    Pretty easy, actually for a Windows user like you...Ok, first you need to install a service engine, scripting language parse like PHP4 or PHP5/6, and a database like Mysql. Since you are using WAMP 2.0, then it would be easy for these three to install.
    Step 1...

    Install wamp2.0 in a default directory

    Step 2...

    Download the Akelos framework in tar.gz/zip.

    Step 3...

    Extract the Akelos in the Drive:\wamp\www like Drive:\wamp\www\AkelosFolder

    Step 4...

    go to cmd type C:\>wamp\www\akelosFolder\akelos_framework\

    Step 5...

    You need to find the php.exe somewhere in your wamp folder so that you can use the script/setup for the Akelos..
    And after that...follow this link tutorial: http://akelos.org/wiki/booklink-quickstart-on-windows
    our advice to you is to use the xampp server instead of wamp though its more complicated....

    One convenient thing is to map the root of your web address to your application's /public directory so that your dev environment would be same as your production envionment (if, in your production site, akelos application is the root of the web page).
    This is done in 2 steps:
    1) modify \windows\system32\etc\hosts file, add an IP mapping, e.g.:
    127.0.0.1 localhost wordpress wp1 wp2 wp3 myapp1 myapp2
    2) edit \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf
    add sth like this:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/xampp/htdocs/myapp1/public
    ServerName myapp1
    </VirtualHost>

    Now you can point your browser to http://myapp1/ instead of http://localhost/myapp1/public.
