    Thanks for the suggestions. I have finally found the problem, and it leaves me rather baffled. Prior to posting in this forum I did first read a number of online instructions, including the one in the previous post. None of them worked. After describing my problem in detail on the Wamp forum, I was informed that, in order to get WordPress to work there were three crucial steps: 1) Install Wamp, 2)Create a Virtual Host using Wamp 3)Install WordPress in the site folder specified when creating the Virtual Host. This worked perfectly. I find it really strange that none of the online instructions mention the need for a Virtual Host. They all say – first install Wamp, then install WordPress in the localhost/www/ folder.
