    Hi,
    Did you install php and mysql ?
    You need to install php and you should be able to run on a http server like apache. Then install mysql also.
    Copy wordpress into the htdoc and run the index.php

    I think the problem is in your hosting account - not sure why you would need to install WP on your desktop, but here's what I typically do:

    I go to my admin panel at (insert host name, I use JustHost), check "fantastico" (big smiley face icon).

    Fantastico allows you to install a number of services, including WP, so I just hit WP, select the domain or sub-domain I'm working with, and hit install.

    Everything's done...

    Hope this helps, but I think Glacier may have helped you already.  I just do things a lot less technically.
