Help with installation

I am following the instructions for setting up CS-Cart Beta 2 version on localhost. I have installed XAMPP and that all seems to be running fine. When I get to page 7 of the instructions to install on my local host and I type in [url]http://localhost/cscart/install.php[/url], I get an error message “Object not found. The requested url was not found on this server …”. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is happening?

Is this Beta version regarded as a “trial version” and do I need to enable the support of the IonCube Loader in my XAMPP as referred to on page 5 of the instructions?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I will be buying CS-Cart after playing around with it and wonder if I am better to wait until the stable version of this one is released in a couple of months or whether I am better to buy the current version and upgrade to the new version later.

The problem is caused by the fact that you use the incorect URL in order to run the CS-Cart Installation Wizard. You should use the [url]http://localhost/cscart/install/[/url] URL instead of [url]http://localhost/cscart/install.php[/url]. Please let me note that there are insctuctuions how to install CS-Cart of this version properly in the “install.txt” file located in the root directory of the installation kid.
