I tried and failed to get a CWIS installation running on a Windows 8 localhost under XAMPP some months back (see this thread). Seeing a new version for download, v3.2, I thought I'd try again. The installation went fine, other than a few PHP warnings/notices, and the CWIS home appears, again with PHP warnings. I try to login with the admin credentials I created (admin/cwis_admin) and nothing happens - the end-user home page reappears, without any admin options. I'm using XAMPP 5.6.3 which is running PHP 5.6.3 and MySQL 5.6.21.
Should CWIS be able to run under such a configuration? If so, could someone suggest how I could successfully login as admin and reach the Administrator screen?
