Link to login to WP site with DesktopServer takes me to a blank page!

I followed the install videos for DesktopServer on Win10, and when I got to the point where DTS gives you the link, in my case http://wpdemo1.dev/wp-admin/install.php to login into the WP install, I just get a blank page. Please help!

I think the problem is this:

If you have Skype installed you may not be able to install WordPress as shown in this video. If you can't see the WordPress installation page after installing DesktopServer please open Skype and go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connections and uncheck the box "use port 80 and 443 as alternative". Then reboot your computer

Hope this helps
