I am a .NET Developer and for the first time installing Magento 2.3 on my local machine with Windows 10 , 64 bit machine from last three days but without success.
Here is what I did -
Installed XAMPP from here https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html
Downloaded , unzipped and copied the magento files to C:/xampp/htdocs/magento23 folder
- From XAMPP> Apache > Config , uncommented the extensions soap, xsl, mysql and almost every other extension
- Installed Composer and executed the composer install command in magento23 folder
- Removed read-only permission from the complete folder
- Readiness check, installation, DB Creation done. But the admin screen comes up complete gray and application screen come up with only few links at the bottom.
