    Can you be more specific? What exactly doesn't work? Error message? Is WordPress installed in the
    /apachefriends/xampp/htdocs/ folder?

    So I moved wordpress folder to C:\xampp\xampplite\htdocs than looks like C:\xampp\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress. Next step: I checked http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php doesn`t work "Error establishing a database connection" page browser shows me! Where is the problem?!!

    Though I am not using the "lite"... I assume the rest works in a similar way. Did you create a database using the phpMyadmin? Did you put the correct infor into the wp-config.php file?

    Ah, yes, - as Podz said above :)
    Before trying to open in the browser, do you click Start and Start for the Apache and MySQL in the XAMPP Control window?
