On windows download the XAMPP stack from apache friends. You can see the list of application versions here. You should download version 1.7.7 from sourceforge.

To solve this problem you must change two variables in the suhosin config file: (normally: /etc/php5/conf/suhosin.ini)

After this you must restart your apache server.
