    Yes, you can do this quite easily. All you need is a separate directory for each platform in the "htdocs" folder in the installation. You can even use the same database, but creating separate databases makes it a little easier to manage, especially if you plan on taking it from your XAMPP server to a live server.To access it once you have your files in place, the URL will be localhost/{platform} replacing {platform} with whatever directory you put the installation in.EDIT: Even if you already have one installed into the base directory, you can still use a sub-directory for the new installation.
