Installing on Vista

The default Vista installation contains missing or insufficient write permissions in the c:\program files folder. For this reason, when you install xampplite in Vista,  choose a different folder location, for example c:\xampplite or c:\myfolder\xampplite.

You may prefer to install on a portable drive that you can then attach to any computer.  If you do that,  each time that you change computers, you will need to run the setup_xampp program (see Chapter 2)  before you run the Web server. That’s because your drive was probably assigned to a different drive letter and the setup progam will reset the path to the correct drive letter (and if the drive letter happens to be the same you will just see the message “Nothing to do”).
