1. step 1-> magento2 download from https://github.com/magento/magento2 version 0.1.0-alpha101all
  2. step 2-> install composer globally using composer windows installer.
  3. step 3-> run composer install in magento2/setup directory using CMD and everything is installed perfect.

Then, I went to localhost/magento2/ .. the browser is redirected to a new url localhost/magento2/setup/ with title "Magento Setup Tool" but a blank page is displayed. No install steps are displayed in my browser. I tried that with firefox and chrome with same results.

Its a common situation?, anyone knows if we have to erase some file after we run composer install into setup directory?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about an alpha release of Magento 2 and no longer relevant – Fabian Schmengler Apr 20 '16 at 8:39
  • @fschmengler you are right. i will delete. thanks. brgds – s_h Apr 20 '16 at 8:44

I would try with dev beta (or the most recent build). There was quite a bit of change in the installer in weeks before dev beta. The web setup may have been broken in that alpha build - it is working now in beta1 at least.

There are a number of posts around now talking about how to get dev beta up and going. Examples include a video linked from http://magento.com/developers/magento2 but quite a few people have blogged on this now - find your favorite with Google if you don't like the video.


Try creating a vhost instead of the default localhost/magento setup. It seems your installation is looking for some files in the root directory of your hard drive and i dont think that is correct.
