I found this answer on the server press site, which resolved the issue for me:
Do you have Skype installed? If so please go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connections and uncheck the box “use port 80 and 443 as alternative”. Then reboot your computer.
And start DesktopServer and click the [ Sites ] button
Here's the link to the site if that helps!

I had the same issue.. try the following.. 1- I had to unblock the port 80 setting a new rule through the windows firewall advanced settings.. in some win10 version this can be done by disabling the World Wide Web Publishing Services through the services.msc 2- I had to modify the C:\xampplite\apache\conf\httpd.conf file Server name from localhost to 127.0.0.1, remove the site reinstall it all over again.. 3- modify the wp-config.php in your installed site file directory to match your server name and databse settings
