    If you want to use WordPress on your local computer, you need to set up a hosting environment first - see:

    HELP, WPyogi have not heard from you, SOMEONE ,help.
    I downloaded this: from the same page, ...it's called
    Easy 5 Minute WordPress Installation on Windows
    Download, install, and configure WordPress with the Microsoft Web Platform Installer (Web PI). Installation is very easy and takes on average about 5 minutes to complete.

    I thought when I went to the page you suggested above, and saw this, it was the same thing, so I downloaded, then tried downloading wp 351, should i uninstall windows versions and install this? from what you suggested at http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Installing_WordPress_on_your_own_Computer
    please advise me if you have time, totally lost.thanks, /mrmoxy/don

    I'm sorry you have not been helped here, but everyone helping is a volunteer so people come and go as they have time. I don't use Windows so I can't really advise you on installing WP on a Windows machine. But I have heard that Instant WordPress is easy to use, so maybe that would be a good thing to try.

    If you are using Windows one of two things to use come to mind: XAMPP or WAMPP

    Both are pretty easy installs and quick to setup as well. The biggest bit of advice is to read the documentation.
