In the lite version only uncomment ;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
then save the php.ini file and restart Apache.
and check for the mcrypt section.
In all of my different installed full versions of XAMPP (for testing and troubleshooting forum issues
) the php.ini files have this ;extension=php_mcrypt_filter.dll
commented out where as the extension=php_mcrypt.dll
is uncommented and seemingly by default, the exception being in the lite version, which has both extensions commented out - there is no php_mcrypt_filter.dll
extension in the xampp\php\ext
folder of the lite version, so uncommenting it may give an "unable to load extension" error.
So best practice might be to check in the xampp\php\ext
folder that a particular extension is present before uncommenting the extension's entry in the php.ini file - also research what a particular extension is all about (perhaps friend Google or Bing could help with the research
The Apache Friends advanced
forum search facility is your best friend for XAMPP issues.

BTW there is a new version 1.7.2 currently in beta testing that promises to be more user friendly.http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-beta.html
Beta testers are always welcome, with the beta page having a Feedback
form that is quite often more use than this forum for reporting beta issues.
