Yes, groups do work with a standalone. Just yesterday, I have set up the flotsam XmlRpcGroups implementation for my standalone which also uses a OpenSim 0.6.9 binary distribution provided by OSGrid.

Have you followed the installation instructions at http://code.google.com/p/flotsam/wiki/XmlRpcGroups? You do not need to care about the OpenSim module because it is already part of the OpenSim distribution.

Follow the link given in step 1) of the installation instructions and use the "Download Source" button in the upper right of that page to download a ZIP archive with everything you need (and some more).

Inside this ZIP archive, you'll find a subdirectory "XmlRpcGroupsServer". The contents of that directory are what you actually need to copy to your xampp/htdocs/groups directory. Your Apache web server must be able to run PHP scripts in this directory (since you are using XAMPP, I take it that this is  already the case).

Step 2) tells you to copy config.php.example to config.php and to edit it appropriately. Make sure that you provide the correct settings for the database (see next step). You can keep the default values for the "Group security" settings. (Once you have groups successfully running, you may want to change both $groupRequireAgentAuthForWrite and $groupEnforceGroupPerms to TRUE; they work fine in my setup.)

Step 3) requires you to add some tables to the MySQL database. You can add these tables to the same database that you are using for your standalone, or use a separate one. I added the tables to my existing standalone database with this command:
    mysql -u root -p standalone < groups.sql
"standalone" is the name of my database, and groups.sql is a file in the directory that you copied in step 1).  You will be asked for the database server's root password.

Now, in step 4), you can enable the settings in the [Groups] section in OpenSim.ini. Make sure that the GroupsServerURI is correct and that the other settings correspond to those you made in step 2. For example, the ReadKey and WriteKey must match in both OpenSim.ini and config.php.

Don't forget to restart your standalone after making these adjustments.

Please let us know if you still have problems with the setup.

OK, I haven't tried it yet, I only just woke up.  But I didn't want to
wait to thank you, that was the most comprehensive discription I have
seen yet.  I will let you know how it all goes.  And it sounds like this
should help.  The first time I tried to get each file off of flotsom's
site individually.  I never noticed the zip file.  I am a legally blind,
only one useful eye and one that gets fuzzy after to much use.  That
alonge with a kidney transplant.  I don't know if that zip was there
before or I might have missed it.  But this sounds like it will help
me.  Thanks again.

I really apprecaite your time.
