Hello and thanks very much for the helpful replies.

Thanks to a suggestion from Steffen Gebert I found the (first) issue to be a default MySQL setting of "skip-networking" 
described further here (in case anyone else has the same problem)

(sorry wont let me post links .. maybe someone with privelidges can edit this ?)

Then I also had to use Loek's suggestion to replace "localhost" with "" in the install tool user interface.

After that (phew :-) I was able to install and setup typo3 locally.

Thanks again and Best Wishes
