How do you free up a port being held open by dead process?
Thank you, good sir. I can't believe this answer is so low, especially since the google query is filled with answers "use TCPView/use netstat & taskkill" that do not help in this case. In my case what helped was running ProcessExplorer and looking for any process that had been orphaned. Shutting them down solved the problem.
