This is the first time im getting problem with a Magento release. I don’t see any wrong in what i do when i try to install the latest release of magento. I’ve always did the same way with earlier versions, but with the newest one im getting a very annoying problem.
Well, after installation of the latest release, when i try to login to the admin, it doesn’t work at all. Im 100% sure that i write the correct username and password (lol), still dont work. It just redirects me to the same page without warnings etc, the strange thing is if i put a wrong username/password, i get “access denied”.
I really dont have any clue what could been wrong, so it would be interesting to know what the problem could be.

Same error. login/password correct (otherwise I get Access denied error) but I ca’t get past the login page.
Installed new version (0.8.1720) from scratch on windows
Oh, I see. I guess you installed magento on localhost and are trying to access it like http://localhost/magento. But due to standard restrictions browsers don’t save cookie for domains with no dots in domain name. You can try to access it with http://localhost.com/magento or whatever else if you write it to your hosts file on Window
If this is a standard restriction, what changed? This problem did not occur for the above users with earlier releases, and I’ve got the same issue now as well. Never had an issue like this with the last 4 releases....
