Hi

having installed from fresh the last 1.4.0.1 magento on windows 7/ localhost

having connected to the connect manager and installed the latest french pack

clicking on the “return to admin link” gets me to /magento/downloader/index.php/admin which is a css less version of the magento/donwloader page

the link is indeed to /magento/downloader/index.php/admin while it should probably be to /magento/index.php/admin

more than that I am always redirected to that same /magento/downloader/index.php page even if i type by hand /magento or /magento/admin
in the url field of my navigator

thanks for any help

The problem is connected with localhost installation on Windows.
I solved this problem by reinstalling magento following closely these steps:
http://www.jvfconsulting.com/blog/117/How_To_Install_Magento_Locally_On_Windows_XP.html

NOTE: Because Magento does not work with PHP 5.3, the best is to use WAMP server, not XAMPP. In Wamp you can easily configure which PHP version to use.

Unpack MAGENTO to for example

C:\wamp\www\yourdomain (or C:\xampp\htdocs\yourdomain)

Most important to solve this issue is to configure these files:

C:\wamp\bin\apache\conf\httpd.conf
remove the “#” hash character in front of the following line:

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

set DocumentRoot path to the directory where your installation of magento is, e.g.:

DocumentRoot “C:/wamp/www/yourdomain/”

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
add the following domain entry to point to your localhost IP address:

127.0.0.1 www.yourdomain.com

Restart Apache !
Start the magento installation by opening up the www.yourdomain.com website in your browser, and if you did all the above setup correctly, you’ll see the first part of the Magento installation screen.

Without this step, the cookies of the Magento install will not work properly and the database will not properly install when going through the Magento setup. This solved the issue magento connect now can return to admin without problems. Also, this way I\’ve solved another issue that after installation login to magento admin redirect back to the login without displaying an error message.

Note: check version of PHP, which you will use. Magento not work with PHP 5.3 (for XAMPP, use XAMPP for Windows Version 1.7.1 ). In Wamp, download and use PHP 5.2.11 instead.

ALTERNATIVE:
Unpack MAGENTO to for example to C:/wamp/www/magento
Now updade the followin files accordingly:

C:\wamp\bin\apache\conf\httpd.conf
set DocumentRoot path to the basic WAMP directory:

DocumentRoot “C:/wamp/www/”

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
add the following domain entry to point to your localhost IP address:

127.0.0.1 www.localhost.com

Restart Apache !
Now start the magento installation by opening up the www.localhost.com/magento website in your browser, and if you did all the above setup correctly, you’ll see the first part of the Magento installation screen…

I hope this helps.

Removing all cache files from ../<magento_app_dir>/var/cache/, then I can return to admin page or home page without any problem.

Delete the cache in your /<root folder>/var/cache
There are about 15 folders named ‘mage--x.’ Delete them and it will work again. I’m guessing you should also restart your LAMP server (XAMPP, Wamp etc.) after that. It worked for me.
