xammp local server set up

Hi
How do I transfer the local server from the windows IIS to xammp?
I just want to test my site on DreamWeaver, the preview browser goes to the home page OK. When I test the sites btns, the browser reads this error:
(HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.)

Have you turned off your IIS also you just need to copy all folders to the new one on xampp i think its c:\xampp\htdocs

Hi Sades
Yes, IIS is turned of and the path is absolute in the C drive to xammp/htdocs/
Some how I think it is the DW diretory but it doe's not display its Amnesia.
Thanks for your reply

Double check the URL you are using verses the file location.

For example, if the URL in the browser is:
test.php

the test.php page must exist at the following location:
c:\xampp\htdocs\mysite\test.php


also. php is case sensitive, check the case of the paths:
test.php

is not the same as:
test.php

Hi Jason
Thanks for the advise.
I did not know that php was case sensitive...
Here is the physical path in the browsers detailed error information.
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mainFrame1.html
I've un-installed and deleted the whole IIS install including using safe mode F8.
After and before I ran a case and root folders reconfigs and the same http error arrives.
The site was prioly made and ran before on IIS.
How do I get the frames to follow the index.html as DW F12 runs the home page but not the frames via btns, anyone?

the folder that xampp uses as the root for serving html pages is:
c:\xampp\htmldocs


you should copy the files at c:\inetpub\wwwroot to c:\xampp\htmldocs

Thanks Jason
As with much of forum natter, it is I think a case 50% personal reflection that brings issues to a resolve and in this case I've decided to just build another frameset in to c:/xammp/htdoc and add the pre-made content rather than figure out why the DW frames think their located elsewhere.
