    Trying to set up WP to run locally for development using windows 7 home premium on lap top. XAMPP is loaded & runs fine, but when trying to follow articles that explain how to install WP independant of internet access, either I am missing something or the article is.

    Anyone know of a good tutorial "that works" for my OS???

    tnx esmil;
    mostly done -- got to the point wp folder was dropped into 'www' folder. Entering the "http://127.0.0.1/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php" as prompted results in "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" -- diagnostic yields "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection Detected [yellow triangle w/!]". I have disabled McAfee Firewall.
    Any thoughts?

    Dream Weaver 'pirated' all WP php files & marked them as Dream Weaver files -- had to remove dream weaver & forgot to turn server back on. I'll let you know what happens

    Sorry for the delay -- had to shave & change for my internship.

    Too close to the prob -- thinking inside the inner box :-[

    http://127.0.0.1 allowed me to open the config file creation page. With all info entered & checked for correctness, the IE progress circle has been rotating for several minutes.
