Hi to all.
Yesterday, I have installed locally (localhost) Silverstripe 2.4.5: no problem, everything works fine.
Today, I wanted to install any module (eg, forums or blogs).
I know that the module must be placed in the root folder of SilverStripe: done.
I also know that for activate the module in the CMS must rebuild the database going to the link http://localhost/yoursite/dev/build/?flush=1
Here's my problem, the root of SilverStripe (just downloaded and installed) contains the following folders:
The folder "dev" does not exist! How can I install any form?
I use Wampserver (latest version) with Windows 7 64 bit.
I thank everyone for the responses.

Hi there, dev isnt a folder, its just an instruction,
1) get your module and unzipp to your desktop
2) look at the modules folder name, you may have to alter it.. (for example ecomemmerce module folder needs to be renamed to ecommerce)
3) drag the module folder into silverstripe root.
4) and this bit is where the "dev" bit comes in, run localhost/name_of_my_silverstripe_folder_project/dev/build
obviuosly this bit "name_of_my_silverstripe_folder_project/" needs to be the name of your folder for your SS project.
This is just a basic install of a module, there is more to it, if theres a read me in the Module folder then read it and also check out the modules _config.php file for any config options that you may need toimplement
some more info here http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/topics/modules

Excuse me Mrfixer but I don't understand.
Step 1: ok
Step 2: ok
Step 3: ok
Step 4: the link would: http:\\localhost\folderofsilverstripesite\dev\build ???
Doesn't work simply because these folders doesn't exists.
For example, I want installed the Forum module.
My folder root is as follow:
we suppose that my site (folder root) is called "goofy".
For the activate the Forum module, I should write: http://localhost/goofy/dev/build or http://localhost/goofy/forum/dev/build...???
In both cases, the system doesn't work.
What is the right syntax for activate the module in question?

Your folder structure is right, there is no need for a "dev or a build" folder,
this is correct >>> http://localhost/goofy/dev/build
EDIT: Silverstripe 2.4.5 and http://silverstripe.org/assets/modules/stable/forum-0.3-r113106.tar.gz on a test install just worked fine for me
try adding this line into your mysite/_config.php file
// dev testing environment. dev or live

I had written "For the activate the Forum module, I should write: http://localhost/goofy/dev/build" and then "In both cases, the system doesn't work."
Now, you write "this is correct >>> http://localhost/goofy/dev/build" that is what I wrote (it doesn't work, http error 404).
What's the problem (I used several cms and never found these difficulties)???
I have downloaded your forum but the error is always same (and could not be otherwise since the syntax of this command indicate two folders that doesn't exists).
I think to change cms: I'm disappointed 'cos, for me, SilverStripe is a very good CMS.

are you running a new install of WAMP, try this in your wampservers apache httpd.con file
and have this line uncommented
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
save file, restart wamp

Dear Mrfixer, you're GREAT!!!
MANY MANY MANY thanks for your support!!!
Now, I'll try other modules!
You're a friend!
P.S. I must repeat the same thing every time that I install a new module?

Its a pleasure, For other modules just run /dev/build, no more editing of the httpd.conf file
