Hey :D !

Tim Eilers gave a small instruction on how to edit the php.ini
He said you should use single quotes instead of double or not to use 
trailing slashes.
I now have these two lines with single quotes in my php.ini

extension_dir = 'C:\xampp\php53alpha\ext\'
session.save_path = 'C:\xampp\tmp'

Also I used this php snapshot

And I had to deactivate/comment the browscap line in the php.ini

In general I followed a mix of the instructions of Malte Jansen and Tim 
I hope I didn't forget anything. Here comes a 

- Extract the Xampp-binaries to a folder e.g. "[Harddrive]\xampp"
- Download latest binaries of PHP5.3 for windows 
- Extract the PHP-binaries to a folder e.g. "[Harddrive]\xampp\php53alpha\"
- _Copy_ all DLLs to "\xampp\apache\bin\"
- File "[Harddrive]\xampp\apache\conf\extras\httpd-xampp.conf"
  Change path of "LoadModule php5_module" to 
- Of course, you have to activate the "mbstring" in the php.ini.
- Open the php.ini out of <xampp-folder>\apache\bin and edit it
- session.save_path -> single quotes instead of double quotes
- extension_dir -> change to where you php5.3 extracted to (subfolder 
ext) and remove the trailing slash or change to single quotes
- restart apache

I also had problems with the browscap.ini (whatever it is), just correct 
what is issued and then you are fine.

Re-/Start Apache and it should work...
Of course you can change the path to your htdocs-folder.
