Windows 7 release

Hi,

I was just wondering when a completely stable version of XAMPP is planned for roll out on Windows 7? That's all!

Thanks.

What's your problem with XAMPP?

I don't really have a problem yet...

It is just that I am a complete noob to this whole PHP / Apache / MySQL thing and I was really hoping to make a good start!

Having Googled about a bit I see that people with vast amounts more experience than me have been having issues getting XAMPP to run smoothly on Windows 7.

I was just hoping to avoid similar issues and make a good start when XAMPP says on the website that they are ready for Windows 7.

Am I being too cautious? Does it really matter?

Thanks.

There is IMHO no XAMPP problem specific to Windows 7.

(especially if you are running an official Windows 7 release and not an rc/beta version or or from a dubious source)

I have a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate - it is a completely genuine 32-bit install (although the means of acquisition was somewhat nefarious - nothing illegal I might add!).

So would you advise that downloading:

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html

and install as per Vista?

Thanks for your help. Really much appreciated.

There is only one XAMPP for Windows. And if you have a Windows, regardless if 2000,2003,XP,Vista,7, you must use this package (if you want use XAMPP).

and install as per Vista?

The installation is the same for all Windows versions.
