    Looks like the server is not running... did you start it?
    from the installation docs:

    Launch EasyPHP
    We can't properly talk about the launch of EasyPHP, it's only the
    fact of starting the Apache and MySQL server. After the installation, a
    shortcut to EasyPHP is created in the directory
    "Start/Programs/EasyPHP". Once EasyPHP is launched, an icon is placed
    in the System Tray. Click on it to access on the different menus :
    · Log file: reporting every generated errors from Apache and MySQL
    · Configuration : a simple interface to configure EasyPHP
    · Web local : open the URL "http://localhost/"
    · Start/Stop : start/stop Apache and MySQL service
    · Quit : do I need to explain? :p

    My first guess is that the MySQL server is not running. It seems from
    [url]http://www.easyphp.org/presentation.php3[/url] that there should be a system
    tray icon with a Start/Stop menu.

    Also for another possible explanation of the erro, see:

    Thanks for the quick response. Yes, I selected 'redemarrer' which is to
    restart the proccesses, I assume. In any case, I see both a mysqld.exe
    and apache.exe process in the task mgr.

    Any other thoughts?

    It seems to have been my firewall; thanks for your help!

    ZoneAlarm?

    one of the reasons I use mysql/php on a linux box :)

    Do you have any firewall settings that might block port 3306 from
    accepting connections? Examples: ZoneAlarm, or Windows XP Personal
    Firewall. If so, do you find any configuration or logs indicating that
    the firewall is blocking port 3306?

    Do you have an entry for 'localhost' in the file
    "%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"? The entry should map to the
    IP address "127.0.0.1".

    Do you find an error log at this location:
    C:\Program Files\EasyPHP1-7\mysql\data\<hostname>.err
    Where <hostname> is the name of your computer?
    If so, do you find any useful information in it, indicating that the
    MySQL server has started and is listening on port 3306 successfully?
