Manually installing custom theme breaks localhost completely

I am trying to troubleshoot an issue I am having with my localhost environment running v5.7.3.1 via WAMP2.2 on windows 7. I am able to create a fresh install of concrete5, download/install/activate marketplace themes, however manually installed themes are breaking my localhost site completely. I am able to install/activate the theme within the dashboard without any issue, but once I attempt to preview, my site fails to load. Other members of my team are able to install and activate the same themes on mac without issue.

Fair warning, I am fairly new to using concrete5, so let me know if there is any information I failed to provide.

This should not be a Win/Mac issue but rather a MAMP/WAMP-issue.

If your colleagues are using Macs, they will likeley be using MAMP instead of WAMP on your Win7 machine.

Both programms are just creating a virtual Linux Environment where Apache and MySQL Server can be run.

First thing would be to check configurations. Are both MAMP and WAMPs using the same setup? Same PHP Version, same Apache Version, are they rooting to the same ports?

I've read some forum posts that there are sometimes problems with Windows-based environments because of the case-sensitivity which creates problems in SQL.

I have no idea what this might be yet, but these are the tracks I would check out...

Have you looked at the error log?

Try using MAMP and see it helps.

Where are you putting the 'themes' when you manually install, in the 'Application' folder?
