    you'd have to install at least 3 applications: apache, PHP, mysql.
    to be able to work with mysql normally you would also need phpmysqladmin

    then you'd be able to run your board on your PC as a 'localhost'
    (also suitable for testing and development)

    however, it is highly advised NOT to go 'live' online with that PC unless it contains nothing important outside the forum etc; such a simple install will be highly insecure (full of security holes).

          There is also another similar program, called WAMP (which stands for Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). It is currently at version WAMP5 1.7.2.

          You will find WAMP here:

          http://www.wampserver.com/en/

          Either XAMPP or WAMP will install all the software you need on your windows machine to run vBulletin from localhost.
