Wrong url.

Place your files somewhere inside \xampp\htdocs\ (subfolder for your project for example) and request the file by correct url.

Example: If you want to request the file \xampp\htdocs\myproject\file.php the URL looks like http://localhost/myproject/file.php

Have you ever seen any valid URL in the millions and billions of existing URLs, that contains a drive letter?
