do you already read the readme_en.txt file in your installation directory?

Read again readme_en.txt => QUICK INSTALLATION => Step 5:
What is the correct root directory?

btw: installations of xampp deeper than your HDD-root directory (especially space-separated directory names) can produce some unexpected errors

Try the Board-Search if you want to install it on Windows7 :D
The installation, especially on Windows 7 64Bit, could be a little trickier than on Windows XP

Try putting your file in the XAMPP root directory, which depends on your installation, but I guess it is c:\program files\xampp\htdocs\. The url "http://localhost/...." points to that root directory, not "..\security\..".

This is actually what Altrea was saying. "Step 5: The root directory (main document) für HTTP(S) is => \xampp\htdocs." [..\xampp\readme_en.txt]

I am also a newcomer to XAMPP. What is the best way to install XAMPP? Should I just go to XAMPP.org and install the file or should I install everything separately?

Thanks
