    Check these First,

    Launch the Visual Administrator and look if the VC server application is running. If it is then,

    Open Deploy -> Server_XX -> DevelopmentServer

    2 entries shud be active i.e:

    1)* vc_client

    2)* VisualComposerServerEar04

    Check also the service "VisualComposer-DevelopmentServer" parameters.

    You can also have a look in the system information of your Java Engine.

    "http://yourserver:yourport/"

    Click on All components in the Software components window and search for VCBASE, VCKITXX, VCKITGP, VCFLEX, VCFRAMEWORK etc.

    Check the entries in the Host File, and make sure that u have localhost mentioned in it.

    Hi I've copied the following section from the VC 6 installation manual.

    It worked from me, maybe it works for you:

    4 Preparing the Visual Composer Client

    Machine

    Visual Composer Storyboard, operating on the Visual Composer server, is the design

    environment in which you create your portal content. It functions as a thin-client application

    that can be accessed from the Internet Explorer web browser of any machine with network

    access to the Visual Composer server. See the Visual Composer User Guide for instructions

    about logging on to Visual Composer Storyboard from a client machine.

    In order to log on to and work with Visual Composer Storyboard, be sure that your Visual

    Composer client machine meets the following software requirements:

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1or higher

    • Microsoft XML Parser 4.0

    • Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0

    Download MS XML parser 4:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/6/5/9657c01e-107f-409c-baac-7d249561629c/msxml.msi

    Download SVG from

    http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/mainframed.html

    Best regards, Marcel.
