So far everything seems to be ok with 1.4.01 running on XAMPP but I noticed today that I get a strange character message:

“‹���������ÿÿ���������”

upon trying to use magento connect. Has anyone run into this before? Any ideas on how to fix?

Well I figured out a work around for this issue, it seem that visiting the exact url for the connection manager works fine and even seems to fix the error. As in http://www.domainname.com/store/downloader/?return=http://www.domainname.com/store/index.php/admin/

funny huh. I agree
