You should have created a new topic rather than post in here as not knowing where the php.ini file is not an issue with 1.7.4, is it? Make sure Apache and MySQL in XAMPP are running then go to:
Look for the item Loaded Configuration File
and it will tell you what you want to know and also provides all the information you need to know about your php installation settings.
Sorry if it's just because I'm not seeing something but after hours of searching this forum, I found this thread.
Let me say firstly that I'm an admitted noob and only downloaded xampp so that I could learn php.
Sharley, I clicked the localhost link above and got this message:
Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

I've looked through the xampp/php file for the php.ini file but as hamza pointed out above, I only found the php.ini-development and php.ini-production files he did but no php.ini file.
Is there someplace I can download a copy or am I simply missing something?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Note: The issue I had that led me here is actually that when I try to display a php file one of three things happens:0
1. The page is blank
2. The actual script shows
echo "<h1>Hello World!</h1>";
...displays Hello World! >";
and @ altrea: yes, I used windows search and it returned no results
