I was using AEM 6.5 for about more than 2 months. It was working fine until today. I am not able to launch/open aem-quickstart-4502.jar like I used to open it. When I double click the jar file ----> It should load the .jar file for about 5 to 10 seconds and then automatically open in a browser with localhost:4502. It is loading as expected and I am not able to open with my browser ( on localhost:4502 locally).
I am able to open publish -> which is localhost:4503.
Also, I am able to open my author Instance on 8080 where my projects are not installed. ( I have used 4502 to install all my projects)
Possible reasons : 1) I have renamed my .jar file from crx-author-4502.jar to aem-author-4502.jar
2) I have did some synchronization in Brackets application.
I have no idea how my localhost:4502 is not working and not opening in browser. Browser says "Cannot reach this page"
It is not due to proxy because I am able to open localhost:8080 (author) and also localhost:4503 (publish)
Try to check the port number for author instance is set to 4502 in setup.bat file at <your jar folder>\crx-quickstart\bin\start.bat if it is fine try running the AEM by double clicking on start.bat file now it will run the instance on port no: 4502.
Or you can change the port of running instance using Apache Felix Jetty Http Service Config shown as below:
