Debugging BlogEngine.NET on Vista Ultimate x64 SP1

This issue is not specific to BlogEngine.NET, but it seems that any web application in this environment will run into the same problem.

I just finished upgrading my development box to Vista 64 SP1. I have VS 2005 SP1 + KB932232. I started devenv as Administrator. When I start the BlogEngine.NET web site in debugging mode using the built-in web server, then IE 7 opens but doesn't load the requested page. When I use the same URL in Firefox 2.0 e.g. http://localhost:4444/BlogEngine.NET/ then it loads success fully from the built-in Visual Studio web server. It looks like there is something wrong with IE 7 and Vista SP1.

Did anyone run into a similar problem yet?
