Setup script immediately errors out

Postby mtcastlem » 08. March 2010 21:21

OS: Windows XP SP2 32bit
XAMPP: 1.7.3
Logged in as Administrator

When I run the setup_xampp.bat file, I get the following error message:

WARNING: include(C:\xampp\install): failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\xampp\install\xampp_xampp.php on line 96
Stack trace:
#0 C:\xampp\install\xampp_xampp.php(96): exception_error_handler(2, 'include(C:\xamp...', 'C:\xampp\instal...', 96, Array)
#1 C:\xampp\install\xampp_xampp.php(96): XAMPP::registerPackages()
#2 C:\xampp\install\xampp_xampp.php(135): XAMPP::registerPackages()
#3 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat(400): XAMPP::Init()
#4 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat(417): setup_XAMPP::Init()
#5 C:\xampp\setup_xampp.bat(480): setup_XAMPP::Run()
#6 {main}

When I examine the PHP code, it is trying to include an install file from an array of setup files in the Install directory. Is there some kind of permissions I need to propagate down the folder tree, or is this some other related access problem?

This is the first time I have come across this error using XAMPP since I started 2 years ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

well you can download the exe version and if that dont work
then use Method B: "Installation" without the Installer.
just copy the files to your C:\xampp directory,
and click on xampp-control.exe in that directory .

there it says "If you choose a root directory "C:\" as target, you must not start "setup_xampp.bat". "
