I'm trying out Magento 2 using localhost with wamp and I can't get the admin page to load/display? I do get a page with index.php but it doesn't display the luma logo as in examples I've seen, so unsure if this is correct? Below - first image is the admin page which is just a dark grey blank page - second image is the index pageadmin page display

This is broken because the recent github commit:

Fix Saurabh Dwivedi:

IN www-rootdir\vendor\magento\framework\View\Element\Template\File\Validator.php

Replace in the protected function isPathInDirectories($path, $directories):

$realPath = str_replace('\\', '/', $this->fileDriver->getRealPath($path));
