The SiteKiosk shell replacement (e.g. active in the so-called “Autostart“ mode of SiteKiosk) causes applications stored in the Startup directory (Start-->All Programs-->Startup) to be overlooked when the user logs on to the system.

The recommended way would be to start XAMPP as a Windows service.
This ensures that the application is started before SiteKiosk and independently of the logged on Windows user.

Otherwise you can find more methods here:

Thank for your tip...
I solved the issue but I have a problem with the content of the page: if I open with Chrome outside SK I see everything OK but when I open inside SK some elements are not correctly loaded.
Do you think that there could be some problem with user permission?
Thank again

Did you estict the Surfarea (SiteKiosk configuraiton)?
Which information is given in the SiteKiosk Log?
