How to get CF8 Developer version to work

I installed CF8 Developer version to my desktop to use as a testing area.  Is there a trick to get this to work on my desktop or will it not work at all?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I did install it already.  When I try to bring up the Administrator page, the browser comes up with an IP address (the desktops) and then gives a Network Error (tcp_error) of "Connection refused".
My desktop is Windows XP.
