Per Stephen Rowe on the User2 list and direct emails to me, XAMPP 1.7.4 and other versions do NOT work on Windows 64-bit environments. So you may want to use WampServer --Ken Roy 14:03, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
Vista and Windows 7 Users
Vista Note: Because missing or insufficient write permissions in the c:\program files folder of the default vista installation, we recommend to use alternate folders for XAMPP e.g. c:\xampp or c:\myfolder\xampp.

- Currently I am using xampp on my Vista desktop so that I can edit and view PHP files with Dreamweaver. So I know xampp works well with Vista. Xamp recommends that you don't install it in the program directory but off the root directory due to permissions issues with the program directory under Vista.(Steve Overton on the User List)
