I reinstalled everything including installing Apache 2.2 as the webserver.
Solved the other errors.
Now, the remaining error is related to the connection to the database. (I was able to configure the MySQL with dreamweaver and add the store.sql database and it "works.") The error is relating to:
Notice Undefined variable: database_localhost and localhost in C:\htdocs\..\..\menu.php
the next line
Warning mysql_select_db() supplied is not a valid mysql-link resource in C:\htdocs\..\..menu.php
