Ok so I downloaded, followed typical install (as above). Once installed I got error message: can't run because missing MSVCR110.dll. Said to run the install again, so I did. Same thing. I uninstalled all componenets, downloaded again. Reinstalled and got same message. What am I doing wrong?

Download file MSVCR110.dll and copy to the system32 folder

Funny I love Aragorn also.

Hi, i found some detail steps regarding installation of WAMP server on this link..

I just started using wamp on mswindows, but I have not had that issue. I will check it out.

My wampserver install:

If you use ddns, you can get a domain free for a limited time.

Once you start using a web server, you will wonder why you never used one before. I run my private apache web server on an old an old pII. It is currently running Ubuntu though I prefer debian when I am not running centos. I had it on I think ubuntu server 6.x and have done in-place upgrades as they came along the way to 9.x. (i.e. no reformatting or disk wiping). This is an example of the actual web pages i run on it. I have since added doing home automation on it. Keep finding uses for that legacy computer. Microsoft Windows Supporters said I should have thrown away a long time ago. It is not what you use, but how you use it.

I would help you, but I did this instructable so long ago, and plus, I'm now on Mac so I'm afraid I can't help you. Try looking on the internet and asking in the questions section of Instructables.
