Postby hasanfirdaus79 » 04. April 2020 07:33

Hello
I want to Installing XAMPP on Windows 10 64bit, i want to install it in my root drive E (outside folder), but, XAMPP keep say:
---------------------------
Warning
---------------------------
The selected folder is not empty. Please select a different folder
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------
I've check the drive E, it just have a $RECYCLE.BIN and System Volume Information and i can't delete it.
Anyone have a solution?
Sorry if my English is bad, I'm from Indonesia.

You can ignore this warning. XAMPP checks if the destination is empty to prevent you from overwriting folder and files by accident.

Easiest solution for that would be to use the zip version instead of the installer. Simply extract the zip to the destination of your choice and execute the setup_xampp.bat.bat script to set all needed paths correctly.

You can find all released xampp versions on sourceforge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP Windows/
