Rather than re-invent the wheel, have removed the WAMP stack and installed the XAMP stack as per your instructions.
(why create more php pages when phpinfo does it all - supposedly - for you?)

The control panel says Apache and MySQL are running.

I created a password (as Win 7 has an issue with internal file security when there is no password to a userid - just covering all the bases)

This works as when I hit the admin box in the XAMP control panel and the phpmyadmin/info screen loads it asks for id/password first - which is accepted and the app loads.

I can import the "free" database (I selected "digital downloads".

Am now further behind as I can no longer create a db connection from dreamweaver, following the site definition process (correct if you believe the dreamweaver "ticks" that appear when you follow the 4 steps in the database connections tab) and reported separately as a "404 Error".

I have followed strictly, each step in the tutorials.

NOTE: I am running all this on the desktop I use for dev; it is a 64bit Win 7 pro PC.

Does XAMP have a problem with 64 bit code?

As it says it is a 32 bit version ?

Have read so many PHP/MySQL pages of doco am going cross eyed...

Also, when looking at the "STATUS" tab in the admin panel, the Advisor never completes (circle image keeps revolving) and the monitor page says the "server is not running"?
