All I need is the Duplicater zip file and their install.php in a blank directory with nothing else installed. In my web browser I enter "http://newdomain.com/install.php" and it re-creates everything for me.
And of course if I was installing this locally I'd first create a MAMP Pro host for the site and copy both files to that directory. Then I'd run the install.php from the local hostname. "http://dev.livesite.com/install.php" as an example. And remember not to overwrite any existing db entries you may have with MAMP. If you have 6 local sites in MAMP, you will have 6 local wp databases. You may need to change the db names in the install.php so everything plays nice together..
YMMV, but it's been working out nicely for me.
