I'm new to Magento and just installed the latest version on my localhost with xammp. I followed this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Voq2XarSSBA but at 6:20 I am not able to deploy the content like in the video. I receive an error.

enter image description here

  • Run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

  1. Go to your Magento Installation.
  2. Open app/etc/di.xml.
  3. Make Changes in <item name="view_preprocessed" xsi:type="object">Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink</item>.
  4. Replace Symlink with Copy.
  5. Go to pub/static folder.
  6. Delete everything except .htaccess file.
