Great thanks for the 4.0.2 version of the typo3winstaller that has fixed many bugs.
I am using the apache server in the package to program a non-typo3 site in the htdocs folder of the installation.
However, when I try to set a cookie with the php command setcookie and read it with isset(cookiename), I do not get any data. When I upload the very same code to a webserver, it works perfectly fine!
Any suggestions?

btw, rjdestigter had wondered about the php error reporting problem (php errors are not shown when running typo3 on local machine). any of you guys have an answer to his question? would help me a lot too.

Appreciate any suggestion. tnx in advance.
