Missing info, what Windows version are you using?

Much more detail about what you are doing will help.

Is your browser able to read Chinese characters?

When you installed XAMPP and first went to http://localhost you were asked to select your language:
Code: Select all
English / Deutsch / Francais / Nederlands / Polski / Italiano / Norwegian / Español / 中文 / Português (Brasil) / 日本語
Is your language there.

If so and you did not select the Chinese language then delete the lang.tmp file in the \xampp\htdocs\xampp folder and then go to http://localhost and select your language again.

Also read the forum search results for Chinese which may hold your particular issue.

This Google search may help.

Good luck.
