    I have successfully installed WordPress on my Wampserver. How do I launch WordPress now?

    //localhost/wp-admin/install.php

    If you put wordpress in its own directory, be sure to include that in the address.

    Example: //localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    Thank you for the reply. I put that in the browser and it did not work. I must be doing something incorrectly. I am a real novice with this.

    What do you get when you just use //localhost ?

    I thought I had Apache up and running. I clicked on start all services.

    You may want to review the wampserver installaton documentation just to make sure everything is as it should be. I think if you click the "localhost" entry from the wampserver menu in your task-bar, you should see the default wampserver pages/menu if everything is installed and working properly.
