Is there at least a proper article to refer to install this and view the demo application?

Seems like you have php < 5.4.

Check the requirements.

Thanks a lot ORey. i had php 5.3 in my xampp. just updated to php 5.4 and now it works.

Please help, i am getting this

D:\xampp\htdocs\vector>composer update

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[’ in D:\xampp\htdocs\vector\vendor\yiisoft\yii2-composer\Installer.php on line 82
