I have freshly installed a fresh copy of 1.7.
Install went fine, apart from logging into the admin dashboard.
when the correct UID and Pass is entered it loops and displays the login box again.
I have tried to login in both IE and Chrome with no success.
I have also tried the editing of the host fie re-directing the 127.0.0.1 to magento.localhost with no success.
I have installed on Localhost Windows Server 2008 with mySQL 5.5 and PHP Version 5.3.8.
Please tell me what I am not seeing.
