XAMPP really is a great project however I, like many other people on the oscommerce forums and google searching, have noticed that the more recent versions do appear to have issues when running oscommerce. That is oscommerce doesn't install correctly.
For example the very latest version created an error code when doing a currency update. cURL was missing.
This error does not appear when running the earlier version 1.4.9. In fact I have only noticed issues with the later versions of xampp.
Is this issue like to be resolved in the next release?
