I would like to use Mediawiki as a Website Administration Tool ! 
But, even with some knowledge in Computers, just as an User ! 
Unfortunately, I loaded it easyly, but did not succed to let it run ! 
As I told before, providing a mesh of Files is not enough ! 
A Launcher is compusory, and, in the case of a Computer with Windows as OS, 
a "setup.exe" or simillar ! 
The Mediawiki community did not take much part in help for such a "dumb's affair" ! 
Too bad ! I am sorry to use this contact just for a such stupid fact, 
but improving Mediawiki begins to let it Start "everywhere" ! 
Thank you for your attention. 
Eric Beaussart.
