XAMPP - Can't Log In


I set up a local install of 2.011 on a windows 7 machine.

Everything looks OK, but can’t log in. I get to the log in page:


I enter the default user name and password and sign in, but nothing happens.

No error message.

Done this before on XP, but can’t seem to get it to work on a new computer.

Apache and SQL are all running.

This link works and tried logging in as admin and can’t log in.


I found the problem while writing this, but led to another question.

I was trying to log in using google chrome

I switched to firefox 3.5.6 and logged in. No problem with IE 8.0

I also could not add items to the cart with Google Chrome, cart was empty. Ok with firefox and IE. Any reason Google Chrome won’t work.?
