I have the same set-up as you, here are some parts of my httpd.conf
file which should help - your hosts file is fine.

BindAddress *
Port 80
Listen 80
Listen 9000
ServerAdmin rich at localhost
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot "D:/"

NameVirtualHost *

I create development domains as VirtualHosts. For example here is one

<VirtualHost *>
    ServerAdmin rich at thegamecreators.com
    DocumentRoot D:/usr/home/fatal2/public_html/launchcode
    ServerName launchcode.dev
    ErrorLog logs/tgc_error
    CustomLog logs/tgc_access common

and I have launchcode.dev in my hosts file pointing to

Best regards,
 Richard Davey
