What do I need to type in the URL bar to access CMS made simple on a local installation ( Xampp)?

Last Modified: 2015-09-15
Hi. I have installed CMS made simple locally in Xampp. In xampp there is a menu (Bitnami) enabling installation of an earlier version, but I didn't see this until I installed version 2.0 manually. Now I can't access the installation. Does anyone know how I can I configure Xampp to show it?  I have Apache and MySQL running.

http://localhost takes me to the Xampp dashboard
http://localhost/xampp/htdocs/cms/cms_active/index.php gives me ... 404 not found
My installation of CMS is not listed in Applications in the Xampp dashboard.
Please help !!
