Having Trouble Installing MediaWiki

Question

I have been using XAMPP to install MediaWiki on my Windows 10 computer. The installation was going smoothly while I was following the guide here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installing_MediaWiki#Download_MediaWiki_software until I had to run the installation script. When I typed "localhost/w" into the search bar, instead of telling me that LocalSettings.php could not be found, and I could set up the wiki, it gave me an error that looked like this:

MediaWiki 1.36 internal error. Installing some PHP extensions is required.

Required components

You are missing a required extension to PHP that MediaWiki requires to run. Please install: intl 

After searching the web for a bit, I figured out that I needed to enable the intl extension by going into php.ini in the php folder and uncommenting "extension=intl". I figured that would solve the issue, but when I tried loading "localhost/w" again, it looks like a new problem popped up:

If I scroll down, it does give me the option of setting up a new wiki, but I'm not sure if I should without resolving the issue first. If you guys couldn't tell, I don't know anything about coding at all, so any help is appreciated. 

Some relevant maybe useful information:

I am using the most recent versions of Media Wiki (1.36.1) and I am using XAMPP 7.3.28 because apparently (from what I've read) the php files that come with the more recent versions don't work with MediaWiki. 

Thanks in advance!
