    Need to setup Wordpress Locally on Windows PC and edit the Themes using Dreamweaver. I know that this needs WAMP Server installation and other things.

    I need tutorials for setting up Wordpress properly and can be used with Dreamweaver, please suggest if you know. Thanks

    You could try AMPPS http://www.ampps.com for managing installations locally (although I recommend learning about setting up Apache, PHP, MySQL and manually installing scripts). As for editing in DW, no idea. I do it by hand. To be honest, you should too if you are wanting to make themes. Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript first and then move on to PHP. WordPress uses it for its template files and it's much easier to make a good theme when you understand what is going on. DW won't help with that, just hinder.

    I am sure @deathshadow can put it in better words.

    You cant open a wordpress site on Dreamweaver. You need to use wamp or xampp.

    I prefer XAMPP... just put what you want to test into /xampp/htdocs, use the copy of phpmyadmin it comes with to set up the database, and done.

    NOT that I'd EVER use that fat bloated steaming pile of halfwit idiotic MANURE known as dreamweaver, particularly for a CMS like turdpress... NOT that I'd EVER use that insecure bug-ridden steaming pile of manure known as Wordpress with it's halfwith idiotic theming system and shoving broken bloated code down your throat that just screams "Inheritance, what's that?!?"

    Dreamweaver and turdpress.... yeah.

    You can use a standalone portable WordPress development environment. It turns any Windows machine into a WordPress development server. It will even run from a USB key.

    Use wamp. http://www.wampserver.com/en/ Then download wordpress from their official site and install it on wamp. As others said, I wouldn't recommend dreamweaver either. I started of with it, then I started learning all web languages from the ground and directly wanted to switch away from the slow dreamweaver. I recommend you to study the basic of all the web languages (Html, Css, Javascript and Php) and then exploring on your own. That's the best way I know of learning the web.
