Overview

This is an already configured OpenEMR with XAMPP on Windows, and is extremely simple to install. The 4.1.1 version includes OpenEMR 4.1.1 and XAMPP version 1.8.0 . The first set of instructions will configure mysql and apache as services (this is what we recommend). The second set of instructions will install XAMPP in a way so that the user is required to start/stop the apache and mysql servers manually (do not start automatically at start up). This XAMPP package is extremely unsecure after installation and you need to secure it (See the XAMPP security instructions to secure your XAMPP installation.)
