Setting up on windows, linux or mac is the same thing. The only thing that changes is how you handle the directories, since every OS has its own way to handle it.
If you are using windows, you will not be able to package your app to iphone. You need MacOS to do this. This is not a Sencha limitation, this is a limitation from Apple. You also need to be an apple developer to deploy/package the app to this platform. The developer program costs $99 dolars/year.
I know there are emulators for windows, but they do not work the same way as the native apple ios emulator.
I highly recommend you to at least implement a hello world program with iOS and Android, so you can understand how the deployment and packaging of these two platforms work. This is not necessary to work with Sencha Touch, but it helps you to understand a lot of things.
Remember you need a webserver to run sencha examples. If you are using xampp, make sure you start the server before trying to run the examples.
Sencha Architect does not create index.html, the file it creates is app.html, so you should try access: http://localhost/sencha/TouchSimpleE...nview/app.html
Hope this can help you to get started.
thank you for your time, but it doesn't answer the question...
I still do not know where do I need to expand Sencha SDK
I use XAMPP for over 3 years so I know what and how to use it, however I'm not sure is SDK should go under XAMPP directory or in C:\Programs OR Somewehere Else.
You can put in any directory you want.
Put putting it under xampp directory make things easier, because you can access the docs offline.
I have 2 videos, they are in Portuguese, but you can follow the steps:

Please help me.
Please take a look at compatible matches of Sencha Touch and Sencha Cmd:
