Ah, i see. So, it's the fault of the PHP Developers because they haven't ask the Joomla Developers for advise before they released a new PHP version
YOU have the choice which XAMPP version you use. You have chosen XAMPP 1.7.3 which comes with PHP 5.3.
YOU have to proof if your scripts can run on that PHP Version. Your Joomla Version can't work with PHP >= 5.3.
In my world, it is a SINNISTER_777 related issue
So either update your Joomla Version (The latest release of the Joomla core can work with PHP 5.3)
or use an older XAMPP version (XAMPP 1.7.1 uses PHP 5.2.9)
