I just tried both XAMP and Abyss. I noticed that both want the html
documents as a subfolder of their installation.
In any case I could not get either to work with my documents in a
different folder. So I gave up and downloaded and installed the latest
WAMP5 package for windows.
This installed smoothly with the installer, has php5, apache and
sqlite. It asked which folder I wanted as root for the html documents,
and runs fine now with the various wiki websites on this machine.

I did not install it on  a memory stick though.
Are there any reasons not to use it?
