I followed a suggestion from a post by installing XAMPP and it is now running.

I've saved all the files inside the upload folder to "C:\Documents and Settings\PochiYPoki\My Documents\My Websites\test"

I created a new user in mysql that i will use for opencart (the user has full access but not sure if i need to attach the open cart db into mysql? or is that done in the install?)

4. Visit the store homepage
e.g. http://www.example.com or http://www.example.com/store/

I know I'm missing some fundamental thing here but seems like some instructions are missing between step 3 and 4 how do i make http://www.example.com point to the correct area where i saved the files?

Xampp has a directory called htdocs your website should be installed to there.

To run it you would type http://localhost/

or if you want to put it in a directory of its own called opencart or something then to run it type http://localhost/opencart/

sweet, that worked

so now I'm looking at the "pre-installation" and i see some issues...

1. Please configure your PHP settings to match requirements listed below.
PHP Settings:
Magic Quotes GPC: On Off

How do i turn this off?

2. Please make sure the extensions listed below are installed.
Extension
cURL: Off On

that file does not exist in "C:\xampp\apache\bin"

Also ...though perhaps it will be straight forward when i find the file, but what do i change in the file?
