In the end I could install.. But now I have another problem.. I can’t sign in. I checked email address and password from db too but no solution.. They are correct...I created a new user and there is no problem with it. I have problem only with the admin account..

I had the same problem. After the smooth instalation under Windows XP, i could not sign in through the admin login I just created. But how did you insert a new user directly into the table, if the password field is encoded?

Thanks.

This is happening for cookie and to overcome it you have to modify a file hosts.file and it’s path - C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.file

add this code below
127.0.0.1 magento.localhost.com http://www.localhost.com

replacing the default one and browse your site like http://www.localhost.com/magento/admin
