I'm just getting back to this after a while. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, downgrading to 2.0.0, installing 64-bit as well as 32-bit, and resetting preferences. I'm currently back at 2.0.1 32-bit. I reset the preferences and turned the HTTP interface back on. And I'm right back where I started. I can get to the remote interface on the local machine at http://localhost:8080
, but can't access it from any other device. I still get
403 Forbidden (/)

I don't know how relevant it is, but the VLC Setup Helper does, and has always, not displayed a proper GUI. It runs in the taskbar and I have to use task manager to end the task. In previous versions, it was doing what it needed to do. Maybe now it's not?
