Configure your XAMPP: Even if it is possible to set up several applications in one single XAMPP
installation, I recomment to start with a fresh XAMPP installation.
(Rename your XAMPP Folder if you have an existing installation on already installed and) copy the Application data to your Application Folder.

Configure your httpd.conf within XAMPP:
Add the following line to the configuration file to make sure that the mod_rewrite module rewriting is enabled:

(You must have root-rigths to do this)
Open the following file in an editor
and add the following line to the file
= 07 =
Change the rights on the magento folder to 777 (or 775).
There is no need to make the entire Folder writeable but it\’s easier

Use the xampp-control panel to start run the MySQL Server.
Login to the MySQL server and create a database for the Magento installation and
import the SQL-File from the example-data Folder into the created database.

Search for the following line
SET NAMES utf8
and replace it with the following line
SET NAMES utf8; SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0; SET UNIQUE_CHECKS=0;
Open the app/Mage.php and comment:
//self::throwException(’Mage registry key “‘.$key.’” already exists’);
Don’t use it on production stores!

Make sure that the Apache WebServer and the MySQL Server of your XAMPP installation is running.
Now open the magento installation wizard by opening http://magento.localhost in a web browser.
Follow the instructions and start the installation process. This will take a while.
There will be no status bar but u can use the Health-Window of MySQL-Administrator to see the process.

After finishing the installation the personal information should be updated. Visit the Front- and the Backend-Store to change the information.
You have to \"remap\" the Products (follow the instructions in the backend.)
