Seeing you are on windows vista I'm guessing you are setting up a dev  

Consider using a package like xampp. Xampp as memory serves uses all  
relative paths in conf files, can be installed anywhere like your  
Desktop as an example and you can just delete the dir if you want it  
to go away. You can always look at how it's put together to possibly  
understand the problems your having.

There may be better packages for windows then xampp and since I don't  
use windows I can't vouch for it though this has worked for artist  
type friends of mine on windows.
