The image that you have uploaded shows that you missed out the steps as specified in the  "Getting Ready for Moodle Installation "

1. First follow each and every step as shown in the video "Getting Ready for Moodle Installation ". Give the same database name, username as shown in the video. It will be easy to follow the other tutorials
2. Next do the steps as shown in the video "Installing Moodle on Local Server".  At 9:16, the video explains about each and every field.

It will work as expected if you exactly re-produce what we have specified in the video.

We don't have the installation steps for Windows 8.1

Please check:

Please go through the below link for installation of moodle on windows 10. (see the second page of the .pdf file)

Make sure you have followed the exact steps and check whether XAMPP is running.

Then you should have mentioned it in the requirements of the course that the participants need to have either linux or windows 10 to do this course.

It is not that difficult to do the installation on windows. Check the XAMPP server is running successfully or not. Then proceed with the installation step.

Refer this link:

We have specified in each tutorial as below:
For this series we have used the following OS and software
Ubuntu Linux OS 16.04
Apache, MariaDB and PHP obtained through XAMPP 5.6.30 and
Moodle 3.3
