Open your text editor and save a blank file called lang.tmp to the C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp folder.
Then go to http://localhost and select your language again.
Let us know back if that fixed it.
Yes you can.ckosloff wrote:Now let me know just one thing: I have patch 1 installed.
Should I install patch 2 on top of it???

When reinstalling use the EXE (7zip) version and extract to the C:\ drive which will then create C:\xampp and place all the files in their correct location, then simply run the setup_xampp.bat file to set the paths correctly.
Don't install any services unless you know you will need to have XAMPP components start up automatically after a reboot - usually only needed if you have a server connected to a permanent Internet connection.
Make sure you follow the uninstall instructions especially making sure that all XAMPP components are stopped including the XAMPP Control Panel (XCP) and all XAMPP components that may be installed as a service have been uninstalled as a service including the XCP, then delete the xampp folder.
Reboot and make certain that no XAMPP components are running again by checking in the Task Manager before attempting to install XAMPP again or you will have issues with the new install as is posted on these forums in ever increasing numbers because it seems the above procedure was not followed.
Never try and install into an existing xampp folder.
Good luck and now enjoy XAMPP.
