    Description

      Moodle Packages for Windows won't install on Vista or Windows 7.
      This is not clear on http://download.moodle.org/windows/ page though there's a brief explanation here : http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_AMP#Vista_and_Windows_7
      There are various workarounds, for example, it's possible to install Xampp and then install a Standard Moodle Package, or use Bitnami Stacks.
      I know this is a problem for 1.9 and, from a recent forum post at http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=171112#p750657 deduce it is for Moodle 2.
