So I found a portable server called "TWAMP" (Tiny Windows Apache MySQL PHP Portable Web Server). Works great with OpenCart. The only change I made was disable magic quotes gpc in the php.ini. Everything else works out-of-the-box
It is nice that its all in one place and portable so next time i reformat I won't need to reinstall or reconfigure. And it is all handled by a single exe file that runs in the tasktray for easy start/stop/restart of php, apache, and mysql.
So I highly recommend it to those looking to run their own local test servers

I am really new to this whole "having a server of my own" thing for testing..
New as of today when I followed your advice to try TWAMP.
I liked the ideal of all in one and no install..
I tried installing OC on my localhost. And of course when I ran the install I saw the "magic quotes" setting was on (as you said it would be)
I know this is not a TWAMP forum but could you quickly clue me in to where I need to go to turn off "magic quotes" ? And how to change root password?

There should be entries like:
magic_quotes_gpc = On
magic_quotes_runtime = Off
magic_quotes_sybase = Off
You simply write instead of On Off or instead of Off On and save the result. After that restart your TWAMP.
OpenCart works with Magic Quotes On or Off.
Info from PHP Manual:
This feature (Magic Quotes) has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 6.0.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged.
