WAMP stands for Microsoft Windows operating system, Apache web server, MySQL database, and PHP general-purpose scripting language for server side Web development. Among WAMP server packages, I like WampServer since it easy to instal, have latest version from Apache, MySQL and PHP and it's free. Before you install the WampServer, you need to make sure your computer have:
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 run-time. Without Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 run-time, you will see the error message "vcr100.dll missing" when install.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1. This fixed the problem 'aestan tray menu has stopped' when you start the WampServer
To install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632 )
On Windows 2008R2 server, make sure .NET Framework 3.5.1 enable. It disable by default. ( http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/ac1bf719-0a88-4b5d-be98-395f2623e805/what-version-of-net-framework-comes-with-windows-2008-r2 )
