Error: The service ‘wampapache64’ is not started

The possible cause of this error is

  • Some app is using port 80 and you need to disable that app. (Skype is know to use port 80 so if you have Skype installed, check that)
  • You might have missing Visual C++ extension required for wamp.
  • If you have IIS enabled, disable it or change port from 80 to something else.

You can download all required VC packages from these links. Download and install all VC packages and install wamp. Note that if you have already installed WAMP, uninstall it and install VC packages first and install WAMP again
