[XAMPP] Stuck At Installing Dashboard

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I've installed XAMPP and Concrete 5.6 and when I try to install using localhost/, I always get hung up on 'Installing Dashboard.'

I've checked the database that it connects to and it's creating ~170 tables everytime. I've done an extensive search through google, also these forums, and no solutions have worked for me.

So far, I've tried:
- extending the max_execution_time
- changing the storage to MyISAM
- installing Concrete & Concrete 5.5 separately with no luck. (Got Strict Standard errors that I couldn't fix by editing the php.ini file in XAMPP.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I've tried a lot of things so far and haven't been able to resolve this.

I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit and I've downloaded the XAMPP PHP 5.4 Version.

maybe make sure /config /files and /packages are recursively writable by the web server account before the installation?

If you're really stuck you could try WAMP instead.
