I installed Joomla 1.7 on XAMPP 1.7.4, but it's not working. It's showing me a bunch of messages like:

Strict Standards: Static function JDatabase::test() should not be abstract in C:\xampp\htdocs\joomla\libraries\joomla\… on line 350

Strict Standards: Accessing static property JCache::$_handler as non static in C:\xampp\htdocs\joomla\libraries\joomla\… on line 394

What can I do to remove those messages?

Uninstall and install again. Read the messages during install. – mailq Aug 8 '11 at 11:01

You may need to do that on your administrator folder too.
