Can you supply a link so I can take a look at this issue from an Internet perspective?
I see you have also posted exactly the same on the OpenCart forums, but still no responses?
AFAIK there are no installation settings specific for XAMPP with OpenCart that you missed or any cache permission or indeed permissions of any kind in a Windows installation.
One can almost assume that XAMPP is not at fault here, because it loads locally without issue, but perhaps your router settings or some other PC or firewall/anti-virus issue or even an OpenCart configuration setting.
There may be a network guru spot this thread and offer some specifics for network settings.
Is there anything related in the Apache error.log file after you try and access from the network or from the Internet?
