    I followed the instructions at this link to install xampp, create database, and download wordpress and update wp-config.php file:
    http://wpmu.org/install-wordpress-locally-on-windows-with-xampp/

    All worked well until I tryed to Install WordPress (step 7).

    Object Not Found (error 404)

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks much!
    (I am new to WordPress - this is my first install)

    try without editing wp-config.php file i.e. after you create database install WordPress (http://localhost/wp-admin/install.php) providing correct database details.

    get rid of xampp, use wamp or mamp. then run the install and enter in the database, username / password info from there.
