Error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in Statement.php on line 59

This could be an old issue as I have seen in Google search. I am trying to install Drupal 8.2.5 on localhost, but the installation ends up with a fatal error at the very end, while all 40 operations seem have been completed. An error message shows:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in <root folder>corelibDrupalCoreDatabaseStatement.php on line 59

Here is the PC S/W environment: Firefox 50.1.0, XAMPP v3.2.2 (Nov 12, 2015), Drupal 8.2.5
Machine: 64-bit Windows Pro 7 Service Pack-1, i5 CPU 3.2GHz, 8G RAM

The machine has been wiped clean. No other application was running at the time.

Please let me know if any suggestions on how to get around the issue.

Many thanks.
