The standalone PC needs to have TCP/IP installed to connect to 127.0.0.1.
If you cannot get a good response from "ping 127.0.0.1" in a command prompt,
your application will not work.  You cannot install TCP/IP unless it has
some physical device to bind to, so the PC needs at least a network card or
a modem or somesuch, but that should not be a problem.
