2. Run file XAMPP set up that you've downloaded above
3. Enter Next

But, if you save it in disk C (C: is system disk), when you set up a new Windows Operation, XAMPP can't run and you must to install XAMPP again. So, you should move it to another disk. In Select a folder item, I clear the path "C:\xampp" and replace by "D:\xampp":
5. Now, the install folder is moved to D:\xampp. Continue entering Next
8. Enter Next
9. The setup is immediately ready for installing XAMPP. Enter Next. Please wait several minutes... Then, you select Finish to complete this setup.
