Hello experts.

I am trying to install joomla on my computer.

1. Tried to install joomla via webmatrix- got stuck with site password doesn't match.
No idea how to solve this problem.

2. Now I try to install joomla using installation files.
I have IIS and Apache working on my machine.

According to:
http://docs.joomla.org/Installation

I should copy joomla files to my server directory.
But where is my server directory?

Tried to add site to SItes on IIS, then clicked start. Got error message: "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

Questions:
1. What password should I type in the first case scenario?
2. Should I be using IIS- how should I use it?
2.1 Maybe Apache? But how?

As you noticed I am newbie...

Please help me :-)

 Easiest way to install Joomla on an IIS box.

Server directory on a Windows machine would be c:\inetpub\wwwroot

This link could help you with the password problem.

http://www.microsoft.com/web/joomla it says that product is not supported on my operating system (Win 7 pro 64bit)

http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=2389496 uninstalled and deleted files. Assigned new password, in the next step it turns out that my password does not match....

Enter your DB Administrator password ...... that you set up for MySQL - don't put in a "new" password.  That should do the trick.

If not - Could you do a screenshot of the stage you are at with the installation?

Have you an existing installation of MySQL?  WebMatrix may not recognize it.  This is not that unusual I believe.  If you can - let WebMatrix install MySQL for you as part of the installation of an application - for example, Joomla will pull in MySQL as a dependency.

If you install Joomla and it prompts you to install MySQL, you will need to remember the "root" user password you create during that installation, and type it in again when Joomla asks for the database administrator username/password.

If the installation of Joomla didn't prompt you to install MySQL, then WebMatrix is detecting MySQL to be installed already. In that case, you need to ensure that the MySQL server is actually running and accepting connections (which may mean you need to start the MySQL service).
