Either delete or rename the install folder and everthing will be all fine. This is not a PHP error message but an error message being produced by oscommerce.

Now make sure you have ran through the required steps oscommerce may need to be fully installed, to chekc you mighjt want to read through the documentation, then just delete or rename the install folder. You're best of just deleting the install folder for added security.

Hello,

To remove these messages, first of all
1) Make sure you have a /tmp directory, it exists. The /tmp directory is specified in a php.ini file, and if you're using Osc Ms2.2 in the admin->Configuration->Sessions.
2) To remove the session error you could also use the define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); in the catalog/includes/configure.php file.
3) Delete the installation directory
4) As you're using windows, make your catalog/includes/configure.php - non writable, set 'read-only' checkbox in the file atrributes.

Good luck.
