? If so, that could be a problem. Also run SFC /scannnow and if all else fails, try refreshing the install or doing a new clean install.
