Open my browser to http://127.0.01/xampp/ and so far so good. Click on the status link (http://127.0.01/xampp/index.php) and MySQL, PHP, CGI and SSI show as deactivaced.
I have installed this on Dell Inspiron 17r special edition running Window 7 Home Premium SP1
Any and all ideas will be greatly appreciated.
