I am having trouble installing xampp. I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit). I continuously get an error about User Account Control (UAC). It says to install on a folder other than the C drive. I tried that and it still doesn't work. The other option is to deactivate the UAC with (msconfig) and I don't know how to do that. I am a Web student and I need XAMPP installed asap. Can someone please help?

Google for "disable UAC", optionally with your operating system (vista/7) after that.
If I remember correctly, it was in control panel > user accounts > user account control > drag the slider to the bottom. Or you can search for UAC in the search field in the right-top of the control panel. If that does not work, google it or ask a classmate (actually all programming/scripting students should be able to do such things if you ask me, I'm one myself btw).

I know how to disable UAC in the control panel, but I assume that msconfig is asking me to use the command prompt. I don't know how to disable it using the command prompt. I had the same error results when I tried to disable it in the control panel. If anyone has had the same errors I described in my earlier post and has a known solution (not just a guess) I would appreciate your help. As a third semester Web student I am rarely exposed to the command prompt.

I have also just disabled UAC using msconfig but still can't get XAMPP to respond! Any help is appreciated.

Hi terranceUnce,

I have XAMPP ver 1.7.3 installed and running on Windows 7 64 bit with UAC on.

I installed in the default directory C:\XAMPP. It is important you install whilst logged into an administrator account. There are others on this Forum who are using XAMPP on Vista and Windows 7 64 bit.

Hi All,

I'm also using windows 7 64bits.
I've downloaded the latest available version of Xampp for Windows: v1.7.4

I'm trying to get xampp working, but I'm getting the error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function pg_connect()

I've checked php.ini to uncomment the lines:
extension=php_pdo_pgsql.dll
extension=php_pgsql.dll

But I still don't get it to work.

so, when I check phpinfo() I don't see postgre loaded.I've tested loading other extensions, and they work, but not the one i need.

I was wondering if it's some problem with the dll and the fact that I'm using a 64bit, or something totaly different.

I'd really appreciate if someone could help me with that.

have you started Apache & MySQL in the XAMPP Control Panel?
Are there green running indication for them in the control panel?

Thanks for the tip Peter, but I'm still unable to get it installed. I have the only account on my laptop and it is an administrator account. This is driving me crazy. I've got to get it installed by this weekend. I'm already behind on an assignment for my PHP class. Did you have to deviate from the normal installation process at all? This is a brand new laptop so I don't believe it's the problem. Please someone, anyone help!

Hi terranceUnce,

I followed the standard install instructions which included extracting the files using "run as administrator". Try version 1.7.3 - the one before the current one. Install in C:\XAMPP.

It works............finally!

Installing the older version seems to have worked perfectly. Thanks for your help Peter! I really appreciate it. Now it's homework time! Take care.
