The hosts file generated with hjt lacks the ipv6 localhost entry.

::1 localhost

Also WinSrv2012 has a different default hosts file.

    which is also similar to Vista/Win7/Win8 too. I wonder if we can restore the same host file with ::1 on XP without consequences. I would say no, or could we generate diff host file depending the OS?

    No problem to put the ::1 in the Windows XP version if the OS does not have ipv6 protocol installed, it just ignores it.

    But a specific version for each windows version is better, but the windows version detection must be fixed for this.

    ok for now, will update it with ::1. Specific host file requires more work. so will wait for future release.
