Local SERVER DIAGNOSTIC CHECK fails at step 1 - :-(

Local SERVER DIAGNOSTIC CHECK fails at step 1 - :-(

The remote server install wizard worked perfect for PowerStore 3.

Local machine... Not so good.

I am running XAMPP 1.7.3. I extracted the Powerstore3 files to a Dreamweaver folder (xampp/htdocs/MySite). When I run the Wizard through Internet Explorer or Firefox on the local machine from the install folder I get the Getting Started screen but then the server diagnostic check fails through all checks.

It comes up with this error.

ERROR: All of the attributes below need to check out before you can proceed to the next step.
PHP is installed. PHP is running is safe mode. Contact your hosting provider to turn off safe mode. PHP 5 or greater is required. Contact your hosting provider to upgrade your PHP server.

GD Image Library [] is installed. GD Image Library is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have GD installed.

cURL [] is installed. cURL is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have cURL installed.

SimpleXML is installed. SimpleXML is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have SimpleXML installed.

File Permissions

Files and directories can be created. Files and directories cannot be created. Verify the powerstore directory has write permissions on your server.

I came across bits and pieces on this subject in the Forum Posts but so far nothing to fix my issue.

I changed the privileges for the local folder to Read/Write, but the server checks still fail. Also noticed a Connections folder does not get created like it does on the remote server.
I reinstalled several times but get the same results everytime.

Tech Support is closed till Monday but, if anyone else out there knows or even has a hunch about how to get the server diagnostic check (local) to run successfully I sure would be grateful. Everything seems to be in order. XAMPP is running along with MySQL. Localhost is working, PHPMyAdmin also works locally. HMMMMM? What could it be?

Have a nice weekend, AND KEEP CODING!

PROBLEM SOLVED! Server Diagnostic Check (Local)

Well, After 2 days of WTF? ... it sorta kinda ended up like this...

Using DREAMWEAVER - NOT a Web Browser...
Open the (local) index.php file located in the xampp\htdocs\install folder
THEN, choose Preview in Browser... from DREAMWEAVER!

Don't do what I was doing - Which WAS...
Using WINDOWS EXPLORER to choose the same file and then selecting "Open With" your browser.

What can I say?
It was opening the same page in the same browser, Right?
... It just didn't have the "required site code" when it opened.

"NEWB INSANITY" is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Thanks, Office Guy_172461. All that info was absolutely required for setup!
